Conserving old forest habitats on private timberlands of Coastal British Columbia with nature-based carbon credits.
The BigCoast Forest Climate Initiative is a carbon crediting opportunity like no other – a detailed forest management plan focused on deferring the harvesting of nearly 40,000 hectares of private forestland throughout Coastal British Columbia, Canada. By committing managed forests into conserved ecological areas, we increase carbon retention and reduce greenhouse gases (GHGs).
A portion of the proceeds of the sale of BigCoast Forest carbon credits will benefit Indigenous Protected and Conserved Areas (IPCA) Innovation Program and the Pacific Salmon Foundation to support scientific and First Nations cultural research on and around the project lands.
