Webinar on New Methodology for Reduced Impact Logging

Webinar: Introduction to the VM0035 Methodology for Reduced Impact Logging (RIL-C)  Register Now

The Nature Conservancy, working with TerraCarbon, has developed a new methodology to account for the carbon benefits of reduced impact logging (RIL). Using VCS’s framework for standardized methods, this new methodology uses a performance method (ie, benchmark) to determine the additionality of and crediting baseline for RIL activities, with a particular focus on timber felling, skidding, and hauling. The accompanying module sets out the parameters one would use to credit RIL practices in East and North Kalimantan, Indonesia.

If your work involves reduced impact logging, or you are interested in how sectoral crediting could work, this is a webinar you won’t want to miss. Join us on Friday, July 15th, from 10-11am EDT.

We’ll Cover:

  • An overview of the methodology
  • The related module for RIL practices in East and North Kalimantan, Indonesia
  • Benefits and impacts
  • Opportunities to build other performance modules
