This page provides help with the most common questions about 17tons. Feel free to contact us if you have further questions
How does the service that 17tons offer work?
If you are a customer you will sign a service contract with 17tons and you will be able to see the trees that our landlords have planted and grew. If you are a landlord we will provide you with data and information to monitor tree growth.
Can I integrate tree growth data and the amount of CO2 stocked in my app or in the app that I provide to my customers?
Yes, 17tons provides API management for data transfer.
What do you do when a tree dies?
When a tree dies, its digital entity on our DMRV platform is turned off and therefore that tree is no longer included in the CO2 removal calculation. Furthermore, to compensate for potential loss of trees during the lifecycle of the project, we plant an additional 10% of trees.
Where does your planting partner plant trees?
At this stage, we have agreements with partners that operates primarily in Italy, Europe and Africa.
What are the standards we follow or we require from planters?
ISO 11646:2014, ISO 14064-1, ISO 14067:2018, ISO 14020:2002 Nucleo Monitoraggio Carbonio, INEA, 2016, Codice Forestale del Carbonio 2016, Il Biosequestro del Carbonio in agricoltura, Accademia di agricoltura di Torino (G. Masoero, 2020), IPCC 2006, 2006 IPCC Guidelines for National Greenhouse Gas Inventories, Prepared by the National Greenhouse Gas Inventories Programme, System of Environmental-Economic Accounting, Ecosystem Accounting 29 settembre 2021, GHG Inventory Guidance Use to prepare a GHG inventory and quantify emissions - Scope 1, 2, 3, Gold Standard for the Global Goals, 2019, Carbon Offsetting Gold Standard, 2020
How different is 17tons from other monitoring and verification methods?
We cover the entire land project/field with RFID TAG and IoT sensors to automatically capture real time data (with short term frequency e.g.: any 1 / 3 months), from soul, air and tree. We use these data to quantify each plant’s CO2 removal, as well as other ‘ecosystem services’. Other methods undertake manual assessment on a portion of the field, as per the entire one, and calculate the CO2 removal on the basis of standards instead of real data. Moreover we can provide the Client with prevention and predictive advice on growth or death tree risk
How do I access my forestation project data?
Clients can view the real data through our simple user web platform, mobile app or through our simple APIs to integrate in their company platform.
