We develop grasslands, IFM, and reforestation projects across the United States. Seeking to have global impact on carbon emissions and local impact on frontline communities, we are committed to selling only high-quality credits with proven additionality and co-benefits that support the land, ecosystems, and landowners.
The Climate Trust is a nonprofit developer that has been pioneering natural climate solutions in the carbon market for over 25 years.
The Climate Trust (TCT) maintains a robust voluntary and compliance carbon offset portfolio across all sectors and regions in the United States and Canada. We offer carbon offsets from both high quality projects we invest in, as well as those we develop ourselves directly with landowners. By partnering with The Climate Trust, we can support your climate action commitments by curating a portfolio that best matches your emissions reduction strategy and nature restoration goals.
