The Greenfleet Difference: why not all offsets are created equal
With the urgency of climate change impacting all aspects of life, individuals and organisations are increasingly aware that they must take action. While some have led the way in taking practical action to reduce their carbon footprint, others are only just beginning to manage their environmental journey.
Greenfleet enables individuals and organisations to take climate action by supporting native reforestation projects to offset their emissions. This is a clear and impactful way we can all make a difference to the planet.
There has been increasing and valid criticism over the carbon market, and the environmental benefit actually occurring through carbon offsetting. The reputation of the carbon offset market has been tainted by low quality carbon credits, which would not stand up well under scrutiny.
Greenfleet strongly believes carbon offsetting is not an opportunity to greenwash, extend the use of fossil fuels, or a license to pollute. However, quality offsetting projects continue to play an important role as we transition to a low carbon economy.
