Microsoft, Bank of America, and the City of Austin, Texas, are all buying credits or funding projects with credits issued by City Forest Credits. Fishermen’s Finest, located in King County, recently purchased carbon credits derived from a protected forest in Washington State -- producing local economic, social, and environmental benefits. If your company or organization wants to deliver visible and quantified environmental benefits to targeted cities or communities, you can also do this reliably and efficiently.
Carbon+ Credits are nationally standardized units of value developed by a national drafting group that includes leading scientists in the field (see "Who We Are"). The Credits represent real trees -- planted or preserved -- that result in quantified carbon storage, storm water reduction, air quality benefits, and energy savings, along with the many other benefits. And these benefits are delivered to cities and towns where your customers and employees live and work.
Why Our Credits Are Valuable:
They offset carbon emissions, i.e. reduce your carbon footprint: each Credit contains a quantified metric ton of CO₂ and constitutes a tradeable carbon credit.
Your company or organization will receive Credits that deliver the triple bottom line of environmental, social, and economic benefits. Our Carbon+ Credits quantify the benefits in resource units and dollars so that your shareholders or stakeholders can see in metrics how your sustainability dollars make a local impact.
If your company is working toward water neutrality, our quantification of storm water runoff reduction may allow you receive a highly charismatic credit that helps you achieve water neutrality goals while also delivering the climate mitigation of carbon storage and energy savings from cooling.
Employee engagement -- your employees can adopt a project and directly contribute to the greening of their city or town.
If you have CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) goals, these Credits enable you to deliver a documented social and environmental impact.
Investing in these credits gives you visibility in your community and benefits your marketing goals, all while giving back to your community with something everyone loves — trees!
