A Guide to Offset Projects
How Do These Projects Crucially Cut Emissions?
Humanity BREATHES through its forests. It is second only to oceans in terms of global carbon storage. To live sustainably, we must defend them with all our might.
Humanity is ravaging its woodlands. According to experts, the planet loses 10 million hectares of forests each year. Want a fuller picture of the damage? Ten million hectares is about the size of South Korea.
Every tree counts. Carbon is released into the atmosphere with each cut, burnt, and tarnished sapling. According to statistics, deforestation contributes to 25% of global emissions. And we've already seen its effects on our planet.
Drought. Floods. Rising sea levels. Flora and fauna extinction. It's time for us to take a stand. Natural degradation and instability will continue if governments, businesses, and individuals don't act. We can't afford to continue down this path.
Forest projects battle the climate crisis through tree planting initiatives. The goal? To halt deforestation once and for all.
Saving biodiversity is but one way forest carbon projects help. They also produce sustainable development proposals in poor, low-income, and developing communities across the globe.
There are real-world examples of the latter. Some projects educate low-income communities in forest management, so they preserve trees and keep carbon within each leaf, stem, and branch
