Our forest conservation and management program provides methods of sequestering carbon. The potential role of forestry is to sequestrate carbon to reduce the buildup of GHG in the atmosphere, through various Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) systems around the globe.
Forest conservation programs for terrestrial removal of atmospheric hazardous chemical through biological processes of plants and trees are achieved through afforestation and reforestation projects under the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).
Stratus is initiating programs that contributes to climate change mitigation by capturing (‘biosequestering’) the atmospheric carbon and locking it into the living and dead biomass in the ecosystem (e.g. tree biomass, soil organic carbon).
Afforestation can restore forests, and also help protect against soil erosion and flooding which has become a growing concern in some parts of the country. There are special specific trees, seedlings and stocks that will not only help protect against soil erosion and flooding, but will contribute to local economic development and re-forestation in semi-arid zones with no traditional agricultural land value, empowerment programs for local farmers, and address food security for rural communities, this helps to create jobs and sustainable infrastructure while at the same time reducing carbon emission in the area as well as creating natural wildlife habitat and conserving wetlands.
