Inhouse Carbon Removal

Inhouse carbon removal is the act of investing in your own verifiable carbon sequestration project.  This can be done within your own value chain (known as insetting) or beyond value chain (known as BVCM).  

Clear business case for ‘grow your own’

Whist the Land Sector Guidance for carbon removals is still evolving, it is inevitable that verified removals will be a key part of your net zero strategy in the coming years. With carbon credit prices set to soar, having your own carbon sink to achieve net zero and drive ESG benefits has a clear business case.  We enable the process at each stage, ensuring rigour and success.

SBTi

Achieving your science based target demands that you plan for 10% residual emissions

By 2030, carbon credit prices are forecast to be north of £75 per tonne. Financial risk is significant on a ‘do nothing trajectory’.

After a company has achieved its long-term target and cut emissions by more than 90%, it must use permanent carbon removal and storage to counterbalance the final 10% or more of residual emissions that cannot be eliminated.

The time is now to invest in your own SBTi-compliant carbon removals

How can OCW help my organisation to measure or validate our carbon footprint?

Each organisation has a unique and different carbon footprint. That is why One Carbon World and its team of technical experts can now report on over 7000 calculations. Our team will guide you through this process and will help you to measure your Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. We first invite you to select a date and time for a phone consultation with your dedicated technical expert. During the technical call, our expert will explain the emissions sources that we will include and the methodologies we will apply. We will guide you through the data collection procedure and also review any data you have already collected, if applicable. We always attach a guide for data collection for reference. If you have made a self-assessment of your carbon footprint we will talk you through the OCW UN approved verification process. Once we receive your data, our experienced team of carbon auditors will calculate your carbon footprint, and this will be sent for independent external validation.

What is Net-Zero?

Achieving net-zero involves committing to rebalancing or reducing an organisation’s carbon dioxide emissions to an extent that balances the overall emissions. It is  a strategic approach focused on minimising the net environmental impact, ensuring that the total carbon footprint is effectively counteracted through initiatives like investing in renewable energy projects or adopting nature-based solutions.

What Standards do you offer? (OCW Carbon Neutral International Standard & OCW Net Zero International Standard)

Every organisation that measures/verifies its emissions with One Carbon World, achieves the Carbon Neutral International Standard or the  Net Zero International Standard. Our recognised Carbon Neutral International Standard and Net Zero International Standard are based on a series of steps, and we provide comprehensive support, robust certification and verification, and first-class assessment. There are a set of minimum requirements to achieve the Standard, but we also encourage our partners to adopt best practices where possible, in order to achieve recognition and market-leading status. This means that your organisation will be measuring your emissions to the highest standards of the industry, in line with the Kyoto Protocol and the Greenhouse Gas Protocol, as well as meeting the reporting requirements of the GHG Protocol Corporate Standard and compatible with international standards ISO 14064 and PAS 2060.

What does one tonne of CO2 look like in practical terms?

The carbon footprint is quantified in tonnes of CO2e, and visualising this amount can provide context. Consider the following examples:
- 120,000 smartphone charges.
- Heating an average-sized apartment for two months.
- 72 trips Amsterdam – Paris with the Thalys.
- The amount of CO2 absorbed by a beech tree during around 80 years of growth.
- If one tonne of CO2 were compressed into a gaseous state, the resulting cube would have edges measuring eight metres under normal conditions
