Finland’s goal is to be carbon neutral by 2035. This will require widespread emission reductions across all sectors and stronger carbon sinks. Forests are natural carbon sinks. They are extremely efficient at taking huge amounts of carbon dioxide (and other greenhouse gas emissions) from the atmosphere.This process is known as carbon sequestration. Skoggi works with forest owners and businesses throughout Finland to extend the lifecycle of our nation’s forests. This simple act will reinforce carbon sequestration and ensure long-term carbon storage.
Forests are currently a net carbon sink because they take in more carbon dioxide than they emit. The capacity of European forests to absorb CO2 has been shrinking over the years by further increases in harvesting and negative impacts from natural hazards such as fires and pests. We work with forest owners around the world to restore and keep forest healthy and we also help them to gain more visibility by connecting them with companies and individuals who want to buy the carbon they capture to compensate their carbon footprint in the greenest possible way.We secure the transparency and the reliability of this process, combining our expertise about forest with cutting edge blockchain technologies.
