Swiss Forest Climate Protection Project
Climate Protection Project Oberallmig, Swiss Forest

Forest management may allow Annex I countries of the Kyoto Protocol (industrial countries and countries with economies in transition) to produce carbon credits worth hundreds of millions of euros. But who benefits from value generated? The forest owners? The government? And what are the risks involved? In the first commitment period of the Kyoto Protocol CO2 sinks from forest management was allocated to the national greenhouse gas inventory (Industrialized countries).


The Oberallmig climate protection project, forest of the Oberallmeind cooperative in Canton Schwyz, stores carbon in biomass of the forest. Additional storage of carbon (CO2) in addition to existing storage is a suitable climate protection measure. By a moderately increasing wood reserves to 300m3/ha within 30 years, more than 240,000 tonnes of CO2 will be stored in wood. The Swiss climate protection project is committed to reducing logging over the next 30 years. At the same time, the project ensures the function of the forest, i.e. protection against natural hazards, timber production, biodiversity, etc. The primary goal of the climate protection project is to create an additional CO2 sink in addition to the existing sustainable management. The project size is 9031 hectares and is located in the heart of Switzerland. The Oberallmeindcooperative (OAK) Schwyz is one of the oldest and largest cooperative in Switzerland.
