Emerald City Sustainability
An average tree in the Amazon weighs two tons and sucks 7 tonnes of carbon from the atmosphere. Our 100 to 1 carbon commitment for Emerald City means for every ton of carbon produced each year, we aim to suck 100 tons of carbon from the atmosphere through dedicated tree restoration programmes. In year one, (from April 2020 to 2021), Emerald City expects to consume less than one ton of carbon, but our commitment is to plant enough tree capacity to remove 700 tons of carbon from the atmosphere. This translates to 200 trees per acre of tree planting over 3.5 reclaimed acres, restored from purchased degraded land in partnership with local indigenous partners.
