11/10/2019 - Nicolas de Reforest'Action
Since companies contact us to act in the field of carbon offsetting, it is important for Reforest'Action to share its views on this practice. We are publishing a position statement with this in mind.
In July 2019, a study revealed that the world could move towards a global warming of +7°C by 2100 if nothing changes. These projections are a long way from the Paris Agreement's goal of containing global warming to no more than 2 degrees by the end of the century.
Thus, business action on climate change has never been more urgently needed. At the same time, the forest is becoming more and more a solution favoured by many players, particularly in terms of carbon strategy and the fight against climate change.
Given this context, as a specialist in reforestation in France and around the world, and as a key player in carbon offsetting, Reforest'Action is publishing a standpoint note on the subject. Here are the key points:
- The reduction of CO2 emissions is the priority of each and every one of us - governments, companies and individuals.
- Carbon offsetting is just one step in the carbon strategy that makes reduction its cornerstone.
- Forests and reforestation are a relevant carbon offset solution that provides many co-benefits.
- There is no point in planting trees to offset one's carbon footprint if it is not reduced beforehand and on a continuous basis.
