Carbon credits, also known as carbon offsets, are tradable units that represent a reduction or removal of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the atmosphere. They are used as a tool to mitigate climate change by enabling individuals, organizations, and governments to take responsibility for their emissions and support emission reduction projects.

Buyers, such as companies, governments, or individuals, purchase carbon credits to offset their own emissions and meet their sustainability goals. The carbon credits are transferred from the seller to the buyer, often facilitated through specialized platforms or exchanges. Carbon credits help the companies to minimize their greenhouse gas emissions.

Carbon credits are generated through projects that reduce or remove greenhouse gas emissions. These projects can include renewable energy installations, energy efficiency improvements, methane capture from landfills or agricultural operations, reforestation and afforestation initiatives, and other activities that lead to a decrease in GHG emissions.

Carbon credits work on the principle of "offsetting" emissions. When an entity, such as a company or individual, emits carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases, they can purchase carbon credits equivalent to the amount of emissions they have produced. The money from the purchase goes towards funding emission reduction projects. By buying and retiring these credits, the entity is effectively offsetting their own emissions by supporting projects that reduce emissions elsewhere.

Emission reduction projects often deliver co-benefits beyond GHG reductions. For example, renewable energy projects contribute to the transition to clean energy sources, create jobs, and improve air quality. Reforestation initiatives enhance biodiversity and provide ecosystem services. Sustainable development principles are often integrated into the design and implementation of emission reduction projects to ensure they promote social, economic, and environmental benefits.

In order to meet the net-zero carbon emissions, it is necessary to lower greenhouse gas emissions to almost 50% by 2030 and to reduce to net zero by 200. Thus, purchasing carbon credits can help in addressing huge amount of greenhouse gas emissions.

Carbon credits are basically the certificates that represents the amount of greenhouse gases removed from the atmosphere.
