How to Restore Native forests in Aotearoa at Scale: NZ Herald op-ed
Climate change is the greatest challenge of our time. Native forest restoration is the largest weapon we have in the climate fight. So...
— Landowner, Glen Dene station.
“Native CarbonCrop Units have led to a tangible financial outcome, now all re-invested in restoration showing us that the station can generate new, conservation-related income streams alongside traditional farming."
"It’s great to finally have a value on our restoration efforts on-farm for our natives and the Native CCU will enable us to progress our farm’s environmental and climate goals."
— Landowner, Grant M.
"Maggie Marilyn is committed to transparency throughout our supply chain in order to maximise our sustainability impact. Maggie Marilyn is Toitū certified 'climate positive' however, they also purchase Native CCUs to further mitigate the impact of their emissions on the planet."
"Heilala Vanilla is proud to be supporting regenerating native forest in New Zealand with CarbonZ credits. We are continuously looking at our impact on the environment across our total business from Tonga to New Zealand and believe partnering with CarbonZ offsets is a real positive step forward in our journey."
"Victory Knives are beginning our journey of understanding our company's carbon footprint. We value CarbonZ’s transparency around their credits being only native New Zealand plantations (not invasive Pine) which we believe is very important to longevity and credibility of carbon sequestration. Their low overheads mean our funds are going a long way to support Kiwi farmers directly and their restoration."
"At Amokura Glass, we are looking for ways to become more sustainable in all areas of our business. Glass blowing has a large carbon footprint; we cannot completely move away from heavy gas usage or large shipping costs. To offset this, we have begun buying CCUs from CarbonZ. We really like that all their carbon credits go to planting New Zealand natives. We love that we are supporting locals and that these trees will help our country over a longer period than pine. And, these forests don’t just trap carbon, they also ensure our native birds have a good habitat to live in!"
“We are conscious of the emissions produced from our operations at Troydon and are looking at many ways to cut emissions as our business grows. Our business is well connected with rural communities and it's great to see the funds from our offsets going towards restoration efforts on Glen Dene Station. We are happy to be doing our bit to conserve New Zealand for future generations. To know where our funds are going and where our carbon is being stored is important to us. Glen Dene has done significant work fencing off regenerating native bush and it's great to be supporting them to expand these efforts to bring back native forest."
"At Go Well consulting we know not all carbon credits are of equal quality. As we continue to purchase carbon credits, we will analyse the various methodologies and conduct our due diligence on the credit suppliers. We are confident in the CarbonCrop methodology and that the CCUs are in line with and exceed international voluntary carbon credit standards. We will continue to look closely at the evolving global standards to inform our credit purchases and we are excited to be supporting kiwi restoration initiatives for native forest."
