6: Carbon Offsetting

How to Make a Difference - Cover

One of the easiest ways to have a measurable impact in the fight against climate change is to invest in projects that draw down carbon from the atmosphere.

For this episode we invited two guests: Anja Kollmuss, a climate expert who has researched carbon markets for more than 20 years and Lambert Schneider, a research coordinator for international climate policy at the Öko-Institut and a member and former chair of the UNFCCC CDM executive board. They shine a light on the complexity of carbon offsetting and things you should keep in mind when trying to offset your carbon footprint.
