Google to Purchase 300,000 Carbon Offsets

In a step toward becoming a carbon-neutral company, Google has agreed to purchase 300,000 carbon credits. The credits will come from an offset project located in South Carolina, and will be registered on the Climate Action Reserve (CAR) registry.

Carbon industry insiders hope the project catches the eyes of federal lawmakers and encourages the market as a true example of what is being done to mitigate climate change
