Carbon Credits and Offsetting: Navigating Legal Frameworks, Innovative Solutions, and Controversies

Author(s) Karthik Gupta

Abstract Carbon credits and offsetting have emerged as market-based instruments to mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and address climate change. While hailed as cost-effective mechanisms to drive emissions reductions, these schemes have also faced criticism regarding their environmental integrity, distributional impacts, and ethical implications. This paper provides a comprehensive analysis of the legal and regulatory frameworks governing carbon markets, the controversies surrounding their implementation, and potential avenues for reform. It examines the role of emerging technologies, nature-based solutions, and sector-specific initiatives like aviation offsetting in enhancing carbon accounting and market integrity.

Drawing from international environmental law, economic theory, case studies, and empirical data, the paper evaluates the successes, challenges, and real-world impacts of carbon trading systems. Ultimately, it proposes recommendations for strengthening the effectiveness and equity of carbon markets through legal reforms, policy innovations, technological advancements, and areas for further research.
