Starboard plants 3 Mangroves for each board produced, offsetting every board’s carbon emissions by more than 10 times.
Each Mighty Mangrove sinks down 673kg of VCS-certified CO2 during its first 25 years. Starboard claims half the carbon from the climate park projects, 336.5 kg. The other half gets sold as carbon credits for vital livelihood projects in challenged Myanmar, as well as to run the WIF Climate park.
To offset its emissions, Starboard plants 3 mighty mangrove trees per board, drawing down 3 x 336.5 kg CO2, more than 1 ton, over 25 years. This is more than 10X the board’s total carbon emissions. Furthermore, we work with WIF to offset our company’s total carbon footprint 10 times over, as well as the footprints of events we have supported. Within the next 25 years, all of Starboard’s CO2 emissions since 1994 will be absorbed, and all emissions since 2017 will be compensated for 10 x over.
We calculate and report our carbon footprint annually, aiming to be transparent about our impact on the planet and sharing how we can turn negatives into positives. Whatever Starboard you’re riding you’re helping the environment. We encourage you to share about how reforestation naturally restores the climate balance, even for Carbon intensive industries like board building.
