Who We Are

Our Mission & Vision

The Climate Trust believes that reducing our carbon emissions and being good land stewards go hand in hand.

For over 25 years, this belief has driven all of our work. When we sustainably manage land, we’re also investing in a low-carbon economy that ensures a prosperous future for all.

And by connecting landowners and managers to carbon markets, we create an effective way for them to maintain their rural livelihoods and sustainably manage their lands for generations to come. Together, we’re pioneering solutions that begin and end with what we all care about: stewarding land.
