Carbon Responsible Certified
At Tense, we believe in doing our part to help stop the effects of climate change.
We have partnered with Taking Root, a not for profit that is a pioneer in leveraging the forest carbon offset industry to promote economic development amongst smallholder farmers in Central America. Their mission is to use reforestation as a tool to mitigate climate change, restore ecosystems and improve livelihoods. This is achieved by encouraging smallholder-farming families to reforest the under-utilized parts of their farms using native tree species in exchange for direct payments over time as the trees sequester carbon from the atmosphere. These carbon sequestration services are then marketed and sold directly within Canada and through channel partnerships in Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, England, the USA and Spain.
With the help of Taking Root, we were able offset 50 tonnes of Carbon by helping to grow 278 trees in 2019. We plan to continue to offset our yearly Carbon Emissions, plus more with the help of Taking Root.
