The Relevance and Legitimacy of Carbon Offsetting in Local Government

This publication is written for local authority officers and councillors to help to inform you about carbon offsetting and it’s relevance and legitimacy in local authority climate change work.   

Offsetting has become a major area of interest for local authorities across the country. However, in some circles it is mired in controversy and there is widespread misunderstanding of its legitimacy and also the role that it could properly play in local authority decarbonisation plans.

This report seeks to thoroughly examine offsetting and give guidance to local government about the role it should play in their efforts over the coming decades to reach a position of net zero.

This publication is available to APSE Energy members without charge. All energy members will have received the password. Please contact Charlotte Banks at cbanks@apse.org.uk if you'd like to be resent the password.
