Forestry & Conservation as a nature-based solution to climate change


Introducing Forward Financing of Climate Carbon Projects

Beyond their role in absorbing carbon, forests serve as vital carbon reservoirs. The carbon contained within forest biomass, encompassing tree trunks and roots among other components, functions as a reservoir effectively sequestering significant quantities of carbon that might otherwise contribute to atmospheric CO2 levels. Recognizing the dual function of forests in both carbon absorption and storage highlights their indispensable role in mitigating climate change.

Forests rely on carbon dioxide (CO2), a greenhouse gas, for their growth, trapping it within their timber. This characteristic turns forests into carbon sinks, storing carbon when their growth outpaces utilization. Consequently, they play a crucial role in reducing the CO2 levels in the atmosphere on a global scale. Currently, approximately 1,169 million tonnes of carbon are sequestered in living trees and deadwood combined. This amounts to around 105 tonnes of carbon per hectare within both aboveground and belowground biomass, excluding the litter layer and mineral soil.
