How it works

  • Carbon footprint facilitates education and tree planting around the United Kingdom 
  • Once the trees have matured, they begin to absorb carbon from the atmosphere and become a natural carbon sink 
  • For every tree planted, one offset credit is purchased from a VCS certified project, protecting forests that are already matured and absorbing carbon 

Proof of Carbon Accounting

To ensure transparency, Green Story Carbon Registry tracks issuance and retirement of carbon credits for all projects on the Green Story offset platform.
