Carbon Balanced Certification
Carbon Balanced and Carbon Footprint are terms C-Level introduced globally in 2000. They are now widely used and continue to be at the heart of our business. Carbon Balanced means taking action on your business carbon footprint, and at the same time building new relationships with forests and forest peoples.
How it works: We work out the footprint for 2018 initially, and complete Carbon Balancing through C-Level award winning projects. The company gets balanced certification through a stunning project that is verified for CO2 compensation and is delivered through forest ecosystems with communities at the heart of the process (Plan Vivo Standard project). We then help you share the story…
The quality of projects and the impact achieved is paramount to us. C-Level Carbon Balanced Certification is delivered through community based projects under the global Plan Vivo Standard. The standard certifies projects that enhance ecosystem services and allow communities to quantify carbon sequestration, ecological and livelihood benefits. This means Carbon Balanced business aligns with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s). C-Level takes great care to work with communities who are developing projects on land that they own. The Communities are also at the heart of our business. This is a crucial and unique feature of projects under Plan Vivo. Read more about Plan Vivo here.
