Tree Buddying

Guaranteed carbon offsetting

vcslogo.jpgOur Tree Planting projects are paired with Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) approved carbon credits to guarantee the carbon offsetting

This provides robust offsetting, together with all the biodiversity and community benefits that tree planting brings




Tree Buddying Explained

Our UK and Kenya tree planting programme incorporate "Tree Buddying". This means for each tree you pledge, as well as planting a tree, we also offset one tonne of CO2 through a VCS project, which guarantees offsetting one tCO2.

This ensures your carbon offsetting:

  • is fully verified
  • meets international standards - including meeting strict additionality requirements 
  • meets BSI's PAS 2060 specification on carbon neutrality
  • meets the Carbon Footprint Standard and
  • continues to take additional CO2 out of the atmosphere during the life of the tree

in addition to delivering all the other great benefits of the UK Tree and Kenya planting programmes.
