Improving the quality of forest management, and the employment of other natural climate solutions, are among the most impactful and cost-effective ways to meet emission reduction targets. SIG Carbon hand-selects projects to develop on the carbon offset market, focusing on those that will have a real and additional impact on climate change.

We connect our clients to revenue on the carbon offset market, in exchange for their long-term commitment to implement sustainable forest management practices. With SIG Carbon, landowners meet revenue objectives, while growing resilient, healthy forests that increase carbon storage.

We manage all aspects of forest carbon projects, from assessing the financial feasibility of a project, through project development, and credit sale. Our business philosophy is rooted in two core values: making cutting-edge science accessible and actionable, and providing complete financial transparency.

Hear From Our Customers

This is a first of its kind initiative to help Northern Vermont forestland owners, managing roughly 7,500 acres, participate in the national, voluntary carbon market. It’s an incredible opportunity for us to protect this globally-significant forest, and to ensure that unfragmented forestland ownership is financially viable.
― Charlie Hancock, Board Chair of Cold Hollow to Canada
The project not only helps combat the threat of climate change and global warming, but also provides the Tribe with economic benefits which are secondary to the ecological, cultural, and spiritual benefits that we have always realized from our prized forest lands.
― Jonathan Brooks, former Tribal Forestry Director and carbon project manager for the White Mountain Apache Tribe

In order to accelerate the pace of wilderness conservation, Northeast Wilderness Trust launched the Wildlands Partnership program. The program offers local land trusts resources to conserve land, while receiving periodic income through a developing Wild Carbon™ market. Under the program, smaller properties will be aggregated into one, larger carbon project. SIG Carbon was selected to manage enrolling land trusts into the program and provide financing and project development services. Participants in the program will commit to preserving their forests in perpetuity, making the credits generated from the program the ‘gold standard’ in the carbon market.

Along with the multitude of other co-benefits forests provide, trees play a crucial role in the fight against climate change. Think of trees as solar-powered carbon capture machines. While Silicon Valley and university researchers are in labs tinkering away on man-made solutions, we also need to recognize and honor the readily-available natural climate solution right in front of us.
