We can help you bring your carbon project to market, from the initial evaluation to execution of the carbon contract, to guiding you through the verification process. EFM has deep expertise in the emerging forest carbon market, with successful projects in methodology development and project development. We have strong relationships with forest landowners, project developers, buyers and brokers, verifiers and certifiers.

Among other activities, EFM assisted Ecotrust in developing the first Improved Forest Management protocol under the Voluntary Carbon Standard. We also listed the first forestry project outside of California under the Climate Action Reserve on behalf of Ecotrust Forests, LLC. We have worked with numerous private and public landowners, including tribes, to understand, value, and monetize their forest carbon resources.
