UK PROJECTS

We have circa 500,000 TCO2e currently available in Scotland with another 300,000 TCO2e coming online with new projects in Scotland, England and Wales.  Our projects are carefully vetted and shaped for biodiversity impacts.

 

The Scottish Highlands are exceptionally well-known around the world and are much loved by your UK staff, customers and investors.  Unlike most other world-class biodiversity projects, these sites are convenient to visit.  Thus, they present an outstanding opportunity to create high quality, inspiring and engaging photo and drone video content for your ESG reporting, investor relations and public relations.

 

See the navigation bar within 'UK Projects' for details on each site.  Availability and quantities are as of June 2021.
