Have You Ever Wondered What Carbon Offsetting Really Is?
March 25 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Every single business, organization and person has an “unavoidable” carbon footprint. But we don’t yet have 100% alternative energy solutions across the planet. Carbon offsetting is a way for organizations or individuals to offset the energy they use by way of supporting projects that are aimed at reducing GHG emissions elsewhere. Most carbon offsetting projects are based in developing countries and can include provision of efficient cook stoves. Approximately 3 billion people, mostly women, still cook on open fires, causing serious health issues and environmental damage. In addition to freeing women from tending to stoves all day, this carbon offsetting approach mitigates the climate crisis and can improve overall health.
