About Native CCUs

Each Native CCU represents one tonne of carbon dioxide removed from the atmosphere within the vintage year of issuance by native forest. 

The owners of the land where Native CCUs originate have a binding obligation to ensure the CO2 stays locked up in the registered regenerating native forest for the next 100 years. We monitor these forests annually using satellite imagery combined with our forest loss detection technology.

The forest registered can only achieve this by being kept healthy, and landholders not allowing it to degrade, regardless of the initial establishment date of the forest.


Native CCUs are designed for transparency and long-term traceability. Each CCU has a unique ID and date stamp, and can be traced back to the original forest using CarbonTracer. Our detailed methodology is public for anyone to review. This gives clarity, visibility and accountability for everyone in the buying process.

What is Carbon Accounting?

Carbon accounting is an accounting method to count, inventory, track, and report your organisation's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This is also known as your carbon footprint.


You count your emissions and removals within your business boundaries. Your net position is all of your emissions less your removals.

How we can help you.

  1. Measure and monitor the carbon removals within your business boundaries

  2. Match you with biodiverse native forests in need of funding

  3. To tell a better net-zero story

You can’t mark your own homework! Best practice is to have three independent parties for ongoing emissions measurement, ongoing removals measurement, and certification.

Using Native CCU carbon removals as offsets

When applied as carbon offsets, Native CCUs are tradable units of carbon sequestration from biodiverse native forest. 

These units are not currently independently certified. We believe…
