      Description

      noun
      There is no entry in Termcat for 'carbon offsetting'. They do include 'offsetting' which is 'compensació'. With a Google Catalan search for 'carbon offsetting' I found 'compra de drets d'emissió'. A search for that by itself returned 134 pages so it looks fairly common. Any other suggestions?

      I also looked up 'emissions trading' in Termcat and found nothing. I did, however, find a large number of Catalan sites discussing 'el comerç de drets d'emissió' and 'el comerç d'emissions'. Should we include one of these? Or both?

      A search for 'carbon neutrality' returned nothing. Any ideas?

      Finally, I looked up 'carbon neutral' and found:
      adj.
      neutralitzador -a de carboni

      I could not, however, find any websites containing this expression in Catalan. I am assuming there is another way of saying this which has not been approved by Termcat as 'carbon neutral' is such a buzzword these days it seems to crop up everywhere.

        For now, I have entered:

        emissions trading
        noun (m)
        comerç de drets d'emissió

        carbon trading
        noun
        comerç de drets d'emissió de carboni

        carbon neutral
        adj. (Termcat approved)
        neutralitzador de carboni

        carbon neutrality
        noun (f)
        neutralitat en emissions de carboni

        Of course, as and when Termcat rule on these expressions we will modify them. However, they are so important I don't think we can leave them out altogether until they do so.
