Forests are dynamic, and as they grow, they absorb the gas carbon dioxide (CO2). Through the process of photosynthesis, trees absorb CO2 and convert it into plant matter, such as leaves and wood, and release oxygen (O2) into the atmosphere. At the same time that this is occurring, CO2 is also being released into the atmosphere through respiration from plants and animals and from the decomposition of litter and soil organic matter.Vigorous growing forests absorb more CO2 through photosynthesis than is released through respiration, so a growing forest is a sink for carbon.Managing harvesting and timber productionAs trees mature and eventually die, the plant matter decomposes and is returned to the atmosphere; but if trees are harvested and turned into timber products, much of the carbon remains in storage in products such as floorboards or framing.By ensuring adequate regeneration after harvesting, the carbon in these forests effectively remains in equilibrium: the CO2 absorbed by growing trees balances the amount removed through harvesting.When you take into account the carbon that is stored in wood products made from forest trees, and the expansion of plantations onto land previously used for agriculture, we are not just maintaining equilibrium - we are taking extra carbon out of the atmosphere and having a positive effect on climate change.

Original Retail Prices: In certain circumstances, an item for sale on the site may display the manufacturers Original Retail price (ORP). All ORPs are prices supplied by the manufacturer (or retailer) of the item at the time of the items original sale, and therefore such ORPs may not be current at the time of the online auction of the item. Graysonline takes no responsibility for the display of ORPs on any item it offers for sale at an online auction on its site, and hereby advises all bidders to satisfy themselves as to the value of the item being auctioned.
Typically, auctions are over at their posted times. There are some exceptions to this, however, if there are any successful bids on a particular lot within 10 minutes of the close of the online auction (the “Going, Going, Gone! Period), it will be extended until there are no successful bids within the "Refresh Period".
There is no limit to the number of times an online auction can be extended. This makes graysonline work more like a live auction where the bidding doesn’t stop as long as there is still interest in the product, rather than assigning an arbitrary cut-off time. This means it is a good idea to watch the action as the auction nears closing time and to check back often
Yonderr only supports carbon credit projects that are registered under the global NSW Greenhouse Gas Reduction Scheme or the Verified Carbon Standard.
To be certified, offsets must be: real (have happened), measurable, permanent (not temporarily displace emissions), independently verified and unique (not used more than once to offset emissions).
We love these programs because they provide robust standards for offset projects. It makes sure the carbon offsets businesses and consumers buy are trustworthy and have real honest-to-goodness environmental benefits.
Yonderr is a happy place where you can reduce your environmental footprint through buying carbon credits. No guilt trip, no confusing jargon. Just carbon credits that are accredited and squeaky clean. We make it easy to reduce your impact on climate change by finding fabulous projects from across the world that:
Then we bring them to you – simple as that.
We're lucky to have smart parents. Yonderr is the child of CO2 Australia, a company that has established some of the largest carbon forests in Australia. We're really proud of them.
While they focus on helping big emitters manage their carbon footprints through tree planting, Yonderr is helping people and businesses do the same thing, but through a wider variety of carbon credits from all over the world.
CO2 Australia has been in the carbon business, making the planet a happier place, since 2004 - and that's a long time in a fledgling industry. They look after million-dollar projects with a fancy-pants client list that includes: Woodside Energy, Qantas Airways, Big Day Out, Newmont Mining, Kansai Electric Power and Rip Curl – cool huh?
They're here for the long run, and so are we.
The NSW Greenhouse Gas Reduction Scheme (GGAS) started on 1 January 2003. This great scheme is one of the first mandatory greenhouse gas emissions trading schemes in the world. Hooray for a true pioneer - it's like the Charles Darwin of environmental schemes!
GGAS is all about cutting greenhouse gas emissions associated with the production, and use, of electricity. It does this by using project-based activities to offset the production of greenhouse gas emissions.
The scheme allows for the creation of carbon credits by accredited providers, but only through one or more of these activities:
When a carbon credit is created, it can be purchased and sold like any other commodity. The process of retiring means the credit, and the greenhouse gas reduction it represents, is permanently taken out of the market. It doesn't get a gold watch but it can never be sold again. Once retired, each Yonderr carbon credit has a unique registration number and is listed on a formal registry. So you can check on them any time.
