The Voluntary Carbon Market is a strategic opportunity for the host governments to:
access climate finance on your own terms
work with private sector companies as equal partners, not as donors
use conservation to fund self-determined development while contributing to global climate and sustainability goals
fund national and local development at a level that is transformative and has generational impacts
Why partner with us?
Wildlife Works is a leader in designing nested REDD+ projects that ensure host countries can use this funding mechanism to meet their policy, climate, conservation and development goals.
We have a 25 year track record that has made us the trusted partner to forest communities and governments.
As globally recognized experts in REDD+, we are trusted consultants to governments interested in national REDD+ frameworks that nest projects into their jurisdictional programs.
We facilitated the ERPA signing between the World Bank FCPF Carbon Fund and the Government of the DRC, making the Mai Ndombe ER Program the first program in the world to successfully nest a project within a jurisdictional program.
Our revenue share model aims to support host countries’ goals to provide economic and social development for local communities through fair revenue share agreements, while financing the host country’s ambitions towards a green transition.
WELL DEFINED BUT FLEXIBLE PROCESS
We have a tried and true project development and implementation process that allows us to tailor to the needs and culture of each location while also working efficiently to begin generating revenue from the project for our in-country partners.
STRONG SALES AND FINANCING
We have a exceptional and direct sales strategy through our exclusive sales company, Everland Marketing that identifies and builds long-term relationships with climate-ambitious corporate customers and investors. We have funding in place with Hartree Partners to develop a new portfolio of 20 projects around the world that will reduce emissions by 20 million tons CO₂e per year and provide USD $2 billion in finance.
RIGOROUS AND EFFECTIVE BASELINES
We designed a novel method for baseline allocation that distributes national Forest Reference Emission Levels (FREL) according to future risk of deforestation. This method of nesting projects into jurisdictional programs ensures that national governments can effectively use the Voluntary Carbon Market to concentrate the financial incentives in forest areas with the highest risk while contributing to their National Determined Contributions.
