Urban Forestry Carbon Offset Protocol: Developing Projects Through the Offset Network
July 9 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDTFree
The Offset Network, now hosted by Second Nature, presents a new pathway for colleges and universities to develop carbon offset methodologies. New methodologies can undergo a technical expert review process to obtain approval for use through the Offset Network. Learn about this new pathway, and the first protocol to complete the technical review process- Duke University’s Urban Forestry Protocol. Presenters will introduce in detail the Urban Forestry Protocol, including examples of how campuses can use the protocol to develop tree-planting projects in their own communities. The webinar will also discuss the technical review process, and share how colleges and universities may work with the Offset Network to create their own new types of carbon offset methodologies. Join this webinar whether you are just starting to think about carbon offsets for your institution, or have already developed offset projects and are interested in learning about new updates from the Offset Network.
