Once you understand your carbon impact, you can create a comprehensive climate strategy
that is both effective and profitable for your business. That means far more than offsetting emissions
by planting trees. It’s about putting effective measures
in place and creating a carbon manifesto
that actively reduces your company’s carbon emissions. You can read EcoTree’s own manifesto to learn our own approach.
We can help you develop a strategy that focuses as much on reducing greenhouse gas emissions
as on restoring and developing carbon sinks through sustainable forestry. That's why we talk about ecological or environmental contributions rather than voluntary carbon offsets
. By investing in EcoTree forests, you help capture carbon and support local forest planting and management projects.
Forests are an incredible, natural carbon sink because trees absorb large amounts of CO2
. Wetlands are also important carbon sinks and our biodiversity projects are working to maintain forest ponds and restore peat bogs
. Forests contain many ecosystems and all have a role to play in carbon capture. That's why at EcoTree, we carry out a diverse range of work – we know each forest is more than the sum of its trees.
Working with us on your environmental policy and Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) can also have a positive impact on your team
. Current employees and younger people who are new to work feel stronger than ever about the world's social and environmental
challenges. They expect corporate and social responsibility (CSR)
to be at the heart of your company and that's where EcoTree can play a vital role.
