Deferring timber harvests to enhance climate resiliency, increase access to carbon markets, and combat global warming.
Sky Harvest delivers a century's worth of climate impact this year. This innovative project uses tonne-year accounting which brings future carbon storage benefits into the present by increasing the volume of carbon in each credit and eliminating any non-permanence risk.
It also taps entirely new sources of supply by creating greater access for landowners of all sizes to participate in carbon markets. Beyond carbon, this credit has various co-benefits for rural communities, biodiversity, and other ecosystem services. Yearly verification ensures that the climate impact has been achieved, while data-driven additionality tests that screen landowners for historical timber operations demonstrate that these deferrals would not occur without carbon finance.
Sky Harvest credits have an approach that also helps further nine of the seventeen UN Sustainable Development Goals.
