Factors for Carbon Dioxide Emission Offsets
  • 2,000 pounds carbon stored = 1 short ton of carbon stored

  • 1 short ton of carbon stored = 0.9072 metric tons of carbon stored

  • 1,000 pounds carbon stored = 0.454 metric tons of carbon stored

  • 1 metric ton of carbon stored = 3.67 metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emission equivalent

  • 1 metric ton of carbon stored = 1.102 short tons of carbon stored

  • 1 metric ton of carbon stored = (3.67)*(1.102) = 4.044 short tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) emission equivalent

  • 1 hectare = 2.4711 acres

  • tonne = 1 metric ton

  • 1 cubic foot = 0.028316 cubic meters

  • 1 Megagram (Mg) = 1,000 Kilograms (Kg) = 1,000,000 grams (g) = 1 metric ton = 1 tonne

  • 1 Gigatonne (Gt) = 100 Megatonnes (Mt) = 1,000 Kilatonnes(Kt) = 100,000,000 tonnes
