In 2013, CDP-reporting companies purchased 50.3 million offsets.

This is equivalent to not burning 117 million barrels of oil, or shutting down 13 coal-fired power plants for one year. But it still represents less than 1% of reporting companies’ 2013 emissions not
reduced by other means.

This report explores offsetting from a business perspective, exploring how companies incorporate offsetting into comprehensive carbon management strategies – and how they drive investment in these emissions reductions activities.
