Natural capital & carbon

Gain insight in how you can increase your carbon storage and natural capital

Sustainable land-use and carbon sequestration
  • ROOTS benchmarks the baselines from which future positive impact is to be realized within your location of interest; 
  • ROOTS calculates biomass status and increment in natural, agricultural, forestry and agroforestry systems, taking into account all relevant factors (climate, soil, types of woody and non-woody plants, socio-economic conditions, etc.); 
  • Based on expected growth, ROOTS determines the amount of CO2 captured per ha in the most reliable way; 
  • Apart from CO2 sequestration potential, ROOTS quantifies other ecosystem benefits which add natural capital to your project (e.g. increased soil water availability, biodiversity, economical benefits from combining different new land use systems)  
  • BioGrowth development provides guidance in the preparation process for carbon credits generation of land-use systems. 

Benefits

  • Generating more income for land users by using carbon credits
  • Having quick and fast insight of how large areas of land can be transformed into sustainable land use systems by quantifying the natural capital
  • BGD can support our clients in each stage; from identifying potential until preparation of certification and implementation of projects.

Supply chain

Maximize net carbon reduction and trace sustainability impacts along your biobased supply chain

Sustainable sourcing and processing of biobased raw materials and end-products

Combining market-accepted standards with the ROOTS platform, we provide insights on carbon sequestration potentials and CO2 emissions throughout wood and other biobased supply chains.
