Exploring the role of carbon offsets in 27 minutes

As part of a new multimedia channel launch, we sit down with climate experts at GSK and the UCL Centre for Sustainable Business to explore corporate approaches to offsetting and whether it is an essential part of net-zero strategies.

At the edie 24 event in London last month, our award-winning editorial team hosted a series of punchy decisions intended to enlighten and inform audiences on the most complex and hotly debated topics in corporate sustainability.

In this discussion, edie’s editor Matt Mace sits down with, Adele Cheli Partnerships & Strategy Director, GSK, and, Professor Paolo Taticchi, Professor in Strategy and Sustainability & Co-director UCL Centre for Sustainable Business to explore how the landscape and public perceptions on carbon offsetting are both changing.

The discussion explores whether there is a right way for businesses to offset, and what the alternatives are.
