How the carbon volume is calculated for each project?
The volume is calculated using parameters provided by the IPCC
(Intergovernanmental Panel on Climate Change), the leading international body for the assessment of climate change, established by the United Nations (UNEP) and the World Meteorological Organization(WMO). Click here for a detailed description of the calculation methodology for each project.
How do I know if the trees are actually being planted?
To bring security to those who want to participate, we rely on TNC as an independent auditor to assess our tree planting activities. In Fazenda Descalvado and Capoava projects, for example, they will check by sampling that the number of trees planted matches the amount described in our projects. You can also follow our activities in our Carbon Limited Facebook fan page and Instagram
How to know if the same credit will not be sold more than once?
To ensure that we will sell the credits only once, all sales are displayed on the supporters page on our website, where we have the total credits for the project and the amount purchased in each transaction. Furthermore, each person receives a purchase certificate with a unique sequential serial number, thus facilitating any auditing process.
What difference am I doing if these projects have been already implemented?
With your support we can expand the areas of our current projects, as well as implement new projects in new areas, so we can all together contribute for a better world.
How does the calculator works?
The values used in the calculator are based on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, the most widely used international accounting tool to quantify CO2 emissions. In some categories (such as pets), further references were used. We selected recognized references and the best available information on the subject, knowing that these measurements are dynamic and may vary.
Can I tell everyone that I did it?
Yes, tell all, share it and enjoy our facebook page - you will be helping us and the team at Carbon Limited. Thank you for that.
