Exciting times for woodland carbon projects

A young woodland in West Lothian, Scotland, has become the first project in the UK to be ‘verified’ as continuing to meet the standards of the Woodland Carbon Code after ‘passing’ its first five-yearly progress inspection. 

UK Woodland Carbon goes on sale for the first time

The first units of carbon dioxide set to be sequestered, or removed from the atmosphere, by woodlands validated under the UK’s Woodland Carbon Code have been notified for sale for the first time as National Climate Week gets under way. 

UK Woodland Carbon Code launched on Markit Environmental Registry

UK Woodland Carbon Code launched on Markit Environmental Registry, enhancing transparency and accountability in the trade in British Woodland Carbon Units.  Carbon dioxide (CO2) sequestered, or absorbed, by WCC-validated woodlands in the UK can be traded, and the development enables changes of ownership of each tonne to be tracked. The registry will also record when projects are registered and credits are listed, and when carbon units have been “used” by a company in its carbon account. 

Group validation scheme opens to all

Creating new woodlands to help combat climate change has been made easier with the launch of a Woodland Carbon Code group validation scheme.  Now open to new applicants, the group scheme allows several tree-planting projects to be validated together, thereby making possible potentially significant cost savings.
