We support projects that conserve forests.

EP Carbon leverages carbon markets to finance conservation projects throughout the world.

Mirova Natural Capital Acceleration

Working with MNC, we provide accelerated access to private capital to scope, launch and operate projects: conservation, restoration and agroforestry.

We create financial value through forest conservation. Our work uses carbon markets to monetize the avoided emissions when healthy forests are maintained.

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 identify technical considerations, risks, projected returns and financing requirements.

    We connect you with investors and assist with due diligence.

  • Socialize the project

    We help you to obtain any required free, prior and informed consent from stakeholders.

  • Attract buyers

    We document your story and sell it to potential credit buyers for premium pricing.

  • Implement activities

    We collaborate on an implementation plan that you execute.

  • Measure, validate, and verify impacts

    We identify monitoring indicators that you track. Then, we document impact and facilitate a third-party audit.

  • Register and deliver credits

    We help you with the paperwork to fulfill purchase agreements. We assist with ongoing measurement, documentation and verification. Depending on the complexity of activities, it may take between six months and two years to deliver initial credits.

Project financing

We start with a feasibility and design assessment to determine the full cost of a project.

For ideas with the most potential impact, we have dedicated funding to cover the assessment cost. The feasibility and design assessment not only accurately determines the cost of a project, but can also attract potential investors.

Financing requirements to develop and implement the projects vary, depending on factors including the complexity of the activities. Development and implementation costs may range from US $50K to US $3M or more.
