About Carbon Rho

Our Vision is Clear

To become a trusted advisor concerning management of natural capital for landowners, leveraging their inherent ecological value, and to establish ourselves as the trusted source of carbon credits for corporate clients committed to a science-based, net-zero emission strategy.

Purchasing "Credits" for a Greener Tomorrow

We offer carbon credits sourced from our conservation pool of Natural Climate Solutions, catering to businesses determined to leverage nature-based solutions as part of their net-zero emission strategy. Every project we undertake undergoes a meticulous third-party validation and verification process, ensuring that the credits, meet stringent criteria for permanence and quality.

Our close collaboration with certification organizations and standards bodies guarantees that every credit bearing their name complies with the industry’s best practices. Upon retirement against an emission, each credit provides a 1-metric ton “offset” that effectively balances emissions produced in one location with reductions or removals achieved elsewhere.

Investing in voluntary offsets not only enhances a company’s sustainability efforts but, for publicly traded firms, it can also positively impact their Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) rating, which, in turn, influences capital access and costs
