TREES was founded in 2009 to drive innovations in sustainable farming and forestry practices to combat climate change and strengthen resilience.
TREES work include comprehensive, sustainable land use change solutions covering strategies for greenhouse gas reduction and sustainability, carbon credit programs including GHG accounting methodology development, scope 3 value chain activities as well as SDG impact accounting.
The corporate supply chain (scope 3) accounting approach allows companies to assess their entire supply chain emissions impact and identify where to focus GHG reduction activities.
Soil carbon (SOC) is recognized as the largest store of terrestrial carbon. Globally, its storage capacity is much larger than the pools of carbon in the atmosphere and vegetation.
SDGs provide a framework to add transparency and accountability and make corporate sustainability programs and reporting tangible.
Carbon offset schemes allow individuals and corporates to invest in environmental projects around the world in order to balance out their own carbon footprints.
Monitoring Reporting and Verification (MRV) enhances transparency through the tracking of GHG emission levels, climate finance flows and/or impact of mitigation actions.
Independent Certification Standards increase transparency and certify the impact of climate actions. Through their quantification and governance systems, mitigation activities become tangible and credible.
TREES supports organizations in the design, certification, and implementation of land use and forestry greenhouse gas (GHG) offsetting projects and programs producing tradable carbon credits:
