Following on from my previous post about carbon offset schemes, I discovered via the BBC that the government has decided to provide a voluntary standard for schemes. Their initial recommendation is to go for one of the following four schemes that meet their evolving standard:
- Global Cool
- Carbon Offsets
The last one, Carbon Offsets Ltd., is difficult to find information on. It is in partnership with the Airport Operators Association, probably as a result of the government’s investigations, which seems to have been initiated by the AOA in the first place.
In related news (from last week), Tony Blair eventually capitulated to demands to carbon-offset his personal flights too.
