The UK tree planting scheme incorporates tree buddying. This means for each tree pledged, as well as planting a tree, Carbon Footprint will also offset one tonne of CO2 through a VCS project, which guarantees to offset one tCO2. 

This ensures your carbon offsetting:

  • is fully verified
  • meets international standards - including meeting strict additionality requirements 
  • meets BSI's PAS 2060 specification on carbon neutrality
  • meets the Carbon Footprint Standard and
  • continues to take additional CO2 out of the atmosphere during the life of the tree

What is REDD+ ?

Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) is a mechanism to create financial value for the carbon stored in forests. It offers incentives for developing countries to reduce emissions from forested lands and invest in low-carbon paths to sustainable development.

The United Nations created the REDD+ mechanism to quantify and value the carbon storage services that forests provide.
