UGent & Escuela Politécnica Nacional, Quito, Ecuador
The monitoring of the Treecological forests in Ecuador is carried out through a collaboration between Ghent University and the Ecuadorian EPN University of Applied Sciences (Escuela Politécnica Nacional) in Quito.
This external partner is responsible for a fair and correct calculation of yourCO2emissions.
The Treecological forests are permanently monitored by BOS+ and local partners. In addition, BOS+ organises a half-yearly visit to the Treecological forests. Finally, extensive cooperation and coordination between BOS+ and local universities ensures watertight monitoring of treecological forests and validation of compensatedCO2emissions.
Our guidelines for the validation of compensated CO 2 emissions are the Climate Community Biodiversity standard (CCB) and the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS).
The Treecological CO 2 calculation: a transparent and fair calculation of your emissions.
Treecological is transparent, scientifically based and uses well thought-out estimates. The applied method is user-friendly; only parameters that are easily available to and controled by the consumer are questioned. For parameters that the consumer is not aware of and that he or she has no direct influence on, well-founded averages are used.
Monitoring of the CO2-absorption of Treecological forests.
Monitoring programs are set up for all forest projects, in which CO 2 absorption is monitored in a scientifically substantiated manner. In Ecuador, monitoring is carried out by a partnership between Ghent University and the Ecuadorian EPN College (Escuela Politécnica Nacional) in Quito.
