I plant a tree
ProblemCarbon offsetting projects help to combat global climate change as well as caring for local communities.
Every tree captures Carbon dioxide. A potential way to offset your greenhouse gas emissions is planting trees.
Carbon offsetting funds solutions to reducing carbon emissions. Frequently carbon offsetting reduces emissions much faster than you can as an individual/single company.
In many instances providing much needed employment, health improvement, biodiversity, reforestation and broad social benefits to impoverished communities.
A Carbon offset is a way to compensate for your emissions by funding an equivalent carbon dioxide saving elsewhere. Our everyday actions, at home and at work, consume energy and produce carbon emissions, such as driving, flying and heating buildings. Carbon offsetting is used to balance out these emissions by helping to pay for emission savings in other parts of the world.
The idea is to think about a tool providing to buy carbon offset credits to finance reforestation projects. The challenge is to ensure that each compensation is only sold once.
Blockchain-based solutions can ensure this transparency.
