Forestry Commission launches Woodland Carbon Code

Forestry Commission launches Woodland Carbon Code
The Forestry Commission has launched a new Woodland Carbon Code, intended to offer clarity to those investing in tree planting projects.

Under the code, which businesses are being urged to back, projects must be sustainably managed to national standards, use set methods for calculating the CO2 they will capture and be independently certified.

All providers of tree planting projects intended for carbon capture are required to register with the Forestry Commission, stating both their location and long-term aims. Approved projects will be placed on a national register accessible via the internet.

Forestry Commission chair Pam Warhurst described such initiatives as offering a "win, win situation".

"We now have the means to capitalise on some very significant funding opportunities and attract very welcome new woods and forests for everyone's benefit," she added.

Earlier this year, the Forestry Commission launched a new scheme which will allow Scottish communities to receive cash from wind turbines installed on forest land as part of its support to help the UK move towards a lower carbon economy. ADNFCR-1235-ID-800637652-ADNFCR
