Carbon Offsetting is a way to reduce our CO2 emissions by funding projects such as building a wind farm etc. Indeed, the C02 is one of the causes of global warming.
There are two types of carbon offsetting, such as the compliance carbon offsetting and the voluntary carbon offsetting. The difference between the two is that the voluntary carbon offsetting is independent of Kyoto Protocol and local regulatory systems. Whether you are a business or an individual we can all buy offsets (CERs, VERs?).

Therefore each of us can contribute to a greener environment. To choose which type of offsets to purchase, it is best to visit the official website of "Department of Energy and Climate Change". There is a significant level of advice available to give the best information in order to act in an environmentally friendly manner. This is also in appliance to the Quality Assurance Scheme for Carbon offsetting to help you choose a good quality offset. However, you can find a list of approved projects already by the Government
