Mitigating and adapting to climate change requires many solutions. An important one is to manage our land much better, most notably our forests and farmlands.
For this, we need to do many things at the same time – to rebuild degraded and idle forest areas; stop deforestation and establish alternative ways to use forests without clearing them; build forests where trees can be harvested rather soon to produce timber and income; and to manage forests smartly, sustainably wherever they exist.
We understand that many companies wish to invest in one single forestry project – one narrative they can best associate with that fits their corporate needs. But we have also learnt that some companies wish to promote several efforts to safeguard forest ecosystems since they believe that all approaches are necessary.
For them, we have created CO2OL Spectrum – combining various high-quality forest carbon projects in one product. We have selected smallholder reforestation efforts in East Timor, forest conservation project from Brazil and plantation project from Tanzania. CO2OL Spectrum offers everyone a solution who aims to support all important yet different aspects of sustainable land use.
