Plan ahead for your long-term climate strategy

This major solution involves financing the development of new plantation-based forest carbon sequestration projects that are designed to generate carbon credits over an average period of up to 30 years.

Added value for the company:

Accommodates an ambitious long-term strategy
Safeguards the price and volume of carbon credits over time
Be a project stakeholder and follow development closely

Projects promoting forest multifunctionality

While the carbon objective is a prerequisite, it must not be an end to itself. Carbon projects developed by Reforest'Action combine the carbon impact with the promotion of biodiversity and the co-benefits for local populations, which we consider to be an integral part of an ecosystem’s stability.

Labels and Certifications

All our projects are rigorously selected in accordance with best international practices.

Verified Carbon Standard
One of the most recognized international standards, VCS certifies that carbon credits comply with essential quality criteria (additionality, measurability, etc.).
Climate, Community & Biodiversity Standard
Standard that certifies that land use produces both real and significant benefits for the climate, biodiversity and local communities.
GS4GG
High credibility global standard that aims at climate security and sustainable development for all, focusing on fairness, reliability, conservativeness and pragmatism.
CAR
As a pioneer in carbon accounting, this standard serves as an experienced offset registry for global carbon markets, supporting environmental and community co-benefits derived by high-quality offset projects.

Priority is given to ARR, ALM or WRC projects.

We focus our efforts on developing ARR, ALM and WRC projects. Developing these projects takes longer, is more complex and more expensive but has the advantage of demonstrating more concretely the benefits generated in terms of carbon storage. These are not avoided emissions but concrete storage that would not have been effective without plantation.

A carbon project’s development phases

PROJECT QUALIFICATION

2 weeks

Objectives: Check that the project complies with Reforest'Action’s specifications and deliver an initial project description.

OPPORTUNITY STUDY

2 to 4 weeks

Objectives: Complete due diligence, specify the potential eligible surface area and issue a first carbon sequestration estimate.

FEASIBILITY STUDY

3 to 5 months

Objectives: Design the project by specifying standards, methodologies, key certification and monitoring elements including financial modeling.

PROJECT PREPARATION

6 to 9 months

Objectives: Refine preliminary analyses, consult with local stakeholders, prepare the PPDs, implement the project and training locally.

PROJECT IMPLEMENTATION

Up to 30 years

Objectives: Monitoring phase (on site and remote via satellite) by Reforest'Action and project validation, verification and issue of carbon credits every 5 years by third-party organizations.
