New Forests believes that corporate and investment in greenhouse gas (GHG) accounting frameworks do not accurately capture the role of carbon removals by forests and carbon storage in durable wood products. Therefore, the company is working to advance GHG forestry accounting via working groups and plans to pilot the Carbon Removals Standard for the GHG Protocol in 2021.
