Do carbon offsets really work?

Carbon offsets work by way of paying for others to reduce emissions or absorb carbon dioxide in an effort to compensate for your own emissions. Not all carbon offsets are created equal, so there are third-party agencies and nonprofits that work to independently verify claims made by carbon offsetting projects. Carbon offsets that are verified by organizations like the American Carbon Registry, Gold Standard, and VERRA have been scientifically proven to reduce carbon in the atmosphere. While carbon offsets are far from a perfect solution to human-generated carbon emissions, by offsetting the emissions associated with shipping and e-commerce, there is a net positive result on the environment, which works to reduce the impact of climate change.
