What is a "Carbon Sink"?

What is a "Carbon Sink"?

A Carbon Sink – like plants, the ocean, and soil, are reservoirs that absorb more carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere than they release. It refers to a process called "carbon sequestration": natural or artificial deposits created where carbon would be stored for various periods depending on the medium. In contrast, a carbon source would be anything releasing more carbon into the atmosphere than it absorbs – burning fossil fuels or volcanic eruptions, for example.

What is a "Carbon Budget"?

What is a "Carbon Budget"?

Like a household budget, climate scientists define the "Carbon budget" as the number of greenhouse gases that can be "spent" - or emitted, considering global warming. Exceeding this threshold could cause global temperatures to reach dangerous levels. Therefore, the carbon budget implies that we must change our activities to meet the predicted favorable scenarios.

Blue Carbon Ecosystems: A “Nature-Based Solution” to fight Climate Change

Blue Carbon Ecosystems: A “Nature-Based Solution” to fight Climate Change

The term “Blue Carbon” refers to the carbon stored in coastal and marine ecosystems, such as seagrasses, salt marshes, mangrove swamps, peatlands, and kelp beds. Blue carbon ecosystems are particularly important for their capacity to store carbon and are considered as a key component of nature-based solutions to climate change. It can also provide many other significant benefits - such as socio-economic benefits, increased biodiversity, or cleaner water. Unfortunately, they are some of the most threatened ecosystems on Earth. 35% of mangroves have disappeared in only 20 years for instance.

Companies can save the Amazon: Stéphane Hallaire's opinion column

The figures are indisputable: deforestation continues to accelerate worldwide, particularly in Brazil, where 20% of the Amazonian forest has already been destroyed. For Stéphane Hallaire, President of Reforest'Action, companies have the extraordinary capacity, interest and historical responsibility to become the main financial backers of global reforestation. He expresses this in this opinion column published in Les Echos, France's leading business daily newspaper, on 5 August 2020.
