Services

TerraCarbon works with non-profit organizations, companies, government agencies, and multilateral organizations

 

 

 

 

 

 

to generate carbon finance for forest and wetland conservation. We provide a broad range of consulting services to support forest and wetland carbon project development, offset purchases, and program design and evaluation.

For Buyers

For many organizations, reducing or eliminating their carbon footprint is a way to demonstrate environmental responsibility and sustainability to customers and employees that want to be part of the solution, and not part of the problem. Increasing energy efficiency and switching to renewables sources of energy are important, but alone, they’re often not enough to fully eliminate carbon emissions.

For Donor Organizations

We understand that developing new markets for environmental services means building tools and rules that underpin the functioning of these markets. It also means evaluating current approaches to determine if they have are effective and where new opportunities lie.

 

With more than 12 years of firm experience, and more than 30 projects advised, TerraCarbon brings an experienced and practical perspective to help donor organizations support the development of the carbon markets for forest and wetland conservation.

For Project Developers 

We know…financing conservation isn't easy. Sure, you can ask for donations, apply for grants, and seek funding from government programs. But it is often not enough, or available over the long-term.

 

TerraCarbon has helped non-profits and social enterprises raise funding from carbon markets to implement more than 30 forest and wetland conservation projects around the world. In most cases, this funding will continue for decades and provide crucial income to help pay for ongoing project costs.

 

Our services for project developers include:

Feasibility

Before investing in the development of a carbon project, we tell you the potential amount of carbon finance that could be generated from your project, identify potential challenges and risks, and give you a detailed plan for pursuing carbon project development.

 

Design and Monitoring

If you decide to pursue carbon project development, we prepare the necessary technical analyses and documentation to register and monitor your project. Our support includes forest and soil inventories, forest growth modeling, and baseline modeling.

 

Marketing

After your project is designed and monitored, we help market and sell your carbon offsets. Our support includes reaching out to potential buyers and helping negotiate the best price and terms and conditions of any offset sales.

Methodology development

We help develop methodologies for individual projects as well as jurisdictional programs that expand opportunities for
landowners and managers to fund conservation measures through the carbon markets.

 

Program evaluation

We help evaluate the results of carbon-based or other programs designed to reduce deforestation so that donors and government agencies can assess outcomes and allocate future funding to the most effective measures.

 

Research and analysis

We help support research and analysis into the carbon/climate benefits of forest and wetland conservation and restoration to build policy support and provide useful data that supports carbon project development.

Carbon offsets

provide companies with another tool to reduce carbon emissions, and to transform the world by putting a price on carbon and placing a value on nature’s forests and wetlands and their ability to absorb and store carbon.

 

Offsets

TerraCarbon connects offset buyers to leading conservation organizations and social enterprises that are protecting forests and wetlands across the world. We do not charge offset buyers for making these connections as we have already been hired by our project developer clients to find offset partners. Our model of facilitating direct relationships between buyers and conservation organizations results in better pricing for buyers and in more funding and impact that reaches projects on the ground.
