New technology could turn CO2 waste emissions into useful materials

A new technology has been developed by engineers from UNSW to help convert CO2 waste emissions into chemical building blocks to make products like plastics and fuels.

How carbon offsetting fits into a decarbonisation strategy

Alex Massies, Principal Consultant and George Beechener, Offsetting Specialist, explain why they think carbon offsets have an important role to play in the transition to a low carbon economy and why organisations should be mindful when buying them.
