What is Carbon Offsetting?

For Infection 360, we are working with a carbon consultant to work out the emissions for the event with an aim to reduce these and potentially offset on completion of the event.

When you carbon offset, you compensate for your emissions by funding an equivalent carbon dioxide saving elsewhere in the world.

This is done by purchasing carbon credits from a scheme that works to reduce or absorb carbon emissions. The projects you fund may be initiatives that provide lower carbon alternatives, such as cookstoves to replace open fires; or they may be projects that protect or enhance natural resources that absorb carbon from the atmosphere, such as reforestation initiatives.
