Corporate Tree Planting and Carbon Capture & ESG

Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance is an evaluation of a firm’s (or company’s) collective conscientiousness for social and environmental factors. It is typically a score that is compiled from data collected surrounding specific metrics related to intangible assets within the enterprise.

Businesses around the world are being challenged on their commitments to the Environment, Social inclusion and the governance of their business. Are they meeting their own standards and well as the community’s standards?

AWiA and EcoForce Global provides companies with a unique opportunity that covers many of the requirements of best practice in the ESG field. Our program is actionable, transparent, sustainable and includes verifiable data.

Our program helps companies meet the ES component through the planting of trees to capture (drawdown) and store CO2 from the atmosphere

  • The supply of trees from local growers or the planting site maintaining provenance of species, selecting trees that meet soil and climate conditions, maximising growth and success.
  • The contracting of Landcare and like minded environmental groups to plant the trees. These funds are then used by these groups to achieve other important environmental work.

The measurement of soil carbon levels to create a baseline for carbon capture calculations.

  • The planting of trees on farm land, 50% of the worlds land is owned by farmers.
  • The monitoring of the trees each 6 months for 2 years through photographic and GPS tracking that is then supplied to our customers ( including our corproate partners)
  • The education and training of farmers in Regenerative Agriculture farming methods instead of the continued use of chemicals and fertilisers. Farmers enter a contract with EcoForce to maintain and report on the trees and their adoption of these practices thus supporting the costs incurred in moving from current methods to Regenerative Agriculture methods.

Understanding your TreeScore

Q: Our company has multiple offices, are they all under the one target?

Your company can use EcoForce Global’s tree planting programs in any way to engage your staff and stakeholders. The transparency of the plantings, GPS co ordinates and photographs make a compelling story of your company’s commitment to tree planting.

Q: How does EcoForce Global validate a company’s turnover?

Where companies have multiple outlets, EcoForce Global will calculate the company’s Star rating based upon the company’s control of each site. If they fall under HQ control, then the target will be spread across the sub branches. If each site is a separate business with separate Directors or Management then each site can have its own star rating

Q: When will my business earn its star rating?

Once a company has come on board and made a commitment, EcoForce Global corporate team will communicate directly with the business owners to establish credentials and a transparent path forward that allows the business to meet its objectives in a meaningful and positive way.The chosen star rating level will be validated against company revenue.

Q: How is a TreeScore calculated?

Provisional star ratings are issued for the first 12 months. Once the company’s commitment has been met then a company will earn its official star status.

The pending stars look like this

When companies register with EcoForce Global they are categorised based upon annual turnover.

Companies then make a commitment to contribute between 0.5% and 1.5% towards planting trees through EcoForce Global.

The levels and star ratings are calculated upon a company’s annual revenue.

Q: What is TreeScore?

In an age of green washing and haze surrounding many companies true credentials and commitment to the environment, TreeScore is a simple, transparent, accountable way for companies to commit to environmental support.
