Detailed Project Information
Each project is unique, with different objectives. Detailed project information provides an overview, size, and estimated carbon tonnes sequestered over the duration of the project.
Each project will be scored to ensure that it meets the FCF’s high standards. The scoring sheet covers a wide range of tree planting projects and allows for projects with a wide range of objectives – from increasing biodiversity to creating a productive timber woodland.
Project scores are quantified to provide a monetary value, in alignment with the Natural Capital Committee assets. Projects scoring highly on natural capital assets may be eligible for additional funding.
