PARTNERSHIPS

Partners complement the formal offsetting, via habitat restoration, provided by Highland Carbon.

Despite its beauty and drama, Scotland has become a nature-depleted nation. Many species that were once prolific now teeter on the edge; others have been hunted to extinction. Centuries of ecological decline have led the complex living systems, upon which we all depend, to falter.  Highland Carbon is in discussion with various nature charities to explore wider conservation initiatives on the estates where Highland Carbon's offsetting projects are located.  These various initiatives will add value to the carbon offsetting projects themselves whilst actively supporting the rewilding of the Scottish landscape.

Ecosulis is the longest-standing ecological contractor and consultancy in the UK, and one of the first to centre its purpose around rewilding.  They have decades of experience working on real-world projects, restoring habitats, returning biodiversity, providing strategic advice and developing innovations in the field. The team is scientifically, practically and technically proficient, allowing them to deliver biodiversity and rewilding outputs.

Highland Carbon is in discussions with the UK Carbon Code, a newly forming initiative, regarding novel approaches such as regenerative agriculture and agroforestry carbon offsetting.  The UK Carbon Code is expected to complement the established Woodland Carbon Code and Peatland Code, the two offsetting frameworks already followed by Highland Carbon.
