Corporate responsibility strategy and communications consultancy Context has published the world's first guide to carbon offset providers and advisers. Carbon Offset in Context is a free download from Context's website http://www.econtext.co.uk
 
Carbon Offset in Context profiles 23 organisations that offer to offset carbon emissions, or advise on how to do so. In the style of a 'good hotel' guide, details are given for each organisation on their:
 
·        Turnover and total carbon tonnage offset
·        Date founded
·        Services offered
·        Types of offset programme offered
·        Price per tonne of CO2
·        Verification methods
·        Geographic coverage
 
Context gathered the information from providers' websites and all but four later confirmed the accuracy of their profile.
 
Simon Propper, Context's MD said: 'A few years ago when the emerging offset companies were touting trees at rock festivals, we were a little sceptical. But the industry has grown up fast, and trees are now less significant than renewable energy. Offset now merits serious consideration as part of a company's climate strategy.'

Context will also help companies with briefings to their boards on climate change strategy. Contact Simon Propper or Peter Knight on +44 207 251 0050.
