Data of the United Nations (UNFCCC) as well as over 70 scientific studies are the basis of the calculation how much CO2 ecosystems can absorb.
The United Nations' Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC)
The global organization regulary records the CO₂ storage capacity of natural habitats. We believe they are more than worth protecting.
Our calculation of the CO₂ storage capacity of natural habitats is based on the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
The UNFCCC measures the extent to which natural ecosystems and their use serve as carbon sinks.
The data collected is used for worldwide emissions trading and updated on a regular basis. On February 28th, 2014, wetlands and coastlines were included as carbon sinks.
In addition, 70 studies were conducted to examine various natural ecosystems' CO₂ storage capacities.
We will present all the results transparently on a world map.
As an absolute carbon neutrality is essentially impossible, this data can only be used as an approximation.
CO₂ emissions will always be a part of our lives. But every effort, every small step for climate protection counts.
