Highland Carbon is a purpose driven business founded by a Zoologist with experience working in international conservation projects.  We use that expertise to shape and to vet carbon offsetting projects undertaken right here in the UK. 

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, NatWest, 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.  The Scottish Highlands represent more than 50% of Scotland's land area, with just 9% of its population.  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.

In addition, we achieve educational, health and wellbeing outcomes via partnerships with Highland Outdoor & Wilderness Learning (HOWL) and EarthSelf.

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

To date, all of our UK projects have been located in the wilds of Scotland.  All of our UK projects are within the official frameworks of the Woodland Carbon Code and Peatland Code.  

We also offer offsetting opportunities overseas with the Verified Carbon Standard, Gold Standard, BioCarbon and United Nations (UNFCCC-CDM) quality marks.  We can offer a bespoke, blended solution that meets your price point and output requirements.  All of the aforementioned support the UN's Paris Agreement targets.
