FAQs

How does Forest Carbon ensure that the projects deliver emissions reductions?

All our woodland and peatland projects are certified under the Woodland Carbon Code & Peatland Code. These are UK specific standards that ensure each carbon credit generated represents a removal or avoidance of one tonne of CO2.

Under the WCC & PC projects are validated by a third party certification body, following completion of planting (woodlands) or restoration work (peatland), and verified on an ongoing basis.

The WCC & PC also ensure that each project meets the core principles of carbon offsetting – additionality, conservatism, and permanence. This means that each carbon credit represents a permanent removal of CO2e which would not have happened without the carbon finance.

What do I get when I buy carbon through Forest Carbon?

When you support our woodlands and peatlands, you can be certain that your investment has made a difference. We provide finance at the outset of projects, overcoming financial hurdles and providing liquidity to unlock nature based solutions.

Our projects are certified, validated and verified, under the Woodland Carbon Code & Peatland Cod and offering assurance that the projects are delivering positive, quantifiable, climate outcomes.

With 15 years’ experience in the field we’re also able to offer a smooth experience, with solutions tailored to your business needs.

How does the Forest Carbon offering differ from others?

We work closely with forest management businesses across the UK and make carbon finance accessible to a wide range of projects. Not only does this extend our reach to projects that most need carbon finance, but our varied project portfolio allows us to offer a bespoke service to businesses of all sizes.

We are also the only project developer that can currently offer carbon from peatland projects, validated under the Peatland Code.

Where our
projects are

Forest Carbon leads the way in developing woodland creation and peatland restoration projects for carbon capture and ecosystem services in the UK. We have planted over 10 million new trees in 200+ new woodlands since 2006 with our partners removing over 2 million tonnes of CO2e from the atmosphere, as well as providing a host of other benefits to society, including habitat creation, biodiversity support, flood mitigation, river ecosystem improvement and public access.

Our new woodland schemes spread across Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland. They are certified by the Woodland Carbon Code – which is supported by the UK government and internationally recognised by ICROA. Planting the ‘right tree in the right place’ is required though adherence to the Forestry Commission standards.

Our peatland schemes can be found in Scotland and Wales. They are certified by the Peatland Code which is supported by the IUCN. These certification codes assure the additionality and permanence of each tonne of carbon stored.
