What we do.
We use forests to fight climate change.
Our foresters measure the carbon stored within each and every family forest we work with. We use scientifically proven methodologies to quantify the carbon stored within these forests.
We develop forest carbon management plans that describe how to improve and increase the carbon stored in each forest through careful forest management.
All of our forests are monitored and measured regularly, allowing for refinement of management plans and tracking of stored carbon.
We connect these forests with climate conscious consumers who want to know their purchases are helping to solve this global challenge.
What we offer.
Putting our climate forests to work for you.
What is Carbon Offsetting?
While old and healthy forests are the best way store carbon, forests that are regularly clearcut store little. Right now, forest managers and owners only get paid when their forests are cut down and turned into logs. This encourages the wholesale harvesting of forests at a younger and younger age, and a consequent loss of carbon.
Carbon offsets reverse that trend. By measuring and monitoring the amount of carbon stored in a forest through time, carbon offsets make payments to landowners for the additional amount of carbon that their forests store. This allows people and companies that need to emit carbon today to pay forest managers to pull that carbon back out of the air and keep it locked up in healthy, diverse forests.
Carbon offsets are not a complete solution to climate change. They are, however, one tool that can be implemented, today, to pull carbon back out of the air, keeping carbon concentrations low and buying us time to develop the technology and infrastructure necessary to get to zero emissions by mid-century.
What We Do.
Using robust, internationally recognized protocols, Climate Forests is able to measure, account for and development management strategies for the generation of carbon offsets on forest lands.
The Climate Forest Company has the expertise to certify and create carbon offsets from healthy forests. We advise clients in all aspects of the process, including scoping and business planning of potential projects, project design, managing Validation and Verification processes and project operation. In addition, we are able to help clients who want to take their own action to protect and preserve forests to directly offset the carbon emitted by their own business operations.
