Our Carbon Warranty
Warranty - Planeta Verde Reforestación S.A. ("PVR"), operating under the trade name of CO2 Tropical Trees and as co2tropicaltrees.com, or its contracted affiliates, will not sell carbon offsets sold under the CO2 Tropical Trees windshield decal and bumper sticker program, or under our business and fleet programs a second time. All carbon offsets generated from the tree planting of tropical trees under the CO2 Tropical Trees program will be considered to have been used and sold in the voluntary carbon credit market, and can therefore never be re-sold. This warranty applies to all tropical trees planted by PVR, operating as CO2 Tropical Trees, or its contracted affiliates, for which payment has been received pursuant to one of our CO2 Tropical Trees programs.
Stickers - The CO2 Tropical Trees windshield decals or bumper stickers supplied to customers are printed on appropriate material, in order to last one year from date of purchase.
Obligation - PVR is obligated to plant and maintain either 25 or 250 tropical trees for 10 years, depending on the type of CO2 Tropical Trees windshield decal and bumper sticker purchased by a customer. PVR is also obligated to plant and maintain the number of tropical trees purchased by a business, fleet, manufacturer, institutional or government customer for a period of 10 years or as otherwise agreed upon.
Ownership - The ownership of the tropical trees planted remains with PVR, or with PVR’s contracted affiliates. The purchase of the CO2 Tropical Trees windshield decals and bumper stickers, or the funding of tropical trees pursuant to a CO2 Tropical Trees program for carbon offsets, creates no claims against the lands on which the tropical trees are planted, or against the tropical trees themselves. The purchase of the windshield decals and bumper stickers, or the funding of tropical trees pursuant to a CO2 Tropical Trees program for carbon offsets, creates no claims against fruits or other by-products from the tropical trees. The purchase is specifically a method of making a purchaser’s vehicle or the vehicles in a fleet, or the emissions of a factory, business premises, institution or government agency carbon neutral by offsetting their CO2 emissions.
Acts of God - PVR, operating as CO2 Tropical Trees, cannot guarantee that all 25 or 250 tropical trees planted upon a customer's purchase, or that all of the tropical trees funded by a business, fleet, manufacturer, institutional or government customer will survive for 10 years, or that they will not be cut down after 10 years. However, PVR will make every reasonable effort to maintain and care for the tropical trees it plants under the CO2 Tropical Trees program, and to plant replacement trees when so required to ensure that a customer's vehicle, fleet or business premises remain carbon neutral. PVR is not responsible for acts of God, like forest fires, diseases, infestations, droughts, floods or storms, that may be so severe as to void this warranty.
Fraud - All CO2 Tropical Trees sales are carefully recorded and monitored. PVR's warranty policy does not apply to windshield decals or bumper stickers that have been copied without authorization, or which are fraudulent. PVR will take legal action for any unauthorized violation of its tree planting based products or services.
