Carbon Offsetting

We’re fortunate that we have contributors scattered across the world who are able to report in situ, but some travel is inevitable in order to cover the stories and often by plane, one of the biggest carbon emitters. As well as offsetting all the paper used for each issue through the Carbon Balance Paper scheme, in partnership with the World Land Trust, we are now offsetting our contributors’ flights with ClimateCare.

Here’s the calculation for this issue:
