CERE coordinates with stakeholders for the tree plantations and undertakes carbon sequestration calculations at each site.
Land owners provide the land for planting trees, and maintain the trees for a period of 3 years, sending regular updates to CERE.
Sponsors provide funding for the plantation and maintenance of saplings for a period of 3 years. UAP can be a CSR project.
CERE sources 2-4 years old, well-rooted saplings of only indigenous / native tree saplings from local tree providers.
CERE collaborates with other non-profit organisations for effective implementation of the plantation drives.
CERE works with communities in and around the plantation sites to better understand the needs of the local people.
Planting where it counts . . . Our Impacts
CERE's Urban Afforestation Project (UAP) aims to increase the green cover in Indian cities by helping companies, organisations, and individuals reduce their carbon footprint. CERE calculates the amount of carbon sequestered at each plantation site. Our scientific methodology for undertaking carbon sequestration assessments takes into consideration species type, age of saplings and projected growth rates. Sequestration values are calculated as projections over 5, 10, or 15 years. CERE offers carbon sequestration assessments for both sponsored and private plantations. Carbon Sequestration Certification is an integral part of the program and clients are provided with a CERE Offset Certificate at the end of the plantation and assessment.
