The Carbon Positive Project is delivering a comprehensive approach to carbon management in five key steps:

Calculating NRW's net carbon status

  • Calculate greenhouse gas emissions from the use of our buildings, transport, the management of our estate and purchased goods and services
  • Estimate carbon sequestration rates of habitats on our estate
  • Estimate carbon stocks held within habitats on our estate

Go to Calculating our net carbon status

Evaluating options for mitigation

  • Evaluate options to reduce emissions, enhance sequestration and protect carbon stocks
  • Prioritise options for delivery by exploring costs, carbon savings, wider benefits and feasibility

Demonstration projects

  • Deliver initial projects demonstrating potential mitigation options and best practice

Communications and working with others

  • Collaborate with, and learn from, progressive organisations managing their carbon impact in ambitious and innovative ways
  • Engage staff and work collaboratively across NRW to embed exemplary carbon management into our activities
  • Facilitate and encourage positive action on carbon management across the Welsh public sector through communicating our approach and disseminating best practice
