In honour of World Environment Day on June 5th, we’re delighted to share a new film by Community Forests International. This short documentary entitled Standing Trees features the 353-acre Robinson Conservation Forest, which DIALOG’s carbon offset work helped to protect and restore.
DIALOG x Community Forests International
DIALOG is proud to be one of the first companies in Canada to offset greenhouse gas emissions through forest protection. Since first teaming up with Community Forests International over a decade ago, we’ve saved more than 1,300 acres of forest – including the 353-acre Robinson Conservation Forest featured in Standing Trees – and kept over 38,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas out of the atmosphere.
In total, DIALOG has helped to protect five forests through our partnership with Community Forest International:
- Whaelghinbran Forest: 705 acres / South Branch, NB
- Robinson Forest: 353 acres / Cambridge-Narrows, NB
- Buchanan Forest: 116 acres / Waterford, NB
- Ferndale Forest: 106 acres / Spring Brook, NB
- Walker Forest: 50 acres / Sackville, NB
By saving old forests, the emissions that would otherwise be released if they were destroyed are avoided and the forests survive as deepening carbon sinks. The forests left standing also support a diversity of life and livelihoods, benefiting the planet and people.
