Zimmfor Forest Carbon Programs
A leading global specialist in the field of carbon markets and Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission programs.
Carbon is a naturally occurring substance that is being released into the atmosphere at increased rates due to human activities (i.e., burning fossil fuels) and deforestation. Forests provide a positive impact in capturing and storing carbon also known as sequestration. Photosynthesis converts carbon dioxide into carbon which is stored in the tree and oxygen which is released into the atmosphere. The amount of carbon stored within a forest varies depending on the age, growth, species, and management activities. The end uses of timber after harvesting continue to store carbon depending on their use (i.e., plywood, wood pellets, lumber, and paper). Sustainable forest management, which includes reforestation of harvested areas can contribute to reduced emissions by maintaining caron sequestration. Forest carbon projects which include deferring harvest on designated areas can also substantially contribute to carbon sequestration and can form an integral component of sustainable forest management planning. Zimmfor actively works with many different international carbon standards to find the most suited standard for each specific project.

Initial Assessment Reports
Fit & Proper Test
Prior to initiating a carbon project we will complete a Fit and Proper Test that will create a detailed strategy for your project. This will include the approximate number of credits you should expect to generate, the risks and challenges associated with your project and an overall plan for project implementation.
Design & Model
Upon your approval of the Fit and Proper Test we will complete the modelling and technical reports required to register and monitor your project. Zimmfor professionals will support you by completing all necessary assessments, biomass inventories and baseline scenario modelling required for your project.
