Find community—and cash—in forest carbon and climate conservation.
Benefit from sound science to create real environmental benefits and generate low-risk revenue.
Together, we break barriers: With the new SIG Carbon Aggregation Program, landowners with as little as 500 acres can benefit from carbon offset markets that traditionally have favored large-scale landowners.
Together, we create a new future: You get paid for your sustainable forest management practices while adding intrinsic value to your property, supporting conservation, and fighting climate change.
You are in good hands: SIG Carbon is a trusted forest carbon project developer with vast experience and solid financing. We value transparency and prioritize your interests, ensuring that you remain legally protected while benefiting from the best science and technology.

SIG will handle the monitoring requirements—we take care of you so you can take care of your trees.
Forest landowners: SIG Carbon works with a diverse array of landowners to generate income while improving forest management. From small family forest owners to national nonprofits and commercial timber operators, everyone (and the earth!) benefits from participating in forest carbon projects. We also value our tribal partners, who are the original stewards of the land, and whose Indigenous knowledge is key in informing and improving sustainable land management practices.
Program organizers: Renowned as the best scientists in the forest carbon offset market, SIG Carbon consults with key market players including the California Air and Resources Board, the Climate Action Reserve, and the American Carbon Registry to identify ways to improve offset protocols.
Credit buyers: SIG Carbon has been active in the forest carbon projects since the inception of the offset market in the early 2000s. Our consistently solid work has fostered trust among a network of credit buyers. We will work with you to sell your credits to buyers whose values resonate with your vision.
There is strong market demand for credits from forest carbon projects. Participating landowners received a total of $330 million in 2019 and a projected $1 billion in 2021, with more growth expected in coming years.
Funds generated from your carbon project can be used to drive further conservation efforts and other strategic goals, all while your enrolled forests help mitigate climate change.
Take advantage of legal and financial frameworks that provide maximum protection and transparency while allowing you to generate additional revenue streams with minimal effort and zero out-of-pocket expenses.
SIG will take on all risk and cover all upfront development costs. A monitoring fund will cover costs through the lifetime of the project, eliminating surprise expenses.
