At SilviCarbon we help to mobilise large scale funding to establish tree plantations that remove and store carbon at scale and provide resources for new bio-based economies that will continue do so sustainably.

Afforestation of tree plantations is the most economically feasible, scalable method of removing carbon. It creates significant, tangible socio-environmental benefits.

It is very exciting to be at the forefront of one of the main developments within the global climate change discussion.

Paraguay is set to become a major carbon player at the global scale due to the vast areas of degraded lands in combination with the most advanced carbon regulations.

In Laos, carbon-forestry projects are a very effective approach to countering poverty and preventing natural landscape loss. These projects could offer Laos the best way out of its LDC status.
