carbon offsetting
Allikaviide: OED Online; BRITANNICA; IATE; 92742; 92743; 92744
Kontekst: Carbon offsetting aims to achieve an overall net reduction in greenhouse gases. Rather than reducing carbon emissions, individuals and businesses are encouraged to compensate for their emissions to achieve a carbon neutral net result. [92743]
Kontekst: For a long time, organizations have considered carbon offsetting as a way to show they are committed to sustainability and engaged in fighting climate change, without actually making any real commitments to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. Purchasing carbon credits and claiming to be carbon neutral has therefore been highly criticized by environmental NGOs and has been referred to as greenwashing. [92742]
Allikaviide: 92743
Kontekst: Tree planting is the most common form of offsetting, but it can also be achieved through renewable energy and energy conservation. [92743]
