Tribal Carbon Partners' Approach

Tribal Carbon Partners is responsible for every step in the process that leads to carbon revenues to insure each tribe receives the maximum value from their timberlands. Working with our partner, Finite Carbon, all project tasks are handled internally (other than verification, which California law requires be completed by an outside third party certified by the Air Resources Board), thereby avoiding project delays and maximizing the financial returns to the tribal landowner.

Here are the specific steps that TCP will be intimately involved in:

  • Conduct a feasibility study of the forest
  • Complete a carbon inventory of the forest
  • Select appropriate registry/protocol (e.g., ARB, CAR, ACR, or VCS)
  • Translate inventory into carbon model and management plan
  • Prepare and submit project plan to chosen carbon registry
  • Hire third-party project verifier once plan is accepted and registered
  • Submit project verification to registry and receive allocation of carbon offsets
  • Market & sell carbon offsets in our proprietary network or engage top brokers to broaden sales process
My Tribe’s project is in line with the sustainable forestry activities that we have practiced since time immemorial but is unique in how it allows forest landowners to benefit from an innovative program designed to curb carbon emissions. We are thrilled to be on the cutting edge of a concept that will help fund forest conservation and provide economic development for our people and we are very pleased to work with Finite Carbon and Tribal Carbon Partners as our forest carbon partner for this important tribal project.
