  • Dr Tomi Turner
    Carbon Ratings Scientist, ARR Lead
  • Ratings

After popular demand, Scorecard is now available for Afforestation, Reforestation & Restoration (ARR) projects. On Monday 26th February BeZero Carbon hosted a webinar and demo to learn about the different factors and questions involved in one of the market's fastest-growing sub-sectors.

 

What you will get from this webinar

  • Discover how we rate ARR projects and the key drivers of risk we assess in this sub-sector

  • See Scorecard in action with a short platform demo

  • Learn how to self-assess ARR projects at any stage of their lifecycle

 

What is Scorecard?

​Scorecard is a self-service tool for screening and assessing carbon projects at any stage of their lifecycle. It allows users to self-assess the carbon efficacy of projects through a series of questions on additionality, carbon accounting, and non-permanence risk.

​A first-of-its-kind risk assessment tool, Scorecard leverages our distilled learnings from having rated more than 380 projects. You can learn more by watching our webinar introducing Scorecard and reading our Scorecard insight.
