So what's a Carbon sink?

Well, keeping it simple, a Carbon sink absorb

more carbon than they release.

Forests being great in that sense, since a growing tree captures carbon dioxide and releases oxygen at the same time. 

Making them 2 x global champions!

NATURALLY

CLIMATE NEUTRAL

Trees play an important role in the carbon cycle by continually taking carbon out of the atmosphere through the process of photosynthesis.

SUSTAINABLE FORESTRY

Forests both store and release significant amounts of carbon as part of a natural cycle. Responsible forest management not only reduces a forest’s potential as a carbon source, it can also increase the effect of its carbon storage capacity.

 

Carbon moves in and out of the atmosphere through a natural process called the carbon cycle. Some years, forests hold more carbon than they release. When they capture more CO2, they are called carbon sinks.
