The difference between traditional carbon offsets and carbon removal solutions can be challenging to navigate. Traditional carbon offsets are a way to reduce emissions, enabling companies to prevent more CO₂ from entering the atmosphere. In contrast, carbon removal solutions refer to removing existing CO₂ from the atmosphere, which enables a company to actively remove its unavoidable and historic emissions to reach net zero.
