Carbon offsetting is a widespread tool in efforts to achieve net zero emissions. But current approaches to offsetting are unlikely to deliver the types of offsets needed to achieve global climate goals. Net zero pledges from many companies, such as those recently from BP and Google, and the recent 2060 "carbon neutrality" pledge from China are likely to use offsets. But what types of offsets are acceptable and under what conditions should they be used? Launched today, The Oxford Principles for Net Zero Aligned Carbon Offsetting (or 'The Oxford Offsetting Principles '), provide guidelines to help ensure offsetting actually helps to achieve a net zero society.

A team of mathematical modellers and epidemiologists at Oxford University's Nuffield Department of Medicine release the latest model of a population responding to the coronavirus epidemic. The model - OpenABM-Covid19 - provides public health decision-makers with the ability to review the potential progression and outcome of the coronavirus, including fluctuations in infected individuals, hospitalisations, intensive care unit (ICU) admissions and deaths, and assess the impact of test and trace programmes.
