Today, there are three forestry options available for verified carbon credits: afforestation/reforestation, improved forest management, and avoided conversion. Below are more specific opportunities for you to weave tree-based carbon reduction into your sustainability plan.
Creating forests on land that was previously un-forested.
Restoring forests on land that was once forested.
Preventing the loss of existing forests to nonforest use by protecting or enhancing the forest cover.
Improved Forest Management
Quantifying the greenhouse gas removals generated from preventing logging of forests that would have been logged in the absence of purchasing the forestry carbon credit.
Using blockchain technology to give consumers the option to offset the carbon lifecycle for a product and/or the shipping footprint when using e-commerce.
Making direct investments in an organization’s supply chain to boost resiliency and minimize disruption with verified emissions reductions and other Shared Benefits.
Urban Forestry Carbon Credits
Receiving carbon credits and other quantified benefits (stormwater runoff, energy savings, etc.) for urban tree planting while helping cities fund investments in healthy urban tree canopies.
Carbon + Trees
With our partners, we are looking at new project models to scale up the size of forestry projects by combining verified carbon credits and additional tree planting.
Carbon stored in coastal and marine ecosystems like mangroves and seaside wetlands.
