The Cabinet Office is currently investigating a baseline estimate for carbon emissions for the G7 Summit. We are committed to ensuring that as much as is practical will be offset in Cornwall. We are also in discussions with partners across Cornwall to consider plans on how to apply those offsets for example looking at biodiversity recovery, sustainable travel, tree planting and other options.
