Mission Statement

Building upon a legacy of innovation and leadership in the carbon market, The Climate Trust accelerates the pace of carbon mitigation through conservation finance. We value air, water and soil through investment, development, purchase and sale of qualified offsets and a relentless investment in people and projects with environmental purpose.

Description

The Climate Trust, a quickly growing non-profit based in Portland, OR, is a national leader in the development and promotion of high quality greenhouse gas offset projects. We are committed to staving off a disastrous rise in global temperatures by accelerating the pace of carbon mitigation through increased deployment of conservation finance. To accelerate the pace of project development, we have found that early-stage funding is critical-offering greater potential for impact and supporting the scaling of low-carbon initiatives.

Climate Trust Capital, an independent firm of The Climate Trust, launched a first-of-its-kind fund to channel large volumes of financing into early-stage projects that will create real and permanent reductions and generate verifiable offsets. We are currently deploying the funding of our pilot fund in our preferred sectors-forestry, grassland conservation, and livestock digesters. We plan to incorporate additional sectors as our investment fund scales and move beyond the borders of the U.S. in the longer term.

To-date, The Trust’s positive environmental impact is equivalent to the carbon sequestered by 3,286,765 acres of U.S. forests in one year.
