Protecting and expanding our carbon sinks through nature-based solutions.

Natural and working lands hold a prominent place in California’s path toward carbon neutrality, and quantification of carbon sequestration benefits is an evolving area. We are on the forefront of advancing carbon sequestration analyses in climate action planning. Understanding the magnitude and nature of existing carbon stocks and potential future sequestration opportunities from natural, working, and developed lands will be an important advancement in achieving climate goals.

We understand the importance of vegetation and soil on natural undeveloped lands, both for their contributions to community character and as healthy ecological habitats. We assist clients and communities with carbon sequestration services to assess their existing carbon stock, project future carbon stock, and identify carbon sequestration strategies and opportunities to help meet climate and conservation goals.
