ABSTRACT
The article focuses on finding reliable carbon offset programs for retailers to help decrease greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Renewable energy and energy-efficient projects are two types of activities cited that can generate carbon offsets. Certifications for carbon offsets include the Voluntary Carbon Standard (VCS), Green-e Climate and the Gold Standard. The World Resources Institute (WRI) put out a carbon emissions calculator at the Web site www.ghgprotocol.org.
