CERE’s Urban Afforestation Project (UAP) aims to increase the green cover in Indian cities and also help companies, organizations and individuals reduce their carbon footprint. Most importantly, CERE will constantly undertake carbon calculations to determine the carbon sequestration value of the entire program over time.
Carbon Sequestration Certification
As part of the Urban Afforestation Project, CERE also offers a carbon sequestration assessment of both sponsored (part of UAP) and private plantations. Our scientific methodology calculates the sequestration value of any plantation considering both species specificity and the age of trees planted. Sequestration values are calculated as a projection over 5, 10 or 15 years, but our team can also complete in-situ assessments for existing plantations. A CERE Offset certificate is shared with the clients at the end of the plantation and assessment.
