ClimeCo Enters Strategic Partnership with Restore the Earth Foundation


 

April 7th, 2020 (Boyertown, PA) – ClimeCo, a leader in the development and management of environmental commodities, is pleased to announce the formation of a strategic partnership with Restore the Earth Foundation, Inc. (Restore the Earth), a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization whose mission is to advance landscape-scale reforestation in the Mississippi River Basin, “North America’s Amazon.”  Born out of disaster from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, Restore the Earth has secured funding to reforest over 60,000 acres along the Gulf Coast. Their present focus is restoring a million acres in the Basin, the most ecologically degraded area in the US.

“We are confident that with ClimeCo as a partner, we will assure the successful completion of this critical reforestation,” stated PJ Marshall, Founder & Executive Director of Restore the Earth.  “Once completed, 100 million trees will be planted, 200,000,000 MT of CO2e will be sequestered and over $12 billion in economic value will be generated.  Restoration at this landscape-scale ensures that biodiversity, habitats, and communities are enhanced and supported in self-sustaining systems.”

To help fund this initiative, Restore the Earth pioneered the development of the Climate Action Reserve’s Climate Forward Reforestation methodology.  The Climate Forward program is designed to accelerate action on climate change by encouraging companies and organizations to proactively invest today in projects that mitigate future greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.  Restore the Earth’s initial project will reforest more than 5,000 acres of the historic bald cypress forest at the Pointe-aux-Chenes Wildlife Management Area in Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana, which is anticipated to sequester more than 1,000,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent.  The Climate Forward program provides a mechanism for Restore the Earth to quantify, verify, and register forecasted mitigation units (FMUs), which ClimeCo will market to voluntary buyers to help fund future reforestation efforts in the Basin.

“We are so excited to launch this partnership with Restore the Earth on what I view as the most significant reforestation program in North America, if not globally,” says William Flederbach, President of ClimeCo.  “The reforestation of North America’s Amazon is so critical to combatting climate change and provides so many additional environmental and social benefits to the region and nation.  Using the Climate Action Reserve’s Climate Forward Program is not only the best way to promote well-needed investments but is the perfect environmental instrument to align future reductions with an organization’s projected emissions.”

Third Eye Blind Honors ClimeCo at Band’s Final Summer Tour Stop

Throughout their Summer Gods Tour with Jimmy Eat World, Third Eye Blind has worked diligently to offset the outing’s carbon footprint.  To compensate for audience travel – the biggest source of carbon emissions from the tour – a portion of each ticket sold supported a US-based carbon offset project managed by ClimeCo, the American Land Conservancy, and the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.  ClimeCo provides comprehensive solutions to help reduce the environmental impact of the general public. 

To honor ClimeCo’s fervent environmental service, Third Eye Blind presented them with a tree onstage at the band’s final tour stop in Irvine, California.  The tree will be planted at FivePoint Amphitheatre as a continued reminder of their support.

If you have any questions or would like more information, please contact Danielle Pingitore at dpingitore@climeco.com.

ClimeCo is Selected as Project Developer of the Year

 

ClimeCo Corporation (ClimeCo) is pleased to announce its selection as Project Developer of the Year by the Climate Action Reserve (CAR), in recognition for the Most Registered Carbon Offset Projects in 2018.

CAR, North America’s premier carbon offset registry, presented the award to ClimeCo Corporation during CAR’s North American Carbon World (NACW) 2019 annual conference, which is currently being held in Los Angeles, CA, through April 26.  Award recipients are nominated based upon their demonstration of leadership in advancing climate solutions and strengthening carbon markets through the development of successful carbon offset projects that achieve real, quantifiable, verifiable, additional, and permanent emissions reductions.

“ClimeCo is celebrating ten years in business this year and to receive an award like this from CAR is a great gift,” said Bill Flederbach, President & CEO of ClimeCo.  “I am very proud of the team we have built over the last 10 years, our culture, our clients, the incredible volumes of greenhouse gases that we’ve reduced, and us being the leading producer of carbon credits within CAR.”

ClimeCo has worked with CAR for the past 10 years and has registered more than 16 million carbon offsets.  Their offset volume stems from reducing greenhouse gas emissions through several project types, including N2O Abatement, Destruction of Ozone Depleting Substances, Agricultural Methane Capture, and Organic Waste Composting.  It is the combination of their clients, their diversification, and the dedication of their project team that has allowed them to be the leader in carbon offset project development.

“CAR has been a tremendous partner for ClimeCo over the years,” said Derek Six, Chief Business Officer of ClimeCo.  “Their dedication to creating high-quality protocols and ensuring a crediting program of the utmost integrity aligns well with ClimeCo’s core values.  We are proud to be implementing creative and innovative emission reduction projects, and very much appreciate this recognition for our efforts.”

ClimeCo is an advisor, broker, and developer of both voluntary and compliance grade environmental commodity market products, with specialized expertise in California cap-and-trade, market advisory, transactional services, and project financing.
