Forests are our best option for taking the urgent climate action the world needs, right now. Quality, transparency, and accountability must be at the heart of how we tap into nature's most scalable and accessible carbon capture technology.
The NCX next generation harvest deferral methodology incorporates the latest science and feedback from dozens of experts gleaned through detailed engagement and a robust public comment period.
A new approach to quantifying forest carbon: because the planet needs it.
Raising the Bar: An Overview of the NCX Next Generation Harvest Deferral Methodology
View the overview and live discussion of the NCX next generation harvest deferral methodology. Dr. Nan Pond and Dr. Spencer Meyer introduced our new approach, described what’s changed, and explained how it sets a new standard for quality in forest carbon credits.
Our new methodology is live on GitHub, an open development platform that provides a greater level of transparency and insight into how our carbon credits are made.
The GitHub platform includes reproducible code that executes crediting math as well as line by line tracking of changes to show how the approach evolves over time.
