As the world moves toward net zero targets, companies are putting considerable effort and capital into decarbonization. Climate change usually requires a complete economic shift. The demand for carbon credits will significantly grow in the coming decades as the companies are focused on net zero targets and are working toward reducing carbon emissions. A carbon credit represents the right to emit greenhouse gases equivalent to one ton of carbon dioxide. Several businesses are now adopting this technique of partially using carbon credits, which is benefitting them significantly. They are getting involved in projects and activities that are helping them generate offsets. They use as many credits as they want according to the limit set for a project and if they have a few left, they are used later for another project. This not only helps them save a significant amount of money, which can aid them in investing in more such credits in the future when required. Hence, these factors help in driving the market for carbon offset/credits.
