Our voluntary programs are targeted at organizations that anticipate a moderate demand for offsets; more than 10,000 metric tons per year.
The Trust works with first time buyers and market veterans; bringing expertise and flexible purchase agreements to our clients. Our partnerships include companies building voluntary sustainability programs, as well as covered entities in California and other compliance markets.
The Trust, via its investment fund administered by Climate Trust Capital, is actively developing a portfolio of high-quality, affordable carbon offsets from projects that are likely to be recognized under state, regional or federal climate rules and regulations—focusing in the high-impact sectors of forestry, grassland conservation, and livestock digesters. Preferred projects have a high likelihood to generate positive social or economic impacts that will benefit the communities local to our clients. Issued carbon credits will meet rigorous third party standards, including ARB, CAR, ACR and VCS.
Helping our clients to reduce their emissions also helps us to achieve our mission. Our ultimate goal is identifying and inspiring the best climate solutions in the market—we do this by innovating and enhancing sectors with the highest potential for positive climate impacts.
