Purchase Carbon Offsets

Traveling to conferences and meetings takes a lot of time, energy and capital. It also takes a toll on the environment. A good way to help balance your travel carbon footprint is to purchase "carbon offsets."

Carbon offsets include actions taken to compensate for carbon emitting human energy use from travel by car, boat, train, or plane. The goal is to "offset" the environmental impact by supporting actions that help reduce carbon emissions.

To search for certified standards groups from whom you can purchase carbon offsets, visit The Gold Standard or Green-E. To calculate your carbon footprint and to learn more about carbon emissions, please visit the EPA's Carbon Footprint Calculator website.
