The Chicago Region Carbon Program (CRCP) provides opportunities to invest in tree planting and preservation. The program enables an efficient enrollment of planting and preservation projects into a regionwide carbon crediting program.
The goal of the CRCP is to improve the health and canopy of the urban forest in the Chicago region through increased tree planting or preservation while also generating revenue.
To invest in tree planting and preservation to increase carbon storage and support communities, contact CRTI’s Corporate Sustainability Partnership Program.
The revenue from carbon credit sales could be provided to urban forestry projects, enabling landowners to expand the health of the urban forest and the quality of life for people in the communities where those projects take place.
