What is carbon offset?

Forestation and carbon offset

more trees has a mission to spread the concept and action of "carbon offset" by afforestation / forestation together with various mechanisms based on the amount of CO2 absorbed by forestation.

* What is carbon offset?
Carbon offset means introducing forests and natural energy in order to offset the carbon dioxide (carbon) emitted by our human activities.

mt mark

A logo that proves that carbon has been offset by the participation of more trees in forest development. There is value in using this logo itself, as it can only be used when carbon neutral (zero) is achieved. A brand identity of more trees that applies to both companies and individuals.

Four categories of moretrees forest development
We will launch concrete projects in the following four categories.

1. Reforestation of Japan <JAPAN FOR EST>
From forest maintenance to the use of thinned wood. Signed an agreement with each prefecture.

2. Regeneration of tropical forest <TROPICAL FOR EST>
Afforestation of tropical forests and rainforests. Indonesia, Philippines, Vietnam etc.

3. Desert Greening <DESERT GREEN>
We are developing a project in China etc. to restore the deserted land to green.

4. Regeneration of "Sea Forest" <SEA FOR EST>
Mainly planting mangroves in Fiji and the South Pacific islands.


About calculation of discharge
When the carbon offset was first introduced, an environmental load unit data book (3EID) based on an input-output table
Emissions were calculated using inventory analysis using (IO-LCA).
3EID is an easy method because it can calculate the emission amount by comparing the item and the price of the generation, but
Even if the bindings are the same, it is perceived that the emission amount will be different if the price of the first generation is different,
Another feature is that the higher the price of the first generation, the greater the amount of emissions.
Therefore, after the work released on September 24, 2008, the CO2 emissions of each process are reduced.
The calculation is based on the LCA (life cycle assessment) method.
Also, regarding the applicable emission factors and calculation formulas,
We refer to the Greenhouse Gas Emissions Calculation and Reporting Manual of the Ministry of the Environment.
commmons, we always try to calculate emissions according to actual conditions.
