SIG Carbon was born from Spatial Informatics Group, an environmental think-tank consultancy. SIG was founded by four PhD students (now professors), interested in applying the science behind their research to real world problems.
Following in the DNA of Spatial Informatics Group, SIG Carbon was founded with an academic focus, rooted in the science of forest carbon and timber management. The mission of Spatial Informatics Group is to bring science to landowners to improve environmental outcomes, rather than maximizing the company’s profit. This remains the operating ethos for SIG Carbon.
Since the earliest days of the carbon market, members of our team have served as technical experts. We’ve helped to improve quantification methods, bring clarity to forest carbon inventory methods, drive remote sensing technology integration, and develop the next generation of forecasting tools for fire and carbon risk modeling.
Over the last ten years, the SIG Carbon team has expanded to include staff skilled at building software and managing projects. While we continue to advance the science underlying the markets, we’re equally focused on helping landowners make informed land use and land management decisions. We see providing end-to-end carbon development services as an extension of our mission to bring science to landowners. Not only can we provide data and detailed analyses, but we can also help landowners implement actions based on that data.
