Climate campaign targets offsets

Date : 21st February 2007, Source : BBC Link to News Story



Climate campaigners have occupied the offices of one of Britain's leading carbon management companies to protest against carbon offsetting. London Rising Tide activists say offsetting, which sees firms pay for emissions cuts elsewhere rather than curbing their own emissions, is a scam. The group has occupied meeting space of the CarbonNeutral Company, formerly Future Forests, in central London. Offsetting is practised by a number of UK companies and the government.
