The aim of every Forest Carbon partner is the same - whether they're a small business planting a portion of a woodland, or a FTSE listed company planting the whole thing: they want to enhance Britain's carbon-sinking potential through woodland creation or peatland restoration, and they want to know that everything has been done properly.
Forest Carbon's woodlands are UK government certified: they are backed by the Woodland Carbon Code. This means you can be sure that the right trees were planted, in the right way and in the right numbers; that they'll be managed properly; that they'll be monitored; that, however unlikely, problems will be fixed; that biodiversity and habitat have been respected; that the CO2 number we give you is based on sound science and good risk assessment; and, most importantly, it means that we can guarantee that the trees would not have been planted were it not for our intervention on your behalf.
Forest Carbon's peatland restoration projects are accredited and continually verified by the IUCN-owned Peatland Code. This means you can be sure that the restoration work was done in the right way, with due respect for ground-nesting birds and the vegetation itself. The Peatland Code ensures all our projects will be monitored, managed sensitively and that problems, unlikely though they are, will be fixed. Using the code's metrics means the CO₂e number we give you is both conservative and based on sound science. Most importantly, it means that we can guarantee that the degraded peatland would not have been restored were it not for our intervention on your behalf.
