使用自然世界去除碳

President of Natural State Tree Global Inc的首席执行官

在解决气候变化时,我们经常听到需要减少碳排放的必要性,但去除已经在大气中的碳的概念也受到增加的关注。

If we want to maintain a stable climate, both are essential. The cheapest and safest approach to sequestering carbon — the process of capturing and storing carbon from the atmosphere — is through landscape protection and restoration, with a focus on reforestation.

稳定地球

景观保护和恢复提供良好的利益,超越环境恢复,来自当地社区的投资,支持发展中国家的农民,创造支持额外的经济,社会和环境项目的绿色基188bet滚球投注础设施。

Current projections estimate that we need to restore 950 million hectares — roughly the size of the United States — by 2050 if we hope to maintain a stable climate.

自然栖息地对于稳定世界的气候至关重要,确保我们分享了1000万种,我们分享了这个星球,并为世界的人口提供了清洁的水,食品和能源。然而,我们现在已经退化了世界上75%的自然生态系统,并且每年都会失去一个森林面积的希腊的大小。

If this continues, we will not achieve the targets the world’s governments have set to stabilize our climate, resulting in the greatest humanitarian and biological crisis in human history.

Reforestation Offers the Biggest Impact

在碳拆除中,重新造林目前是唯一的主要解决方案,可以商业可行的价格提供社会和环境影响的删除量。188bet滚球投注

For companies seeking to invest in carbon offsets, which will have a sustainable positive impact on the planet, reforestation projects have several key advantages over avoided deforestation projects.

First, they are recognized globally as one the most impactful investments in the fight against climate change. Second, companies can show with evidence a direct contribution of their project to their stakeholders — customers, shareholders, supply chain partners, etc. Third, reforestation carbon credits are viewed as more credible and valuable in the long term than other types of forest credits.

迄今为止,迄今为止,没有市场重新造林。

创造高度可信的碳学分

在过去的20年中,共有252个造林/重新造林项目有资格获得碳信用额。平均项目每年减少低于500公顷。

我们远离引发大规模林恢复碳市场;因此,从未有更多的机会投资于森林恢复。

但这正在发生变化。根据Ecosystem Marketplace,2016年,树木种植项目的偏移量从少于2吨的二氧化碳当量(MTCO2E)增加342%至2018年的8.4 MTCO2E,并分布在世界各地。“

Of course, this is a tiny amount relative to the overall market potential. It represents perhaps 400,000 hectares of reforestation — against a 2050 climate target of 950,000,000 hectares.

美国非营利组织,自然状态identified five barriers preventing reforestation at scale:

  1. 在最需要重新造林的世界领域,缺乏基础设施和实施能力的能力
  2. 无法对项目实施进度进行准确,详细和及时评估的弱势影响测量系统
  3. 复杂和昂贵的碳认证过程
  4. 缺乏直接在大型重新造林项目中投资的机会
  5. 每吨碳的低价格与气候变化和环境退化的真正成本不符188bet滚球投注

Corporate Engagement Is Growing

在过去三年中,企业承诺实现环境可持续性和碳中性飙升。188bet滚球投注全球财富500强公司的130多家公司将承诺归零于2030年或更好。仅2020年,仅2020年,BP,Shell,Microsoft,Apple,Google,Facebook,沃尔玛和其他人承诺花费数十亿美元成为碳零或更好。

Although the largest multinationals are leading the charge, companies of all sizes should consider the impact of carbon accountability on their bottom-line performance and sustainability. The impact of climate change poses serious threats to supply chains in every industry.

More intense regulation of carbon emissions is coming, driven by government commitments to global targets and by consumer demands. The litigation risks over climate change are increasing rapidly, and carbon reductions and removals are opening new opportunities to create competitive advantage in traditional business sectors.

With the billions of dollars that have already been committed to offset carbon emissions, a small number of private sector companies could catalyze a large forest restoration carbon market by investing in impact monitoring technology, helping develop more efficient certification and verification processes and paying enough per ton of carbon to restore and protect the forests.

Alexander Rhodes, head of Mishcon Purpose at international law firm Mishcon de Reya states that “Buying cheap carbon credits may look like a great deal now, but — as with most things — you need to understand what you are paying for. Consumers, investors and regulators are demanding increasingly transparent and accountable net-zero strategies, and this is driving new standards. For most corporates, carbon capture will form a central plank of their strategy, and there is significant risk exposure in not doing your due diligence.”

The Trillion Tree Initiative

Companies that take a longer-term view will note that, although the price per ton of carbon of legitimate forest restoration projects is more expensive than the average price per ton, carbon prices are projected to increase significantly, and high-quality forest carbon credits will soon be a lot more expensive.

作为森林恢复碳信用的早期买方是良好的业务,适合地球。

势头是建设。今年在达沃斯,the Trillion Tree Initiative由世界各地的国家和企业发起。联合国已宣布2021-2030联合国恢复十年。每周,更多的公司都承诺成为碳中性,其中许多是明确关注基于自然的解决方案。

我们远离引发大规模林恢复碳市场。从未有更多的机会或更重要的时间投资森林恢复。低碳经济在这里。两家公司和地球面临的最大风险并没有足够快地移动。
