Carbon credit program for private woodland owners

Improve the ecological and capital value of your forest and
unlock carbon-based income from your land with CO2 credits


What are carbon credits?

The effects of carbon emissions from human and business activities have a lasting negative impact on our climate and living environment.

A carbon credit is a quantified environmental benefit that is designed to compensate for or neutralize impacts on environmental functions. Forests are an essential element of the global carbon cycle. Trees absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and help reduce the effects of climate change. That makes generating and selling carbon credits an additional revenue stream for woodland owners.

GreenDeal brings together companies who wish to offset their carbon emissions and woodland owners who want to earn income from their land and forest.

GreenDeal makes generating and selling carbon credits easy

The GreenDeal carbon credit program supports forest owners who see their land and forest as a long-term investment and are willing to follow climate-informed forest management principles in cooperation with forestry experts.

Interested in finding out how much carbon your forest land stores?

Send us information about your forests and we will calculate it for you.
Our specialists will then explain the results to you. This does not oblige you to anything.

How does it work?

The long-term capacity of forest ecosystems to absorb and sequester carbon depends on many factors. These include land management activities, species composition, age, disturbance, climate etc. With our calculator, we can take these factors into account.

The most accurate forest land CO2 calculator in the world

The GreenDeal CO2 calculator was built in collaboration with forest and carbon scientists from the University of Tartu, Tallinn University, the Estonian University of Life Sciences and various companies.

While other calculators measure only 1-2 factors to calculate the CO2 balance, we provide a data-based methodology that includes much more factors. We believe that accurate measurement is the first step towards a solution to the climate crisis.

Our tool makes the calculation of potential carbon income as accurate, fast, and easy as possible.

  • What are carbon credits?

    We all have a carbon footprint. Companies and individuals can account for their unavoidable emissions by buying carbon credits from certified activities that protect ecosystems and reduce or remove emissions from the atmosphere. The forest binds carbon, and therefore companies are interested in buying carbon credits from the forest owners to compensate for the negative effects of their own activities. A carbon credit is a certificate that proves that the company has paid for the removal of a certain amount of CO2 from the environment.

  • Which forest properties are eligible to enroll on the GreenDeal carbon program?

    We aim to make the forest carbon credit markets approachable to a wide range of landowners that are interested in contributing to meaningful natural climate solutions. All types and sizes of forests are eligible for the GreenDeal carbon program. Based on the information about your forestland, we will prepare a personal offer.

  • How long does it take to join the program?

This will be followed by an offer and consultation. We will walk you through the responsibilities, payment deadlines, and technical specifications to be followed. Once everything is clear with the agreement, we can sign the contract.

  • Who buys the carbon credits?

    Companies that wish to offset their emissions purchase carbon credits. The GreenDeal platform is preferred by those who want to see data-driven and real-world impact. As a forestland owner, you get paid for an amount of carbon that your forest in fact sequesters and stores from the atmosphere.

  • Why should I choose the GreenDeal carbon program?

    Our forest CO2 calculator is the most accurate solution in the world. Most calculators take into account only 1-2 factors to find out the CO2 balance of the property.

We are also the first ones in Estonia to provide an opportunity to receive money from carbon credits for private forest owners. Customers choose us for our expertise and knowledge.

  • How much additional income can be earned?

    Your income depends on the type of trees, the quality of the land, the length of the project, etc. Income also depends on specific conditions and the price of carbon units at the time of sale. We calculate the potential income of your property before making an offer.
