Both avoidance and removal carbon credits are essential to combat climate change. Avoidance credits help to speed up the transition to a low-carbon society, while removal projects are crucial to reduce the existing amount of CO2 in the atmosphere.
According to the IPCC, both mechanisms are critical to maintaining a sustainable world, and we must increase our investments in decarbonization six-fold to stay on track with the Paris Agreement's 2°C trajectory.
Whether to purchase avoidance, removal, or both types of carbon credits ultimately depends on the buyer's individual circumstances and preferences.
