FAQ

What is a Carbon Credit?

A carbon credit is a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions earned by forest owners who sequester carbon from the atmosphere. Carbon credits are brought by emitters to compensate for emissions made somewhere else. 

Credits are traceable, tradable and finite; when carbon credits are purchased to offset emissions, they are retired forever. 

Revenue earned from credits is used to fund projects and activities that increase, restore and protect forests, often supporting local communities through financial incentives that keep trees standing. MyNativeForest helps fund these programs.

What is a Planned Carbon Unit (PCU)?

A Planned Carbon Unit is a contract between a seller and a buyer to purchase a forest’s future Carbon Credits.

For landowners (sellers) to claim Planned Carbon Units, they must provide evidence of their planned native forest, including quotes for trees, forest management contractor agreements and timelines. Once the project plan is approved, the forest is assigned planned carbon units based on the estimated amount of future carbon credits it will generate at 5 yearly intervals (up to 20 years). Each 5-year batch has a maturity date for when it will convert to carbon credits that will be registered in the New Zealand Emissions Trading Scheme.

Planned Carbon units can be onsold to buyers at an agreed market rate. Buyers can negotiate prices and will consider things such as maturity date to negotiate a discount. Moreover, buyers can lock in carbon credits at their current rate or even for a discount. When the carbon future reaches maturity it is converted into a credit and transferred to a trading account.

One Planned Carbon Unit (PCU) = One Verified Carbon Credit / Unit (VCU)

Simply put, buyers are the investors in the native forest and receive rights to the future carbon credits it will generate. The landowner (seller) can then use the investment to buy the trees to plant the forest.
