NCX Partners with Pledge to Bring its Forest Carbon Program to New Audiences
London ,11 August 2022 — NCX, the science-driven forest carbon marketplace, has partnered with Pledge, an integrated carbon measurement and offsetting platform - to bring its solutions to a wider business audience.
NCX is proud to democratise access to carbon markets for all forest landowners, regardless of size. Traditional forest carbon markets have excluded small family landowners due to high upfront costs and long contract terms. To solve this problem, NCX designed a forest carbon program with no acre minimums, one-year contracts, and no enrollment fees for landowners. In its last commercial cycle, 577 American landowners were accepted as participants, 61% of whose enrolled properties were under 750 acres in size.
Maria Travaille, Carbon Account Manager at NCX said, “The democratisation of access value is why we are excited to be partnering with Pledge, which democratises access on the other side of the carbon market. Pledge has developed technology to ensure businesses of all sizes can take part in the carbon market and be part of the climate solution.”
NCX credits are currently available through the Pledge platform, including offsetting the carbon emissions of freightages, ecommerce purchases, fulfillments and deliveries, business or customer flights, and more. Pledge focuses on logistics and transportation and is proud to have NCX high-integrity carbon credits as an offset option.
“We are excited to be working with NCX as we share the same values in democratising access to the carbon markets, as well as creating a rapidly scalable solution to the climate emergency,” said David de Picciotto, co-founder and CEO of Pledge.
NCX is the science-driven forest carbon marketplace delivering large-scale, immediate impact for the climate and communities. By using high integrity data to generate carbon credits that connect corporations to family forests, NCX is democratizing access to markets while enabling real climate action.
