What are Carbon Credits?

Reduce your carbon footprint - Invest in carbon credits

In the  carbon emissions market, individuals and corporations purchase carbon credits so they can lower their carbon footprint, or the total amount of carbon emissions that result from their activities. Carbon offsets can limit the environmental damage caused by carbon emissions-producing activities like using electricity, driving a car or traveling by air.

Larger companies and other entities may be required by law to purchase carbon credits in order to emit greenhouse gases This 'compliance market' of carbon offsets is based on the sets a limit on the amount of pollution a company is allowed to emit within a period of time.  If the company stays under the limit, it can sell the remainder of its carbon credits to other companies.  The carbon trading market is growing very rapidly, and some observers believe it may become one of the largest investable markets in the world by 2020.
