Carbon Offset Certificates

  1. 1. Carbon Offset CertificatesInformation Supplied By ECO Carbon OffsetsTree Based Carbon OffsetsBy Noel McArdleWe provide our clients with Registered Carbon Offsets which are derived from newly plantedwoodland. They enable our clients to become carbon neutral and offset their carbon footprint.These offsets, also known as carbon credits, represent real biosequestered carbon from theatmosphere. They are not ‘Paper Offsets’ as issued by the Government which have neithersequestered any CO2 from the atmosphere, nor avoided emitting any CO2 emissions. Thisavoids the unproductive situation of merely providing commerce and industry with a ‘permit topollute’.At the end of each Financial Year, we provide each client with a cadastral map showing thegeographical location of their revegetated woodland. Over its lifetime, this woodland will offsetour clients’ carbon emissions. In addition, we supply our clients with a photo history of theforest growth on a year-by-year basis. Organisations may incorporate these into their annualreports, newsletters, blogs or promotional material. In this manner, organisations candemonstrate their climate change credentials.Additional Information on Tree-based Carbon Credits Trees are a proven way of sequestering carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. Theymodify the adverse effects of climate change. ECO, as Carbon Consultants, work with landowners and farmers to plant native woodlandforests that meet Kyoto compliant standards of article 3.3 of the Kyoto Protocol for 1/3
  2. 2. reafforestation. These plantings revegetate marginal or degraded farm land so as to create a carbon sink.These plantations are the basis of ECO’s carbon credits which offset our client’s carbonfootprint. This process is known as carbon farming. All of our plantings are of a bio-diverse nature: This means that in addition to their primarycarbon sequestration purpose, they also restore a bio-diverse mix of native forest consisting ofupper story (trees); middle story (shrubs and bushes) and under story (such as native grasseswhich are eaten by native parrots). In particular, ECO endeavours to link patches of remnant vegetation so as to form landcorridors for native animals. Under the Forest Property Act, this carbon sink is permanently registered, and legallysecured, on the property’s certificate of title, at the Lands Titles Office.To discover more about Tree-based Biosequestered Carbon Offsets, click here…..
