Co-op Promotes Reforestation to Offset CO2 Emissions (Ind. Report)
Coop Carbone
Date: 2018-08-31
In Quebec, the Arbre-Evolution co-op reports it is partnering with Coop Carbone to develop carbon-offsetting projects. Coop Carbone works with enterprises to identify, develop and fund carbon-offsetting projects.

Arbre-Evolution's pioneering approach to carbon offsetting focuses on the "social aspect of planting trees." Arbre-Evolution selects and supports projects from ideas put forward by businesses and community groups seeking to offset their carbon footprints through community tree planting and reforestation projects on publicly or collectively owned land.

In addition to its partnership with Coop Carbone, Arbre-Evolution is working with the Forest Stewardship Council of Canada. The co-op's approach enables communities and companies to be part of the process rather than simply purchasing carbon credits.
