WOODLAND and Peatland Carbon Unit sales platform CarbonStore is hosting a webinar on 28 January which will outline the fundamental principles of nature-based solutions.

The webinar will focus particularly on woodland creation and peatland restoration, with CarbonStore explaining how its service works in practice, and the processes involved for projects registered with the UK Carbon Land Registry.

Entitled ‘Crafting Nature-Based Solutions for Your Business’, the webinar intends to explain how you can help to create vibrant, healthy woodlands or reinvigorate damaged peatlands to help protect the environment, enhance wildlife and benefit society.

CarbonStore is a business division of forestry company Tilhill.

The Webinar will be chaired by Tilhill’s Wales & Marches regional manager David Edwards.

The online event will feature two presentations:

  • David McCulloch, the head of CarbonStore, will explain how CarbonStore can help companies maximise the benefits arising from the implementation of nature-based solutions. David has a BSc (Hons) in Accounting, Finance and Economics and 18 years’ experience in the financial sector based in London and Tokyo, initially as an equity salesman and latterly as a corporate analyst.
  • Andy Baker MICFor, CarbonStore’s carbon project manager, will discuss the Woodland and Peatland Carbon Codes, their principles and their practices. Andy has a BSc (Hons) in Ecology and Environmental Science and represents the Institute of Chartered Foresters (ICF) on the Woodland Carbon Code Advisory Board. He gained his wide-ranging forestry experience within Tilhill and carbon sequestration has been an important driver of his forestry career.

“CarbonStore helps organisations cultivate the benefits of woodland creation and peatland restoration. We are a business division of Tilhill, the UK’s leading forestry management company”, said David McCulloch.

“This links us to the heart of UK woodland and land management and equips us with all the knowledge and experience necessary to create a healthy and vibrant environment.”

The presentations will be followed by a live Q&A session.

The webinar takes place at 10am on 28 January. You can sign up here.
