Deforestation, land degradation and improper management of natural resources presents significant environmental, social and economic risks to corporations, land owners and individuals. Land use carbon projects offer an economic solution to preserving and restoring forests by sequestering and monetizing carbon reductions.

Through the implementation and commercialization of land use carbon projects, project owners and investors are able to achieve alternative revenue streams from forestry and agroforestry projects. NatureBank brings extensive experience working in the international carbon markets including North American compliance market, international REDD and various pre-compliance and voluntary schemes. Our team has developed two of the largest forest carbon projects in the world and are currently developing projects for the California Cap and Trade program AB32.

NatureBank will continue to offer carbon management services through Offsetters and CO2OL who provide carbon management services.
