How compatible is flying with having a good (climate) conscience? More and more airlines and passengers are opting to offset the climate impact of flights. With carbon offsetting, the climate impact of flights is offset by measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (e.g. renewable energy projects) implemented by others.
But how does offsetting actually work? How useful is it? Does it really offset the climate impact of flying? Which credits are good? We answer the most important questions about offsetting greenhouse gas emissions and introduce the newer concept of “climate responsibility” and give practical advice for offsetting.
