The goal of achieving 100% renewable energy is challenging but achievable. Along the way, the cost-effective capacity of efficiency and renewable energy opportunities may fall short of your desired target. Equally, some plans may be delayed, not achieve their full potential, or your business growth may be different from what was expected.

In these circumstances, carbon offsets may be a good way to ensure targets are met while maintaining the target pathway to 100% renewables. This may be particularly helpful where, for example, transport and stationary fuel sources cannot readily be transitioned to renewables.
