    (June 23, 2021) - The shift toward “net zero” is on. Reaching aspirational goals to stave off the worst of global warming requires a multifaceted approach that includes one critical pathway that is sometimes mentioned but often underestimated- carbon offsets.

    The good news is the design and use of offsets has been proven over the past nearly 20 years, providing a host of benefits that complement, not substitute for a company’s efforts to cut emissions internally. Actions such as stopping deforestation and restoring agricultural soils are not optional but a requirement to stabilize the climate.
