Carbon forestry: 10 years brings more options
Wednesday 18 Nov 2020Why trees really matter in the race to decarbonization - The World Economic Forum says trees are a cost-effective means of carbon removal and storage.
In all the different strategies being implemented, however, natural climate solutions should consistently be part of these sustainability portfolios. For many organizations, the most effective natural climate solution is planting trees.
Why trees? - In addition to rapidly avoiding and reducing emissions, carbon removal and storage are what will ultimately begin to stabilise a changing climate. Natural climate solutions — reforestation in particular — have lately gained tremendous momentum and awareness for this reason.
A proliferation of new global, regional and local tree planting and forest restoration initiatives including the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, the World Economic Forum’s Trillion Trees Platform 1t.org, the Time for Trees initiative and others have been announced in the last few years.
When implemented correctly, trees are currently the most cost-effective and best technology for carbon removal and storage.
