Grow your own carbon units

Why grow your own Carbon Units?

There are an increasing number of landowners or companies who own land and are considering 'growing their own' carbon units by creating forests to compensate for Greenhouse Gas emissions elsewhere on their land holding or business. Getting their project validated and verified to Skógarkolefni quantifies the benefit of this forest creation and provides carbon units to compensate for the estate/business's wider emissions as they grow.

Carbon units can only be used once – if you use them against your own emissions, you can't sell them to a third party. It is possible to use a proportion and sell a proportion of the units generated.

Companies/ Landowners who are 'growing their own'

Following companies own land and have invested in afforestation projects to generate their own supply of carbon units to use against their emissions in future.
