Forests are much more than just timber and carbon. “A narrow focus on the role of forests as carbon sinks at the expense of other forest values would be unsustainable”. Reforestation and the protection of remaining forests are vital for climate change mitigation. Forestry projects have a number of characteristics that make them ill-suited for use as carbon offsets. We at Ecolance have a team of forestry experts with immense auditing experience and technical knowledge in forestry programs under various Greenhouse Gas (GHG) schemes like CDM, GS, Voluntary Carbon Standards (VCS), Climate Community and Biodiversity (CCB), Reducing emissions from deforestation and forest dedgradation (REDD) and Blue Carbon (mangroves) projects etc.
