Restoring the Forests to Solve Climate Change

We’re building technology to help accelerate the Forest Carbon Offset Market

  • How it works

    Satellite Real-time Verification

    We use high-definition, high-frequency satellite images to estimate carbon storage in forests and predict future deforestation or potential for forest restoration.

    Satellite Real-time Verification
  • Drone & Lidar
    Secondary Verification

    We scan forests with Drones and Lidar to obtain detailed measurements of biomass and carbon capturing potential.

    Drone & Lidar Secondary Verification
  • Machine Learning
    Carbon Calculation

    We use Deep Learning models on our data to calculate and validate Carbon Offset Certificates from verified Forest Projects.

    Machine Learning Carbon Calculation
  • Open, Auditable
    Exchange

    We connect Forest Carbon Projects with Carbon Offset Buyers directly, and provide them with tools to monitor the projects’ progress.

For land owners

If you are the owner of lands where deforestation can be avoided or reforestation can be accelerated, you might be eligible to certify carbon credits. Get in touch and find out how much money you could make and to learn about our pilot program.

For carbon buyers

If you are an organization seeking to offset your carbon emissions, our Forest Carbon Credits are the most effective and impactful way to do
so, while providing additional benefits to natural ecosystems and local communities.

About Us

Our mission is to help reduce climate change by protecting and restoring
the forests.

Pachama is an organization focused on developing technology solutions to accelerate the growth of the Forest Carbon Credits market.

Our ultimate intention is to help scale up the protection and restoration of the forests of the planet, which recapture carbon from the atmosphere reversing climate change, and are the holders of the planet’s biodiversity, keystones for maintaining planetary homeostasis.

The problem

Frameworks introduced by the United Nations allow for the certification of carbon credits from projects that avoid deforestation or accelerate reforestation. However, current methodologies for verification and exchange of these carbon credits can benefit from enhanced trust, clarity, transparency and efficiency.

The way we solve it

Combining technologies such as machine learning, satellite imaging, drones and lidar, we aim to radically improve these processes. In doing so we believe we can help channel billions of additional dollars from organizations and governments seeking to offset their carbon emissions into those protecting and restoring the forest.

We named the company Pachama, in tribute to “Pachamama”,
the goddess of Mother Earth revered by the indigenous people of South America.

In Andean mythology Pachamama represents fertility presiding over planting and harvesting, and more deeply the idea that all living beings are deeply interconnected in one web of life, “one spirit”.

We hope to honor this idea in our mission and our ways of doing things.

The company started and is headquartered in California’s Bay Area, but we are creating a globally distributed organization.
