FCCWG Webinar -The Importance of Carbon in a Climate Emergency

20 April 2021

The Forestry & Climate Change Working Group with CarbonStore

The Forestry Climate Change Working Group (FCCWG) present this Workshop Webinar; a free online workshop for forestry practitioners exploring the importance of carbon in a climate emergency.

As a result of the UK’s commitment to becoming a Net Zero economy by 2050, carbon sequestration is likely to become a significant additional source of income for landowners looking to enhance their property with woodland creation and can underpin the financial viability of a project.

The Forestry Climate Change Working Group is comprised of several leading forestry organisations, including CLA, CONFOR, Defra, the Forestry Commission, Forest Research, the Future Trees Trust, the Institute of Chartered Foresters, Natural England, the National Trust, Forestry England, the Small Woods Association, the Royal Forestry Society, the Sylva Foundation, Tilhill, the Tree Council, Woodland Heritage and the Woodland Trust.

It was created to drive forward closer relationships with government in terms of policy, forestry strategy, regulation, science and innovation.

This workshop follows on from the 2020 sessions which feature in-depth content developed and presented by expert members of the Forestry Climate Change Working Group (FCCWG) to bring the knowledge and skills needed to our growing industry of forestry practitioners.This new series will focus on the importance of carbon in a climate emergency.
The role woodland creation will be playing in terms of carbon offsetting, carbon auctions, carbon investments and carbon as a nature based solution.

The workshop features four experts in carbon in relation to our woodlands and forests.

Presentations and speakers include:

Chair: David Edwards, Tilhill, Regional Manager for Wales and soon to be Forestry Director

Andy Baker, Woodland Carbon Markets Advisor, Woodland Carbon Code: Woodland Carbon Code Explained

Chris Waterfield, Carbon & Water Advisor, Forestry Commission: Carbon Auctions

David McCulloch, Head of CarbonStore: Carbon Investments

Ilona Coulson-Ashworth, Carbon Projects Manager, Woodland Trust: Nature Based Solutions

The event is chaired by David Edwards, Tilhill, Forestry Director and includes a Q&A session joined by John Weir, Forestry Commission Advisor for Woodland Resilience with a panel discussion at the end.
