When we fund climate projects, how do we know they’re delivering measurable impact? It’s a request we often get from our Lune customers. We want sustainability champions to see where their climate contributions go. In doing so they can feel confident in their decision, share the news with their stakeholders, and celebrate the successes.
So, to help bring the impact of carbon credits to life, we’re publishing quarterly updates from Lune’s library of curated, high quality climate projects – and this is the update for Q4 2023.
Wakefield Biochar was awarded a FSC (Forest Stewardship Council US) Leadership Award for producing FSC-certified biochar! The award was given for improving the health of soil, and providing education about the environmental benefits of biochar such as using biochar to remove carbon from the atmosphere.
The FSC is world’s most trusted forest certification system. The award recognises unrivalled excellence in advancing responsible forest management and forest conservation. Congratulations to our friends at Wakefield !
CarbonCure is partnering with Hierloom, the company building the first commercial Direct Air Capture facility in the U.S. In a world’s first, using CarbonCure’s Reclaimed Water Technology, captured CO₂ was permanently stored in concrete that was then supplied to construction projects. The process locks away CO₂ for centuries, ensuring it will not be returned to the atmosphere, even if the concrete is demolished.
The Delta Blue Carbon project in Sindh, Pakistan, stands as a remarkable success story in ecological and community restoration. A collaboration between the Sindh Forest Department and Delta Blue Carbon has transformed 250,000 acres into thriving Tamarind forests, boosting local livelihoods by $40 million! This 30-year visionary project not only champions carbon sequestration but also significantly bolsters job creation and biodiversity.
Celebrating a major milestone, the project has already generated 21,000 jobs, positively impacting 49,000 residents. The lush Tamar forests serve as natural fortresses against soil erosion, nurture fish populations, and enhance local biodiversity, exemplifying a perfect harmony of environmental stewardship and economic prosperity.
These updates are just a few snippets of the impact high quality climate projects have. Curious about our own process for sourcing and evaluating carbon credits?
