For every board, Starboard plants 3 Mangroves, offsetting the board’s CO2 emissions more than 10X over.
For every board you buy, Starboard plants 3 mighty mangrove trees with Worldview International Foundation. The 3 Mangroves draw down a total of 2019 kg CO2 (3 x 673 kg) over 25 years. Half of this (1008 kg) goes to offsetting the board’s emissions 10X over; an average emission of a Starboard is 100 kg CO2. The other half gets sold as carbon credits, where the proceeds go to supporting livelihoods in vulnerable coastal communities.
Additionally to the 3 Mangroves per board, we calculate and report Starboard’s total carbon footprint annually across scopes 1, 2 and 3. We then offset these emissions 10X over, as well as the footprints of events we have supported, leaving us to be 10X Climate Positive. Through our footprint calculations and offsetting, we aim to be completely transparent about our impact on the planet, as well as to showcase a way of turning negatives into positives.
