Restoring the Forests
to Solve Climate Change

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

  • How it works

    Orbital
    Forest Survey

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

  • 2.

    Aerial Lidar
    Verification

    We harness aerial Lidar data 
to obtain detailed measurements of biomass and carbon capturing potential of forests globally.

  • 3.

    Machine Learning
    Analysis

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

  • 4.

    Open,
    Auditable Platform

    We aim to help connect Forest Carbon Projects with Carbon Offsets Buyers, and provide them with tools to monitor the project's progress.

For Forest Projects

If you are the developer of a project where reforestation can be accelerated, forest management can be improved or deforestation can be avoided we might be able to help you verify and sell carbon certificates.

Contact Us
  • Get your forest certificated to sell Carbon Credits
    Calculate the carbon storage and
    capturing potential of your forests
  • Put those credits on sale on our marketplace
    Get an estimation of the income
    potential of your forests
    as carbon offset project
  • Get a buyer and close the deal with an Smart Contract
    Get started with the process of
    verification and issuance of forest
    carbon credits

About Us

“Our Purpose is to protect our living Earth. Our Mission is to help restore nature
to solve climate change.”

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.

We are a team of engineers and scientists with a proven track record developing cutting edge technology for several industries. We are backed by some of the best technology investors in Silicon Valley.

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