HOW CARBON BALANCING WORks Put simply, Carbon Balancing is where the carbon impacts of a product or service have been estimated and an equivalent amount of carbon dioxide is either prevented from being released into, or is absorbed from, the atmosphere.
of the largest companies surveyed are taking action to reduce their carbon emissions
Carbon Balancing is facilitated by the World Land Trust, an international conservation charity, through the preservation of high conservation forests. Through land purchase of ecologically important standing forests, under threat of clearance, carbon is locked that would otherwise be released. These protected forests are then able to continue absorbing carbon from the atmosphere. Referred to as REDD (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation), this is now recognised as one of the most cost-effective and swiftest ways to arrest the rise in atmospheric CO2 and global warming effects.
