Technology at the service of the planet

We are a group of engineers, scientists and entrepreneurs with a deep love for nature and a strong drive to help solve climate change. We believe that protecting and restoring the forests represents the most effective solution to recapture carbon from the atmosphere and reverse climate change. We believe that carbon offsetting is a powerful way to drive funds to the right projects. However we think that the forest carbon market should be a lot more efficient, transparent and scalable.

We are harnessing the most advanced technologies such as machine learning, satellite and LiDAR to do just that. We use these technologies to verify and monitor forest carbon projects. Additionally, we connect forest project developers with carbon offset buyers on a transparent and efficient platform. Thus, we are helping the best companies in the world achieve carbon neutrality by supporting the most effective natural carbon projects.
