Offsetting carbon is the process of figuring out the carbon footprint of a production, and then offsetting it with a carbon offset producer. What this means is that a company will plant enough trees, repopulate a wet land, etc., to produce enough oxygen to neutralize that harmful aspect of a productions environmental footprint. There are many offset companies, we vet them for our clients, and achieve cost savings as we have relationships with the most cost effective and ethical proven offset companies.
