Offsetting your carbon footprint through tree planting and management is THE most powerful thing we can all do right now, without waiting for government or industry to catch up. A simple action with a big impact. The restoration of forest trees remains among the most effective strategies for climate change mitigation. A worldwide planting programme could remove two-thirds of all the emissions from human activities that remain in the atmosphere today.
Drawdown Co is collective of social enterprises and excellent humans that are all about positive action to reduce carbon in the atmosphere. We’re empowering people and organisations to take positive action in the pursuit of a more sustainable planet.
Tree02 primarily operates in Timor Leste, with additional projects running in Australia. We are looking to expand our carbon capture projects to globally in the near future.
Tree02 works with Gold Standard to quantify the total amount of carbon sequestered across small-holder farms. Gold Standard sends out an independent monitor to ensure farms meet a specific set of criteria for certifying carbon credits. Once Gold Standard has verified the amount of carbon sequestered they will calculate the equivalent carbon credits. Tree02 can then go to market with their certified carbon credits.
