Corporate Tree Planting and Carbon Capture & ESG
Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance is an evaluation of a firm’s (or company’s) collective conscientiousness for social and environmental factors. It is typically a score that is compiled from data collected surrounding specific metrics related to intangible assets within the enterprise.
Businesses around the world are being challenged on their commitments to the Environment, Social inclusion and the governance of their business. Are they meeting their own standards and well as the community’s standards?
EcoForce Global provides companies with a unique opportunity that covers many of the requirements of best practice in the ESG field. Our program is actionable, transparent, sustainable and includes verifiable data.
Our program helps companies meet the ES component through the planting of trees to capture (drawdown) and store CO2 from the atmosphere
Regenerative Agriculture principles include the…
Reduced soil disturbance through no-till agricultural practices.
Keep cover on the soil (green growing cover is most effective)
Keep living roots in the soil as much as possible.
Create as much diversity as possible.
Integrate animals into the system.
Upon the completion of the two year agreement, we supply a second soil carbon measurement to show increased carbon sequestration levels ( capture) to validate carbon tonnage to sell into world carbon credit markets
For every tree sold through EcoForce we also commit one to land repair from disasters around the world, bushfires, floods, droughts etc and we do this with internationally reecognised organisations.
We engage our customers in site visits to see their tree plantings and immerse them with updates directly from our farmers in the progress of their plantings.

When you are responsible for the purchase of tree that is planted with an EcoForce Global farmer, as the owner of that tree, we EcoForce will report to you each 6 months for the first 5 years on the growth of your tree. In each of these reports we will estimate the total amount of carbon sequestered into the tree. This total of carbon is what you will be able to offer people/ businesses to purchase to offset their own emissions.
Every tree differs and each planting environment has an effect on tree growth. Some trees can capture up to 25kg. Each tree species that we plant based upon local climate needs will generate a different sequestration rate.
No you don’t. Each report we provide you will update you on the estimated amount of Co2 that has been captured in your trees. At any time you can place your trees into our Carbon Pool.
The Carbon Pool is the total amount of Co2 that has been committed by EcoForce customers to the EcoForce Global Carbon exchange pool that can be purchased by others, individuals or businesses or other interested parties.
Every customer of EcoForce Global will be invited to commit their Co2 to the Carbon pool. It is not mandatory for every customer to commit their Co2 to the Carbon Pool, it is totally voluntary.
EcoForce Global will price the tonne of Co2 at sale time to reflect a premium on the current market rate. We will do this because we have individual tree tracking, photographic evidence, GPS tracking and tree circumference and height details that allows us to most accurately calculate the amount of Co2 in the tree at that point in time.
Yes any person who purchases a tree be they a customer, a person who has been gifted the tree and the title transferred to them or a company that makes a bulk purchase to align with ESG or CSR or SDG requirements can earn the income from the trading of these carbon credits.
For example a company could purchase One Thousand (1000) trees , claim it as a tax deduction and then earn the income on which they would have to pay tax on the carbon credit income.
Yes you will receive 85% of the value of the carbon sold into the market. The 15% covers cost of transaction, management and in the case of the death of the tree, the cost of replacing the tree.
All tree owners will have to log into their customer account and commit their trees to the carbon Pool. This is done by logging in via this url https://www.ecoforceglobal.com/advocate/ then under the Account Menu look for the link called Carbon Pool Application and complete the form. Once that has been completed all your trees past and future will be allocated to the Carbon pool
Your company can use EcoForce Global’s tree planting programs in any way to engage your staff and stakeholders. The transparency of the plantings, GPS co ordinates and photographs make a compelling story of your company’s commitment to tree planting.
Where companies have multiple outlets, EcoForce Global will calculate the company’s Star rating based upon the company’s control of each site. If they fall under HQ control, then the target will be spread across the sub branches. If each site is a separate business with separate Directors or Management then each site can have its own star rating
Once a company has come on board and made a commitment, EcoForce Global corporate team will communicate directly with the business owners to establish credentials and a transparent path forward that allows the business to meet its objectives in a meaningful and positive way.The chosen star rating level will be validated against company revenue.
Provisional star ratings are issued for the first 12 months. Once the company’s commitment has been met then a company will earn its official star status.
The pending stars look like this
Official stars look like this
When companies register with EcoForce Global they are categorised based upon annual turnover.
Companies then make a commitment to contribute between 0.5% and 1.5% towards planting trees through EcoForce Global.
The levels and star ratings are calculated upon a company’s annual revenue.
In an age of green washing and haze surrounding many companies true credentials and commitment to the environment, TreeScore is a simple, transparent, accountable way for companies to commit to environmental support.
