Our Partners

Voluntary woodland carbon capture can relate to all or part of an organisation’s carbon  footprint - below are some examples of what some of our partners have done.

Carbon capture can be done in a variety of ways: for example on behalf of your customers (e.g. BWOC's fuel cards come pre-loaded with CO2 capture for their holder's annual driving emissions), or just to take care of your own operational footprint  (e.g. as in the case of sofa.com - taking care of office, supply chain and delivery emissions).
