FAQs about the Carbon Footprint

7. What is it to be Carbon Neutral?

The concept “neutral carbon” is a condition of being. In effect, the correct thing is to say, “be carbon neutral.” Neutral carbon is considered to be a person, organization or a product capable of removing the same amount of CO2 from the atmosphere that it has emitted. To achieve this, various strategies can be used, for example, acquire wind farms or large areas planted with solar panels. Both systems correspond to clean energy but can also buy “carbon offsets” from countries that have issued less greenhouse gases to their quota.
