As a pioneer in the commercialization of forest based carbon offsets, Carbon Conservation has successfully created, validated and sold more than a million tons of abatement to Rio Tinto Aluminum in 2007 through its wholly owned subsidiary The Carbon Pool. This project, the world’s first commercial deal for REDD+ (Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation), was synchronized with the National Carbon Accounting Scheme (NCAS) of Australia and registered with the Australian Government’s Greenhouse Office under the Greenhouse Friendly Scheme.
Carbon Conservation worked with the government of Aceh Province, Indonesia, to develop the Ulu Masen Ecosystem Project, a REDD+ initiative that became the world’s first REDD+ project to be independently validated under the standards of the Climate, Community and Biodiversity Alliance. This globally recognized project resulted in Environmental Finance Magazine’s Carbon Deal of the Year in 2008,
