Cambridge Centre for Carbon Credits (4C)


The University of Cambridge's annual sustainability report for last year is now available online here, and provides details of the University's efforts towards reducing our collective impact on the planet.  4C has been working closely with the University towards a common understanding of when and where offsets should be used. To quote the report (page 34):

For certain elements of unavoidable scope 3 emissions, the University may utilise carbon credits, informed by the work of 4C.

You can find many of the recent scholarly outputs from 4C on our publications page, with recent highlights this year including:
