SIG Carbon Aggregation


Find community—and cash—in forest carbon and climate conservation.
Benefit from sound science to create real environmental benefits and generate low-risk revenue.

Join fellow landowners in this new opportunity to protect forests and fight climate change at zero cost.

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.

With zero upfront cost to you, deciding to join is easy!

Who we work with

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.
