your own forest project
With TreeTrust, companies receive their own afforestation project and thus, stable CO₂ prices and high-quality certificates for 40 years.
We arrange long-term and high-quality afforestation projects for companies to achieve their net-zero strategy. Through pre-financing, companies obtain their own forest project.
- Our risk know-how:
We minimize risks and make project risks transparent.
- Proven and secured purchasing process:
We save time and effort and point the way to your own forest with a proven contract framework and process.
- Digital transparency and experientiality:
With technology, we track growth and identify threats to young forests at an early stage.
Renaturation in Costa Rica
This year, tree planting will begin on over 1,000 hectares of former pastureland in northern Costa Rica for the first carbon removal project. Young forests will grow there and bind more than 600,000 tons of CO₂ over 40 years.
The project supports the restoration of a near-natural rainforest and benefits the diversity of wildlife, the quality of water, and the local people through jobs.

We select high-quality projects
Our customers receive young forests with verifiable quality. With our risk assessments, we subject all our projects to established standards in the afforestation sector, such as Gold Standard, PlanVivo, or VCS Verra.
We take care of the process
We structure the project, design the contract, and adapt it to the processes and structures of our customers.
We ensure project transparency
Our digital measurement and recording make climate protection tangible. The resulting transparency enables our customers to inform themselves and their stakeholders about all projects in detail.
Frequently asked questions about our corporate forests
There are many natural CO₂ sinks, and their potential is far from exhausted. But do these CO₂ sinks store atmospheric CO₂ long enough to have a climate impact? Young forest stands will continuously sequester CO₂ for decades and persist beyond the project phase.
This-called "additionality" of a project is a prerequisite to be proven in the project conception. Only if it can be demonstrated to the targeted auditing standard (in our case, mostly Gold Standard) that the desired environmental performance starts to take effect once the project starts, we may begin with the implementation. Additionality in our projects means that areas are also converted into forests previously used as steppe, wasteland, or pasture. It also means that new forests arise which would not have been realized without our companies.
Clarified handling of "Double-Counting"
The state of Costa Rica takes into account privately financed afforestation projects. Such efforts are costly but necessary for a flawless "authorized credit." For example, with our projects in Costa Rica, the problem of potential double-counting of CO₂ certificates generated has been solved.
Auditing and measurement of effectiveness
The projects are registered with the established standards for afforestation: This ensures binding and verifiable quality standards for projects at all stages of their duration. Furthermore, we will soon rely on additional digital data sources for monitoring the project parameters.
Profound risk transparency
In addition to the mandatory risk reporting and risk transparency services, we will use other data sources and monitoring services in the future. Our work promotes transparency on the growth progress and health status of the tree population, provides early information on potential risks, and enables remedial action.
Demonstrable contribution to further environmental goals of the UN
A project's contribution to the climate change goals SDG 13 is essential. But excellent and long-lasting projects also score points with other UN development goals. For example, we restore original terrestrial ecosystems through afforestation or ensure stable working conditions for the rural population through these projects.
