Helping your business reach net zero through UK nature-based solutions

About this event

Has your business considered creating new woodlands to capture your residual carbon emissions and realise your net zero targets? Would you like to understand nature-based solutions more clearly?

If so, this webinar will be a valuable help for you. David McCulloch and Alex MacKinnon from CarbonStore, a leading company in the market for UK woodland carbon, will guide you through the process for purchasing woodland carbon credits and the steps involved.

They will explain why woodland-based carbon offsetting projects - which are regulated and authorised by the Woodland Carbon Code - have such a strong reputation, why they are endorsed by ICROA and how they ensure the highest standards of carbon mitigation.

Finally, using a live case study, they will demonstrate how your company, by harnessing nature-based solutions, can simultaneously mitigate your carbon emissions, enhance our nature and biodiversity, generate significant benefits for local communities and engage your customers and colleagues in trees, nature and wildlife.

Speakers include:

Chair: Stuart Pearson, Business Development Director for Tilhill and a Chartered Forester

Alex MacKinnon, Carbon Project Manager at CarbonStore: Alex will outline the core principles of carbon offsetting which the Woodland Carbon Code adheres to.

David McCulloch Head of CarbonStore: David will explain the steps to buy carbon credits and present a case study to explain how nature-based solutions work in practice.

The event will include a live Q&A session.
