Up close and personal with Volkswagen’s e-Golf carbon offset project: Garcia River Forest

Green Car Congress

Emission reductions produced by the project are verified by an approved third party and registered with the Climate Action Reserve (Project ID CAR102 ). Trees are natural carbon sinks; they absorb carbon dioxide by photosynthesis, some of which is stored as carbon compounds in the wood—both during growth and even after harvesting, in the form of some wood products. Underground, forest soils and root structures store even more carbon.
