Environmental offsetting solutions

A cleaner future starts right here.

We plant urban trees in the UK at a scale that can be offset against your organisation’s CO2 emissions, paper usage, air pollution and/or tree-felling activities. This is all done through our verified offsetting service, which is validated by a third party supplier. Your employees can help to plant the trees you have invested in – a fun, outdoor activity that will drive engagement levels within your business.

Scroll down to find out more about offsetting your carbon, paper, and tree felling activities.

Carbon offsetting

Harmful CO2 emissions are contributing to global warming.  In March 2016, NASA revealed that, globally, February 2016 was the hottest month on record. Offsetting your business’s carbon emissions shows that you’re an environmentally responsible and sustainable organisation, which can bring excellent business benefits.

Our audited tree-planting services offer a viable platform to achieve carbon offsetting, as trees naturally sequester relatively large amounts of CO2. Offsetting is based on the amount of CO2 that a tree will sequester over its lifetime, with a minimum lifetime of 100 years.

By providing our tree-planting services in urban areas, we can offer companies the chance to mitigate their emission in densely-populated areas of high pollution.

Carbon Offsetting

Case Study

TowerBrook Capital Partners plant carbon trees 

TowerBrook Capital Partners and Trees for Cities worked together to support their company’s carbon mitigation. TowerBrook Capital Partners is a multinational company and decided to mitigate carbon produced by their UK office by planting trees in UK cities.  TowerBrook Capital Partners benefited further by the trees being planted locally by engaging their employees who attended our green volunteering days to help plant the trees.

Paper offsetting

Trees are usually felled for paper production between the ages of 25 and 40 years.  These trees don’t live long enough to deliver the majority of their potential benefits to society.

The process of recycling paper is not 100% sustainable, as paper can only be recycled a maximum of 5-7 times. While we encourage companies to recycle, as well as using recycled and sustainably sourced paper, a responsible employer should still offset their paper usage.

Our audited tree-planting services can offer companies a sustainable way to offset their paper usage. Offsetting is based on the number of sheets of paper that the felled tree will produce over its lifetime, with a minimum lifetime of 100 years.

Paper Offsetting

Case Study

Pernod Ricard’s paper offsetting

Pernod Ricard and Trees for Cities worked in partnership to mitigate the paper used in their office. Pernod Ricard’s employees joined us to help plant the new trees that they contributed, thus effectively planting trees that were felled to produce the paper that each employee used. This activity made it so much more significant to the employees and substantially increased employee environmental awareness.

Tree replacement

Trees are felled for the production of many products – some companies even fell trees directly for their own operations. Felling trees at a premature age stops them from being able to contribute all of their benefits to society and the planet.

Our audited tree-planting services can offer companies a sustainable solution to offsetting their tree felling. We replace the number of trees that are felled with enough so that the same number will reach full maturity (100 years) – taking tree survival rate into account.

Velvet’s Three Trees Promise

Trees for Cities and Velvet / SCA Hygiene Products have worked in partnership since the launch of the Three Trees Promise in 2008. Together, we’ve now planted over 26,000 urban trees through a series of innovations that have captured the imaginations of Velvet customers and local communities.
