Unlocking the Hidden Value of Carbon Offsetting

As businesses increasingly take steps to reduce their carbon footprint and consider their overall impact on the environment, leading new research shows that carbon offset programmes deliver substantially more benefits than expected – bringing value that might previously have been hidden.

For many years there has been anecdotal evidence that investing in a carbon offset programme delivers a wide range of positive social and economic benefits beyond just carbon reduction.Now, new academic research shows that every tonne of CO2 offset not only funds GHG reductions, but can deliver up to a staggering $664 in additional economic, social and environmental benefits.Leading businesses that follow best practice and offset their carbon emissions as part of a broader carbon management strategy, experience business benefits and see additional value from the carbon reduction projects they support.
