Refined Purpose, Bold New Look!

Published: October 14, 2014 by Editorial Team

The Climate Trust team is delighted to unveil a new look today, including a redesigned website that showcases our meaningful work and underscores our role as a quality leader in the carbon market. But this isn’t just about updating our look, we are proud to announce a refined business model, offering greater potential for impact through investments in critical early-stage projects and the winning people behind them.

Since 1997, The Climate Trust has been meeting the unique needs of utilities and their stakeholders, while administering the first legislation in the nation to curb carbon emissions. While our commitment to accelerating greenhouse gas reductions through these core services endures, our organization has evolved significantly in the last decade.

Under our new Carbon Investment Management Organization (CIMO) model, The Trust provides capital to projects in our preferred sectors—agriculture, forestry, biogas—that will generate offsets. Our active involvement with project developers ensures healthy yields of credits and fruitful revenues from the sale of the environmental credits.

We believe our new website and blog raises our visual identity to match the caliber of our ambitious new objectives and underscores the importance of our mission and the innovative work that happens daily at The Trust.

With an eye towards transparency, the new website—developed in conjunction with Portland-based Illusio Design— shares resources, such as our latest publications and information on our organizational culture, as well as a clear delineation of our services and how to work with The Trust. It also highlights our trusted partners, along with providing a comprehensive map of projects in our portfolio.

We hope you find the new website to be more engaging, easier to navigate, and more accessible from all of your electronic devices. We think the modern design complements our focused strategic direction and better reflects the creative and collaborative culture here at The Trust.
