Carbon

 

Given India’s Paris agreement’s obligation to cover 33% of its geographical area under tree cover by 2030, there is a huge potential to absorb a lot of carbon through industrial green cover, large scale afforestation and urban microforest systems developed by Akira Miyawaki.


An afforestation & microforestry initiative, with the objective of tapping into the opportunity of developing a network of tree cover and forest systems through urban systems as well as the rural. This will be done along with building the capacity to digitally monitor such resources in real time through unique QR codes for each sapling which will be geotagged and analysed by satellite driven datasets.


Multiple ecological services has been adopted in order to maximise the carbon absorption capacity of our interventions and at the same time attract local biodiversity. The objective is to bring landscape interventions in sync with its natural setting and therefore create a more resilient foundations for a clean and green future.

Microforest Systems

A japanese technique which incorporates a high density planting scheme in layers of shrubs, sub-trees, trees and canopy trees. With a density of more than 3 saplings per square metere, this dense vegetation maximises carbon absorption 3 folds and also incorporates more than 40 native species. This results in reduction of ambient temperatures, pollutants and attracts the local biodiversity.

Indigeneous Tree Cover

Often landscape services tend to plant exotic trees which is disconnected from its local biodiversity and ecological processes. Therefore at Grotech, we have identiied major climatic zones and catalogued indigeneous species for each of these geographies. Thus producing native Tree Covers which not only enhance the local ecology, but also enhances carbon absorption capacity of the green cover.

Catchment Rehabitilation

It is important to identify tree cover as natural fountains of the underground water table. And thus oftentimes it is important to plan the adequate locaations of such aquafers which is enabled by careful mapping of the drainage patterns of the landscape. At Grotech, holistic analysis and mapping through satellite driven datasets helps us identify the suitable locations for such biologically activated ponds and water bodies.

Industrial Solutions

Often industrial facilities in the country have multiple green conver related compliances which we at grotech understand and are able to execute the same. Moreover, Grotech has immense experience in developing aestheics by complete landscape solutions for otherwise complex settings like the industries.

Digital Carbon Tracker

The digitised database and analytics driven through it are crucial for us to predict the amount of carbon our intiiatives can sequester. Digital tracking of the same can produce significant longterm results which will not only be helpful for the communities but perhaps for policymakers too.
