Allstar EcoPoint

Allstar's EcoPoint Programme - turning business’ unavoidable CO2 emissions from fuel into new woodlands. 

As more and more businesses become aware of the need to reduce CO2 emissions  they are faced with the complexity of calculating their emissions, and  cutting them where possible, and then knowing what to do about the  balance. Vehicle emissions are a particular problem across the UK –  accounting for 19% of the country’s total carbon footprint in 2012.

Allstar and Forest Carbon have partnered to create EcoPoint to make it simple for holders of Allstar fuel cards  to contribute to balancing the consequences of their journeys in new certified carbon projects - UK woodlands and global forests. 

Over time these new woodlands will not only capture a vehicle’s carbon dioxide, or avoid equivalent emissions from burning fossil fuels, they will also help to reduce flooding, provide habitats for nature,  capture other atmospheric pollutants, purify rivers, and offer recreational space and employment opportunities.

How does it work?

It couldn’t be simpler.  Allstar collects EcoPoint subscriptions from member companies, as part  of their invoicing process, and uses the funds to support woodland  creation around the UK and forest creation and protection outside the  UK. The new UK woodlands are quality assured by the government’s Woodland Carbon Code.  Projects outside the UK are certified under one of the leading carbon  standards used in the international voluntary carbon market - Verra, Gold Standard or Plan Vivo Carbon credits from these projects are listed on the relevant registries: IHS Markit for the Woodland Carbon Code and Plan Vivo, Verra  and Gold Standard registries for their own projects and credits. 

Members  are also provided with an annual e-certificate to show how many trees  have been planted for them and how much  carbon dioxide they are expected to capture.
