Buying Carbon Offsets

Carbon offsets are not all created equal. If you’re buying carbon units to offset your emissions, it’s important to question their source and ensure they align with your values.

About

Robust & Tracable

Each CCU comes with a location and a unique ID, which can be cross referenced against CarbonCrop’s systems to provide full details of the area of forest, so buyers can be confident in the origins of their offsets, and perform any necessary audits.

100% Native Species

Native CarbonCrop Units are only issued for qualifying carbon sequestration by native tree species.

If detected, exotic species are excluded from the carbon calculations, which discourages wilding pines and incentivises landholders to actively support and protect natives.

Transparent & Auditable

CarbonCrop publicises its methodology, as well as the underlying data that informs the sequestration model and credit issuance. Its certification process is informed by existing best-in-class methodologies and stands up to independent audit.

 

Buyers choose Native CarbonCrop Units to help support biodiversity and native reforestation across Aotearoa.

 

Better Forests. Better Offsets.
