The use of Natural Climate Solutions (NCS) carbon credits as part of a robust climate strategy can help corporates meet their corporate climate commitments and steer a pathway towards net zero whilst also channelling much needed investment into nature. Yet corporates require guidance on how they credibly do so and deliver a win-win-win outcome for climate, biodiversity and people.
Not only do NCS have the potential to address the driving cause of the climate crisis, they also carry the potential to build resilient and biodiverse ecosystems for generations to come.
