How does it work?
Landowners choose the payment levels at which they want to participate. Carbon credit buyers do the same. This determines the market price of carbon.
The first auction will be in early 2021.
Over the annual contract term, landowners harvest less volume than they ordinarily would have, increasing the amount of carbon stored in the forest landscape.
Upon verification of the results, landowners are paid for the additional carbon stored on their property.
Buyers receive carbon credits in return, which can then be retired to achieve their carbon goals.
