Why are the offsets in developing countries?

Today, the largest amount of carbon dioxide emissions globally come from the combustion of fossil fuels for electricity and heating. In Sweden, we have passed beyond that stage and have a very climate-friendly electricity mix based on hydro, wind, solar, and nuclear power. It is therefore much more effective to install solar cells in developing countries that are still dependent on coal and oil than it is to install them on your own roof in Sweden.

At the same time, climate compensation in developing countries also functions as an effective development aid as it contributes to improved health and the reduction of poverty for the planet’s most vulnerable inhabitants.
