Forest Carbon was formed in early 2007 to address the need for a locally-based, highly technical and regionally focused organization in Southeast Asia that was capable of providing solid and consistent technical services for the complete range of carbon forestry projects, public, private or NGO.
Forest Carbon specializes in both core and experimental technical services depending on the design and goals of each client, such as baseline measurement, REDD+ project design, implementation, and forest monitoring for the voluntary and emerging compliance markets in REDD+ and sustainable forest management.
Forest Carbon believes that the conservation of threatened natural forests, the reforestation of degraded forests and restoration of tropical peat lands can play a significant role in mitigating climate change. The development of transparent, additional, and scientifically rigorous methodologies are critical to the creation of a market for international forestry carbon credits.
To that extent, we firmly stand behind the development of such projects internationally and provide our expertise to help project proponents, developers and governments with the technical aspects of their projects.
Our mission is to substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions by providing scientifically rigorous technical services to project developers and stakeholders in their efforts to conserve threatened natural forests and reforest degraded areas. It is our goal to see high quality carbon forestry projects develop in Indonesia and provide a viable alternative forest use for all stakeholders.
