ABSTRACT
The article discusses the financial and environmental benefits of carbon offsetting and explores how companies are taking on it. It notes that industries are adopting carbon offsets, such as tree-planting and wind farms, as part of their emission-reduction projects. However, some companies are trying to justify their carbon emissions by spending too much on carbon-neutral projects.
