The Plains, Va., Jun. 05 /CSRwire/ - This week ACRE Investment Management and it’s flagship reforestation program, GreenTrees, are rolling out a new commodity for the carbon markets. Carbon + is a new bundled credit that links each verified emission reduction (VER) with two trees at a single price.

Carbon+ creates a flywheel for those who want the best of two worlds. The bundling of one ton of carbon and two trees into a single transaction links reforestation carbon purchases to new forest creation. There are large levels of interest in this new offering as Carbon+ helps companies unify their goals —- Repairing The Past and Growing The Future.

Trees are nature’s technology. Trees are scalable, deployable and can be planted anywhere in the world.  Unlike other offset types, reforestation builds equity in the future, creating a multitude of additional benefits from water quality to water storage to biodiversity values.

“As the market leader in reforestation carbon, GreenTrees is uniquely positioned and pleased to be bringing this product offering to the marketplace,” said Jerry Van Voorhis, CEO of ACRE Investment Management. “Linked to the mission of ACRE Investment Management, Carbon+ is about connecting velocity and scale with forests and carbon.”
