How to Confidently Buy High-integrity Carbon Offsets - 100% Renewables

Episode #19 - Recorded on Nov 30, 2023

How to Confidently Buy High-integrity Carbon Offsets

“It doesn’t make sense to go carbon neutral and purchase carbon offsets that might be dodgy. The purpose of achieving carbon neutrality is that you want to prove to the marketplace that you care about the environment and that you are taking a stand against climate change.  You don’t want to open yourself up to reputational damage. “

In this special episode of “Driving Profit with Net Zero emissions” podcast, we’re revisiting a recent webinar that we hosted in collaboration with TEM (Tasman Environmental Markets) — “How to confidently buy high-integrity carbon offsets.”

The webinar breaks down the intricacies of carbon offsetting and provides a clear pathway for strategic carbon credit purchasing.

In this episode, Barbara Albert and Nicolas Francois were joined by our guest speakers from TEM, Brett Giddings (Head of Digital Solutions), and Rebecca Heard (Manager of Corporate Partnerships and Digital Solutions).

In this episode, we cover:
