Winner: Green Business of the Year Award 2023
Runner-Up: Green Business of the Year Award 2022


At Highland Carbon we envision a future with a livable climate, spectacular natural areas full of biodiversity and sustainable communities where people enjoy quality of life.

Highland Carbon has won the award for 'Best UK Carbon Credit Supplier' for three years in a row.  We were recently lauded by the British Chambers of Commerce as one of several inspirational, innovative businesses working on green solutions during the lead up to COP28.  We won the 'Green Business of the Year Award' from the Doncaster Chamber of Commerce in 2023, having been runners-up in 2022.  We were also finalists for the 'South Yorkshire Sustainability Award' in 2023.  

Highland Carbon is a purpose-driven business founded by a Zoologist with experience working in international conservation.  We use that expertise to shape and to vet climate forest and wetland projects undertaken and validated in the UK, which achieve Pending Issuance Units that will convert to certified Woodland Carbon Units and Peatland Units.  We also source offsetting from the international market, which enables us to offer stacked solutions and a range of certifications for Net Zero, Carbon Neutral, Nature Positive and Climate Positive.

The UK is one of the most nature-depleted countries on Earth.  One in seven species are under threat of extinction.  We believe that nature-based carbon offsetting projects, when carefully sited and designed appropriately, present the best opportunity in history to rebalance UK nature.

Currently, Highland Carbon partners with a dozen large, Scottish estates in spectacular, filmic locations.  Our UK projects have been developed within the frameworks of the Woodland Carbon Code and Peatland Code.  

Our Managing Director, Richard Clarke, has more than thirty years of experience recruiting and supporting Corporate Social Responsibility partners in both the United Kingdom and United States.  He has worked with more than one hundred blue chip company clients, for example: IKEA, Sainsburys, HSBC, Dorothy Perkins, Disney, General Motors, Royal Caribbean, Steelcase, Rolls Royce, CNN and Ford Motor Company. 

Our forestry and peatland restoration projects bring enormous community economic development benefits to the UK's remotest communities.  Year-round employment opportunities are relatively few.  We endeavour to hire local people, whenever possible, to undertake work such as: deer fence installation, tree planting, earth moving, ecological assessments and more.  Locals can benefit from both project creation and project maintenance.

We help our company clients to achieve their carbon credentials.  We offer deeply engaging content for Environmental Social Governance (ESG) and Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) reporting.  We can also support communications with content available for public relations, investor relations, employee engagement, customer engagement and digital campaigns.  In short, we bring significant added value to our partnerships.

We offer international offsetting opportunities overseas with the Gold Standard, Verified Carbon Standard, BioCarbon, Universal Carbon and United Nations (UNFCCC-CDM) quality marks.  We can offer a bespoke, blended solution that meets your price point and output requirements.  For example, a combination of nature-based solutions and renewable energy projects.  All of the aforementioned support the UN's Paris Agreement targets.
