Trees against rising concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere

Trees help absorb carbon dioxide through photosynthesis, which the process of absorbing sunlight to create chemical energy (carbon dioxide) to later be used to fuel (oxygen) the organism. Forests therefore have a large storage of carbon i.e. per 400 tons of wood per hectare, 200 tons of carbon are stored. The biomass of a forests contain around 600 billion tons of carbon. Through monitoring of what trees are planting and which are preserved, it is possible to further enlarge the carbon storage or help store other harmul greenhouse gases.  

According to the International Panel for Climate Change 7.3 million acres of rainforest are lost. RVR - CFC concept helps prevent further destruction of the rainforest.

What can trees and forests do?

As deforestation is increasing, every tree planting can help contribute mitigate excess carbon dioxide. There are also other reasons for protecting forests and reforestation, such as preventing erosion, giving rise to condensation, regulating the water cycle, industrial wood production and providing a natural habitat.

Since 2009, the RVR-CFC Concept is an internationally registered concept and setting an example for how sustainable business model can work. With this concept over 90’000 trees haven been planted and thus more than 36’000 tons of carbon dioxide can be mitigated.
