Carbon offset schemes promise to compensate for the emissions caused by private individuals and companies by donating to emission reduction projects, such as reforestation. But is this just a feel-good solution? Journalists from the Danish newspaper Politiken investigated what sort of carbon credits Danish companies invest in, and found out that many of them were fraudulent. Join us to learn how they did it, and how you can track the carbon credit money too.
Read one of the stories from the investigation: "Russian oligarch made a fortune selling fraudulent climate compensation - now he wants to buy a Formula 1 seat for his son" (PDF version here)
