The Company estimates that the lifecycle growth of these trees will sequester 12,836 Tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere. With these estimates the Company is 10X carbon negative for 2022, sequestering 10X more carbon from the atmosphere than the sum of Company emissions from all sources.

"The company calculates that during Q3 of 2022 its operations released 203,154 kg (203.154 Tonnes) of CO2 emissions from all sources compared with 274,523 kg (274.523 Tonnes) in Q2 2022," stated Christopher Berlet, CEO of Stakeholder.

"This year we have undertaken a rewilding and reforestation tree planting initiative on a property that had been clear cut in the Botsford Area of New Brunswick, Canada. Our calculations support that the lifecycle sequestration of carbon from the 32,089 native species trees which we have planted will exceed by a factor of 10 the sum of carbon emissions from all sources of our business in 2022. This would mean that the company is carbon negative for 2022 by a factor of 10X, sequestering 10 times more carbon from the atmosphere with our tree planting initiatives than the sum of carbon that is released by all sources from corporate activities."
