Arnaldsstaðir in Fljótsdalur

Project description

ID: FCC017


A combination of about 68,000 spruce, pine and cotton wood were planted at Arnaldsstaðir in Fljótsdalur during the summer of 2022. The vegetation consists primarily of grassland, i.e. uncultivated fields. No other YGG project offers that level of uniformity, so it will be exciting to watch the changes in biodiversity in the coming years. Arnaldsstaðir is also a special place, as elves are said to live up the mountain above the town, so we hope that the forest will further improve their living conditions.

Pending certified carbon credits

These are carbon credits issued for the estimated amount of carbon sequestration over the lifetime of a project in whole or in part. Pending carbon credits become active carbon credits once the necessary measurements and certification procedures have been carried out. As it is verified, the carbon credit offsets emissions. Pending carbon credits cannot offset emissions.

Active certified carbon credit

A real, measurable, permanent, verified and unique transferable item recorded in a central register corresponding to one tonne of CO2. The credit is verified and thus offsets the carbon emissions of organisations and companies.
