Engaging U.S. Landowners in Conservation with Carbon

Green Assets

Green Assets is a U.S.- based social enterprise that works with landowners to protect and improve the management of forests using carbon market incentives. Green Assets develops forest carbon projects under the California Air Resources Board’s (ARB) standard, and sells the offsets generated to compliance buyers in California’s cap and trade program.

In 2012, Green Assets was looking for a trusted partner with technical expertise to supplement its in-house capabilities as it expanded its portfolio of projects. Since 2012, TerraCarbon has supported Green Assets to develop and monitor three different forest carbon offset projects in North and South Carolina totaling 23,000+ acres. TerraCarbon’s support has included forest inventory design and analysis, as well as forest modeling to meet the requirements of the ARB forest carbon offset standard. 

With TerraCarbon’s assistance, Green Assets has successfully registered all three projects with the ARB. It has received and sold offsets from these projects to California compliance buyers, and generated critical funding to support the conservation efforts of its landowner partners.
