A Place for Offsets in the New Climate Reality?
As the price and demand for carbon offsets increases, more and more landowners will be willing to manage in accordance with sustainability criteria in exchange for carbon offset revenue. Greater landowner participation will lead to the overall resiliency of forest and range land ecosystems.
Pacific Northwest Forests: Carbon Sink or Carbon Source?
Forests are critical in our efforts to stem the effects of climate change. Yet, in the Pacific Northwest, uncharacteristic megafires are emitting large amounts of greenhouse gasses. Active forest management and restoration in the PNW are critical in ensuring that our forests continue to function as carbon sinks.
“We anticipate an increased selection of quality offsets from livestock digester projects will soon become available as part of The Trust’s new carbon investment fund pipeline; helping to meet our growing demand. NW Natural looks forward to continuing our longstanding relationship with The Trust—a carbon manager that shares our values and goals for Oregon.”
