Dasos reports on carbon impact

Dasos funds have contributed positively in 2019 to the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 13 on Climate Action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The assets under the Dasos funds act as carbon sinks and compensate for CO2 emissions in other sectors.

The first comprehensive Dasos Carbon Impact Report 2019, issued in May 2020, covers carbon impacts of all Dasos investments across the entire Dasos portfolio at the aggregate level, at the Fund level, and by each individual forest asset. The estimation of carbon impacts is done in accordance with approved international methods.

The Report quantifies both the direct impacts within Dasos control (forests, forest soils, harvesting), and indirect impacts beyond the Dasos system in terms of capturing the net carbon impacts along the entire value chain from transport to processing.

Reporting on Dasos Carbon Impact, we continue to be at the forefront of meeting global investors’ needs for information on our Funds’ carbon footprint. It also shows how Dasos forests contribute to a sustainable, low-carbon development pathways for our economy, society and planet, consistent with the objectives of the Paris Agreement within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC).
