NET ZERO STRATEGY

Enhance your brand reputation by planting trees and saving lives

Nature Based Solutions

Reforestation and conservation are critical components in the fight against climate change. In collaboration with our tree planting partner Eden Projects, we help to reduce extreme poverty and restore healthy forests. We achieve this by employing local people across eight different countries to plant millions of trees every year. 

Carbon Offsetting Projects

If you’re looking to purchase carbon credits, we typically offer a range of 45-50 projects across 25 countries. All our projects are certified by leading bodies such as the Verified Carbon Standard or Gold Standard. In addition, we track all carbon credit purchases using Blockchain technology to ensure complete traceability. 

Making a Positive Difference

At Positive Planet, we exist to tackle climate change and improve lives.  We measure our impact using the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which address global challenges, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace, and justice. All our offsetting activity supports a minimum of seven UN SDG’s with most fulfilling at least nine. 

We Are Currently Losing One Acre Of Tropical Rainforest Almost Every Second

Deforestation is a global problem caused by several factors. These range from large scale land clearing by international corporations, unsustainable agriculture to daily community forest destruction.

The people most impacted by deforestation often live in underdeveloped areas, in conditions of extreme hardship. With few options to support their families, communities are often forced to destroy their local environment to survive, such as cutting down trees for construction, fuel, heat, and agricultural purposes.

The impact of deforestation is dramatic because it causes severe flooding, erosion, and desertification. The long-term effects of deforestation lead to even worse environmental devastation

Maximum Impact For Your Money

We believe that the money our clients spend on offsetting and tree planting should be spent on environmental solutions, not squandered on admin fees. We don’t make a profit from purchasing carbon credits or tree planting on your behalf. Carbon credit purchases may be subject to a transaction fee, which is often mitigated by bulk purchasing discounts.

More Than Carbon Capture

Trees do more than capture carbon. they also help fight the side effects of a changing climate, such as:

  • Prevent flooding
  • Reduce city temperature
  • Reduce pollution
  • Keep soil nutrient-rich
  • Prevent erosion
  • Support biodiversity and wildlife
  • Support local economies and create jobs
