Free California Compliance Profroma
We provide a free proforma to qualified landowners interested in engaging compliance markets in the United States. We use existing forest inventory and third-party data to assess the long-term financial viability of proposed projects under the California Compliance Offset Protocol for U.S. Forests.
General Prefeasibility Assessment
We offer a low-cost desk exercise to determine the possibility of crediting for a proposed project. The prefeasibility assessment includes a basic check on additionality and a general range of crediting volume, presented in a short report.
Full Feasibility Assessment
We offer a complete feasibility study including a thorough site visit to assess all requirements for project feasibility including costs and revenues. We use a highly detailed and proven compliance checklist to ensure all elements of proposed projects are adequately examined. We document all findings, risk factors, proposed mitigation strategies and financial models in a complete feasibility report. The feasibility report is sufficient to solicit outside investment for project design and development.
Custom Feasibility Assessment
Depending on the specific needs of a particular client, we can tailor a feasibility assessment to examine specific risk factors or crediting profiles. Further, we can work to build capacity within our client's team to better enhance internal abilities to originate and filter proposed projects.
