Go Beyond The Well-Traveled Path

Project Development

ClimeCo’s projects team leads numerous environmental development and investment efforts with partners that strive to be successful and responsible in today’s markets. Our projects don’t just reduce or avoid environmental emissions and waste – we strategically target sectors at the cutting edge of commodity production. Whether it be creating a project in hard-to-abate or historically underrepresented sectors, utilizing innovative and high-impact solutions, or implementing ambitious nature-based solutions that have benefits far beyond the positive impact on the environment, our goal is the same: to find a sustainable balance with markets and the environment.

The Importance of Protecting & Restoring Peatlands

Peatlands are a type of acidic wetland ecosystem in which the soil is so waterlogged that anaerobic conditions occur. This inhibits the decomposition of dead plant matter, causing an accumulation of peat, which is made up of partially decayed plant matter and is rich in carbon. 

Forest Management Strategies for Creating Carbon Offsets

We know forest carbon accounting can be complex, but transparency is crucial to ensure the credibility and effectiveness of NBS project types in mitigating carbon emissions. Improved Forest Management can increase avoidance & removal of carbon emissions through planned activities over business-as-usual projections.

Blue Carbon 102

Through exploring how blue carbon differs from ‘regular’ carbon, which ecosystems sequester it, and the interwoven community and biodiversity benefits, it’s clear that blue carbon projects have a fundamental role in addressing and mitigating climate change.

Blue Carbon 101

On the fringes of Earth’s continents lies one of nature’s greatest climate regulation mechanisms: vast reserves of organic carbon known as blue carbon. “Blue carbon” refers to the organic carbon captured and stored in coastal and marine ecosystems and can be used to refer to the marine habitats that sequester and store carbon dioxide.
