Review on The voluntary carbon credit

A carbon credit is a permit or certificate representing the right to emit one tonne of carbon dioxide. In other words, a carbon credit is a permit that allows the holder to emit one tonne of carbon dioxide simply because the seller (country or enterprise) has made an effort to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by one tonne.

Carbon credits are becoming increasingly popular in the fight against climate change and the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The volume of trading in carbon credits is increasing, so much so that many analysts believe carbon credits will become the worlds single biggest commodity group within the next decade.

The "0" (zero) carbon credit level would be the ideal way to go ...
Unfortunately, the only one regulating the carbon emissions and trying to keep the fragile balance at its best ... is Mother Nature. As long we volunteer in an honest, responsible and committed way there is hope for some some green light :o)
Nevetheless, Botanoo is doing a great job.
