Forest Carbon Opportunity for FSC Certificate Holders

FSC has a global agreement in place with South Pole, a carbon project developer working to implement comprehensive emission reductions that create long-term business opportunities.

As part of this agreement, the two organizations are looking to identify FSC Forest Management certificate holders to develop best-in-class projects that demonstrate robust practices with respect to both forest management and carbon sequestration.

If you are an FSC-certified forest manager, you are eligible to opt-in to learn more about the opportunity.

South Pole will lead discussions with interested forest managers to describe the process around carbon certification. If the project is feasible, South Pole will negotiate a benefits-sharing agreement with the certificate holder. In most cases, South Pole covers the costs associated with project development in return for a commission on the sales of carbon credits to buyers.

If you would like to learn more, please complete this short survey from South Pole:

If possible, please complete the survey by June 23.
