Carbon dioxide, better known as CO2, is an invisible gas. It is an essential part of the natural carbon cycle, but it becomes a pollutant in too great a quantity. With the era of
industrialization, as well as the use of fossil fuels for transportation and energy, it has become one of the six most important greenhouse gases.
CO2 is therefore one of the main contributors to global warming, to the acidification of precipitation and oceans, but also to the melting of glaciers. At the rate at which modern society generates these gases, we face a crucial dilemma for the future of our planet. We must reduce our emissions and resource consumption, but also take collective action to increase our planet's ability to sequester CO2.
Trees and plants naturally capture carbon. Organizations, such as NatureLab.World, are undertaking reforestation projects to increase the Earth's ability to capture CO2 and thus offset, on a large scale, the CO2 emissions produced by modern society.
Each of our projects is then verified and accredited by recognized international organizations, such as Gold Standard and Rainforest Alliance, in order to guarantee the quality of our projects and to quantify the extent of CO2 compensation. Following this accreditation, NatureLab.World receives carbon credits equivalent to one tonne of offset CO2 each.
Individuals and companies can then purchase these carbon credits to offset their own carbon footprint. By getting involved, they become aware of the impact of their actions on the environment and choose to act directly. Each carbon credit purchased also allows the continuity of NatureLab.World projects to reduce CO2 in the air and promote sustainable development.
NatureLab.World has already completed several forestry and sustainable development projects to offset the global carbon footprint.
