Woodland Carbon Guarantee Survey

Closed 31 Jan 2023

Opened 4 Jan 2023


You are receiving this survey because you have registered one or more projects with the Woodland Carbon Code but have not entered any or all of your project(s) into the Woodland Carbon Guarantee (WCaG). 

The WCaG does not place any obligations on applicants. It provides an option to sell Woodland Carbon Units (WCUs) from your project to government at an index linked guaranteed price that is set at auction. If a project proposer is successful at a WCaG auction and enters into a WCaG contract, the proposer still retains complete flexibility to choose to sell their WCUs on the open market or to the government at the agreed sale points.

Why your views matter

We want to make the Woodland Carbon Guarantee as accessible as possible and would really value your feedback on how it could be improved.
