As the number-one provider of high-quality carbon credits, we aim to connect every American landowner to net-zero leaders.
The Road To Verification
We are working with Verra to certify the integrity of our carbon credits
NCX has received concept note acceptance from Verra on the methodology titled “Methodology for IFM/ERA through Targeted, Short-Term Harvest Deferral” for calculating the climate impact of forest carbon.
Quality and Real Impact at Scale
Remote sensing-assisted inventory methods ensure the quality – and reduce the costs – of verification and monitoring of forests. With this method, forests of all sizes can participate in forest carbon markets. NCX partners with small landowners, TIMOs, REITs, consulting foresters, and universities to ensure no forest is left out of the climate solution.
Delivering Verifiable Results
The use of a ton-year accounting method enables greater landowner participation while allowing NCX to credit upon delivery. Measurements done at the start and at the end of an enrollment year verify the intended climate impact occurred. When combined with our acre-by-acre assessment for accurate baselines, this approach increases certainty for buyers and sellers. We believe this year-by-year method is key to unlocking scale and quality, that’s why we are working with Verra to certify the approach.
Collaboration for Innovation
We are leading the conversation on forest carbon to ensure its potential to drive real, lasting climate impact is fully realized. Our relentless focus on evolving our datasets, accuracy of our baseline estimates, and advancement of methodologies with third-party verifiers is helping companies to achieve their net-zero goals with the reassurance of unmatched quality standards.
The Carbon Markets: Legacy VS. NCX
How NCX Works
4 Simple Steps
The landowner creates an NCX account and receives a property assessment. Carbon credit buyers work with an NCX sales rep to define their offset goals.
NCX assesses a landowner’s property for carbon sequestration potential. Landowners enroll their properties Companies confirm their commitments.
NCX matches landowners and net zero leaders. Baseline measurements are taken of every acre of property. During the contracted year, landowners defer timber harvests.
Harvest deferral is verified with satellite imagery and ground measurements by NCX staff and third-party verifiers. Payment is issued to landowners and carbon credits are delivered to net-zero leaders.
