EKEN Financing Value Added Forestry AB (Eken) provides companies affiliated with the Science Based Targets Initiative the opportunity to invest in high-quality carbon credits in Swedish forests with immediate climate impact. Access to the certified carbon credits is based on long-term agreements with Swedish forest owners who are compensated for postponing logging and improving forestry practices. The trees are allowed to grow for a longer period before harvesting, leading to increased timber volume and carbon sequestration.
Eken’s projects are certified by the leading electronic registry, Verra. The projects meet Verra’s highest quality standards in terms of permanence, additionality, and risks of emission leakage.
