With time running out to avoid the most serious impacts of climate change, corporate climate commitments to go net zero are accelerating. Given many companies are not equipped with the finances or technology to immediately cut greenhouse gas emissions today, carbon offsets have emerged as a key tool in achieving aggressive climate commitments. Based on discussions within the Los Angeles Sustainability Executives Roundtable (LASER), it’s clear Los Angeles companies are interested in carbon offsets, but a knowledge gap remains in the diverse array of offset options available to companies. In collaboration with Adec Innovations, we created a carbon offset playbook which explores the fundamentals of carbon offsets, offset projects, offset programs, and offset co-benefits, honing in specifically on the greater Los Angeles region. Recognizing many companies are also interested in investing in local offset projects that benefit LA communities and ecosystems, our playbook also explores challenges and opportunities to expand local offset options in the LA region.
Join The Los Angeles Sustainability Executives Roundtable (LASER) and USGBC-LA for a panel discussion to dive deeper into the topic of carbon offsets and how to expand local carbon offset options in innovative and collaborative ways. The expert panel will be followed by breakout Q & A session.
