Carbon additionality is used to calculate the extent to which a project or activity results in net greenhouse gas emissions savings or sequestration above and beyond those that would have occurred even if the project had not taken place. Forest Research carried out a thorough review of the principles and methodologies for additionality assessments, providing the Forestry Commission with an evidence base for its Woodland Carbon Code.
