EP Carbon was founded at the inception of the modern carbon markets. We have spent 15 years guiding carbon projects from concepts to impactful realities.
We create financial value through forest conservation. Our work uses carbon markets to monetize the emissions avoided when healthy forests are maintained, or removed by new growth.
6.1 Million Hectares Protected

Our Services, Your Project
We provide an early technical assessment of your project, whether it is at the concept or early development stage. This assessment helps to chart a path to credit generation from the most appropriate carbon standard.
Access to Capital
Project Finance for Development
Our technical assessments or design studies can be used to secure project finance. We can communicate with your preferred investment partner, or facilitate the presentation of your project to our network of capital providers.
Designing High Quality Projects
We build projects using our quality and integrity principles to ensure a highest quality, lowest risk path to development. We start with a feasibility or design study to evaluate your development options. We can help access funding to build the best option.
Strengthening Viable Projects
We couple every project design with a risk mitigation plan to address gaps and uncertainties. This assists projects to prepare for a rapid and efficient development, and build the confidence of investors, community members, and credit buyers.
Bringing Projects to Market
We provide carbon technical development and monitoring support, to ensure your project translates on-the-ground work into the analyses and documentation required to successfully generate credits both immediately and in the long-term.
Quality Projects, Impactful Credits
EP Carbon develops projects that withstand external scrutiny of their climate and community benefits. We believe that carbon markets can deliver value to vulnerable people and places, but only when development processes are rigorous and transparent.
We ensure that projects reach the market delivering real impact.
EP Carbon requires a strong body of evidence to prove projects are additional. We conduct a rigorous assessment to ensure there are insurmountable barriers to project activities such that they would not occur without carbon revenue. This confirms the real climate benefit of your projects.
EP Carbon has a systematic approach to baseline scenario analysis with requirements for each project category. We target high risk areas and apply an objective risk analysis to ensure credibility. We use jurisdictional baselines, and ensure projects are compared to the best "without the project" scenario.
Accurate Climate and Co-Benefits
EP Carbon requires projects to design activities that produce verifiable climate and community benefits. We support project proponents in this process with work plans that design monitoring practices, measure their results, and give transparency to stakeholders and credit buyers.
EP Carbon believes that we need both short-term and long-term climate solutions. We believe that forests can be a long-term solution, if projects are well planned and have strong community support. We work with our partners to build projects that will be operated for decades and manage natural risks.
EP Carbon’s mission is to promote benefit sharing for vulnerable people and places. We require projects to incorporate stakeholder feedback in the project’s design and benefit sharing plans. Throughout a project’s lifetime, EP Carbon helps monitor projects to ensure equitable distribution of these benefits.
EP Carbon respects the confidentiality of our projects during development, but we ask for transparency with regard to analyses and materials upon project registration. Projects benefit when stakeholders and the public can examine documents and calculations, and understand clearly the distribution of benefits.
Who we partner with:
We work with forest owners and NGOs to design, finance and implement carbon projects.
Carbon credits can fund the conservation of your forest while providing a long-term source of revenue. Our projects reduce carbon emissions from forests through sustainable conservation and restoration activities.
Healthy forest ecosystems sustain biodiversity, water quality, skilled jobs, and other community benefits, including funding for schools.
We bring conservation finance to forests throughout the world.
The Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve Project
The Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve Project protects 640 square kilometers of critical orangutan habitat while channeling carbon revenues into impact activities that promote socioeconomic growth for tens of thousands of people.
REDD+ Project for Caribbean Guatemala
Each year, hundreds of local farmers join to conserve regional forests that provide carbon revenues for health care, education and technical extension. As the first grouped project of its kind, the REDD+ Project for Caribbean Guatemala is a model of smallholder engagement to create impact at scale.
Mutatá REDD+ Project
Empowering indigenous communities, the Mutatá REDD+ Project strengthens self-governance and control of forest resources. Carbon revenues from avoided forest loss are reinvested within communities to finance sustainable agriculture, education and employment.
How it Works
We work with standards that provide access to top markets for projects around the world.
