How to achieve “Carbon neutral”?


Carbon neutral was the New Oxford American Dictionary‘s word of the year in 2006 – and since then, has been catapulted into the mainstream world. By definition, carbon-neutral (or carbon neutrality) is the balance between emitting carbon and absorbing carbon emissions from carbon sinks. Or simply, elimination all carbon emissions altogether. Carbon sinks are any systems that absorb more carbon than they emit, such as forests, soils and oceans.

It is impossible to generate zero-carbon emissions; therefore, offsetting is a viable approach to become carbon-neutral. However, how do we do that?

Original articles on Carbon Neutral related ecological research are welcome to be submitted to our journal.

Once your paper is accepted, it will be published free. The deadline for submission is November 30, 2021.
