Event description
This session explains exactly what carbon offsetting is and provides advice on how to choose a good carbon offsetting project

About this Event

Carbon Offsetting is a highly regulated means to decarbonise national grids across the world and reduce emissions (e.g. through energy saving technology and sequestration of carbon by trees). In recent times, carbon offsetting has become quite high profile in the media – however journalists don’t have a strong grasp on the science & mechanisms (particularly the popular press) and can cause confusion - in the same way they often do with medical or other scientific advances.

This session sets the record straight by explaining exactly what carbon offsetting is, how it plays a role in achieving your carbon and climate targets (and broader CSR objectives) and fundamentally how to choose a good carbon offsetting project.

At this session there will also be an exciting announcement about the launch of the new EM3 LEP Carbon Management programme – which includes free on-site energy surveys and access to matched funding for energy reducing technologies for qualifying SMEs.

There will also be plenty of networking opportunities, to extend discussions with fellow delegates.
