FAQs

Here are the frequently asked questions that we have compiled to help you find the answers to the problems you are wondering.

Climate
Protection

What is the most effective solution
to climate change?

Cut emissions. While climate change cannot be stopped, it can be slowed. To avoid the worst consequences of climate change, we'll need to reach “net zero” carbon emissions by 2050 or sooner. Net zero means that, on balance, no more carbon is dumped into the atmosphere than is taken out.

What protects us efficiently from climate moods?

Peatlands, wetlands, soil, forests and oceans play a crucial role in absorbing and storing carbon, and thus helping to protect us from climate change. Currently, terrestrial and marine ecosystems absorb roughly half of the CO2 emissions humanity generates.

Project
Financing

Is green finance sustainable finance?

Sustainable finance is an evolution of green finance, as it takes into consideration environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues and risks, with the aim of increasing long-term investments in sustainable economic activities and projects.

Is it costly to launch a green assets project?

Costs vary according to project type, scale, and complexity. All upfront costs are taken care of by CO2.CAPITAL AG, including token issuance costs. Additional costs come from project implementation, third-party reviews by approved validation and verification bodies, certification review fees are paid out of the profit generated by trading the carbon credits represented by the digitalized trees.

Emissions
Footprint

What is our carbon footprint?

A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gases (including carbon dioxide and methane) that are generated by our actions.

How do I calculate my carbon footprint?

The best and easiest way is to use our calculator for a first precise estimation. For a more in depth and certified analysis, you can contact us and get in touch with one of our specialized auditors.

Carbon
Offset

What do carbon offsets do?

Carbon offsets occur when a polluting company buys a carbon credit to make up for the greenhouse gas it has emitted. The money should be used to fund action somewhere in the world that remove the same amount of carbon out of the air, or to prevent carbon emissions.

Are carbon offsets efficient?

Carbon offsetting is effective if it is additional – it reduces carbon emissions more than would have occurred without it – and permanent. Therefore, stop deforestation where it would legally be possible, plant new trees, develop new green projects etc.: CO2.CAPITAL’s crusade in a nutshell.

Landowners

Can I monetize my existing forest?

Yes if you reside in a country/region where the cutting of wood on a yearly basis is legal, thus respecting a certain given bracket. Ideally, the plot should have a size of minimum 100ha and reach a tree-density/ha of around 1000. Please contact us for more information.

What do I have to provide?

All official documents from the land registry proving your legitimate ownership of the plot. Ideally, the plot should have a size of minimum 100ha and reach a tree-density/ha of around 1000, and not be subject to any blocking restriction i.e. No drone fly zone, specific legal or biodiversity rulings etc. Please contact us for more information.
