Purchasing high quality carbon credits is an effective way to contribute the transition to a low-carbon, climate secure world. However it can seem complex – especially answering what seems to be a simple question, “How much should I pay for a carbon credit?” Why is one carbon credit more expensive than another? Doesn’t every carbon credit represent one tonne of carbon dioxide prevented from entering the atmosphere? We hope to provide some clarity in how carbon credits are valued, taking into account significant differences among the projects that issue them.
British businesses are paying substantially more to produce carbon dioxide than their EU rivals because of the government’s refusal to link the UK carbon market to the bigger European market after Brexit. The difference is putting UK industry at a significant competitive disadvantage to European rivals, at a time of soaring energy prices, but does not result in any additional benefit to the environment.
Moringa trees absorb carbon dioxide 20 times more than other general trees, which means a mature moringa tree can absorb around 80 kg of carbon per year. We are planting moringa trees and using the plantations as carbon credits banks. There are a lot of carbon emissions by companies, that are unavoidable, but can be reduced, deleted or offsetted. For those companies that want to delete, or offset their carbon emissions, we sale them carbon credits from our moringa plantation banks, we then use the funds to empower communities to help fight climate change through engaging them into projects that promote sustainable use of resources (eg organic and conservation farming), recycling of both food and plastic materials at community level.
