UK Fuels projects

Working together with partners globally we are able to bring international offset projects to UK Fuels and their customers. These projects are subject to the same high standard of quality assurance we have here in the UK, using one or more of the Gold Standard, the Verified Carbon Standard and the Climate, Community and Biodiversity Alliance Standard. Credits are issued and retired publicly, to provide partners and their stakeholders with transparency. 

International credits have the added benefit of offering immediate term carbon neutrality, as they arise from projects which are mature enough to have carbon savings underway. 

Currently we have projects in India, China and Turkey, but this will change over time as our programme evolves. See below for some further information on our hydro power project in India. 

Baspa, Northern India

The purpose of the project activity is to generate power using renewable hydro energy. The generated electricity is being exported to the regional grid system which is under the purview of the Indian grid, dominated otherwise by mainly fossil fuel fired power plants. The Baspa project is a run-of-the-river hydro-electric power plant with an installed capacity of 300 MW. The diversion barrage of the project is located across river Baspa, at Kuppa in Himachal Pradesh. The power house is located at Karcham village in Kinnaur District.

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.
