The Finite Carbon Difference

Finite Carbon’s unique end-to-end solution for landowners provides quick access to carbon markets. With an in-house team of forest carbon experts who are industry leaders with demonstrated experience in each step of the forest carbon project cycle, we offer the expertise and resources for successful implementation of forest carbon inventories, protocol selection, project design, verification management, and monetization of carbon offsets.

We provide the capital to get forest carbon projects developed and approved at little to no cost to the landowner. Once a project is successfully registered and approved, Finite Carbon is compensated with a minority percentage of the registered offsets. Post approval, a landowner receives market insight, offset sales support, training, and ongoing project monitoring.

Our unique model aligns incentives with each landowner so that both parties have the same goals – a successful carbon offset project with the maximum allowable carbon sold at the highest price without losing sight of a landowner’s unique needs. Ultimately, the risks associated with developing and registering the forest carbon offset project are shifted from the landowner to Finite Carbon whose capital and expertise ensure long term success.

Our Process

Finite Carbon is responsible for every step in the process that leads to carbon revenues. There is an in-house industry expert for each step (other than verification, as that task must be performed by an outside third party, whom we will hire and pay). Here are the specific steps:

  • Conduct a feasibility study of the forest
  • Complete a carbon inventory of the forest
  • Select appropriate registry/protocol (e.g., ARB, CAR, ACR, or VCS)
  • Translate inventory into carbon model and management plan
  • Prepare and submit project plan to chosen carbon registry
  • Hire third-party project verifier once plan is accepted and registered
  • Submit project verification to registry and receive allocation of carbon offsets
  • Market & sell carbon offsets in our proprietary network or engage top brokers to broaden sales process
