ClimateCHECK and Saskatchewan Research Council Establish Cooperative Agreement on Carbon Forestry Services

    OTTAWA, Aug. 30 /CNW/ - ClimateCHECK is pleased to announce that it has
entered into a cooperative agreement with the Saskatchewan Research Council
(SRC) to provide advisory and verification services for technologies related
to greenhouse gas (GHG) projects to mitigate climate change.
    "SRC's technical expertise with carbon storage in forests and other
climate change-related initiatives complements ClimateCHECK's extensive
network of technical experts in the US and Canada," said Tom Baumann of
ClimateCHECK. "SRC's contributions to state-of-the-art forest carbon
accounting will provide customers with the high level of credibility required
for GHG credits."
    Carbon forestry involves using trees to take the carbon out of the
atmosphere, reducing levels of GHGs. Improving upon the management of existing
forests and establishing new forests are first steps to making a real
difference. "SRC, in partnership with ClimateCHECK, will build and demonstrate
capabilities for forest carbon projects," said SRC Environment and Forestry
Division's Mark Johnston. "SRC has been conducting research in climate change
for over 25 years and is a recognized authority on how to manage forests to
store more carbon."
    The cooperative agreement enables ClimateCHECK and SRC to collaborate in
providing advisory and verification services on GHG projects, with a
particular emphasis on carbon forestry projects throughout North America based
on the new ISO 14064 GHG Standards and the World Business Council for
Sustainable Development and World Resources Institute (WBCSD/WRI) GHG Protocol
for Projects.
