IS YOUR COMPANY TRYING TO OFFSET ITS EMISSIONS?
Planting a forest is a great way to guarantee your ability to offset emissions now and well into the future at a fixed rate. Most businesses looking to reduce their carbon footprint use carbon credits as a way to achieve their emissions reduction goals. Planting and maintaining forests can generate carbon credits as the trees grow and pull carbon out of the atmosphere. By funding carbon credit projects, corporations are able to lock in a fixed price per credit.
WHAT IS A CARBON CREDIT?
a tradable certificate or permit representing one tonne of sequestered carbon from a verified carbon project
used by businesses to offset emissions
helps businesses reduce their carbon footprints
FOREST CARBON PROJECTS
TREES. Trees absorb CO2 and store the carbon in their woody biomass and release the oxygen back in the form of purified air thereby removing carbon from the atmosphere.
Various carbon credit registries exist for the purpose of tracking projects and ensuring their compliance with rigorous standards for generating offset credits.
CREDIT ISSUANCE The registries issue offset credits and record their use when they are sold and or retired.
HRI works directly with the registries to ensure that our projects are compliant and result in the successful generation of offset credits.
