4.7 Insetting

Insetting is a specific application of offsetting when emission reduction projects are sited within a corporate’s supply chain and sphere of influence. The focus on location-specific mitigation actions enables the corporate to gain multiple benefits, often delivering against both commercial and sustainability objectives. Carbon credits generated from insetting projects may be used for CarbonNeutral certifications only when they are generated in accordance with the Approved Carbon Credit Standards recognized in the CarbonNeutral Protocol (Technical Specification 4.2.1), and are retired in publicly accessible registries.
