A New Standard for Nature-based Solutions

Anew’s approach to nature-based projects and our commitment to quantifiable impact

Emission reduction accuracy

Anew’s Epoch Evaluation Platform™ combines the latest advancements in high-frequency satellite monitoring, AI, and ground-level data collection to deliver a new standard for accuracy and substantiation in carbon credit quantification.

Next Gen_1_Carbon Sinks

Quantifying impact in a dynamic world

Epoch™ evaluated carbon credits account for the ever-changing realities of forest management. Continual monitoring and analysis of economic, regulatory, and environmental conditions in and around each project ensure credit generation remains in-step with real emissions reductions achieved.

Dynamic project baselines, advanced monitoring

Epoch™ evaluated projects benefit from the highest assurances for additionality and baseline efficacy, new harvest monitoring capabilities, and exceed all current industry and Registry reporting requirements.

Breakthrough technology

Breakthrough technology

Epoch™ combines high-resolution imagery with the latest AI advancements to establish a new standard for accuracy in the assessment of biomass change and harvesting activities across the North American forest landscape.

Ongoing additionality evaluation

Ongoing additionality evaluation

Anew reviews each project’s performance and benefit to the climate on a recurring basis against the current economic, regulatory, and environmental conditions in that region. Project parameters are adjusted as needed to ensure that credits delivered to the market account for the actual emission reductions achieved.

Baseline efficacy

Baseline efficacy

Anew’s Epoch™ analysis of common practice silviculture within each project’s respective timber region brings unprecedented scrutiny to a project’s baseline. The review of forest management practices on comparable properties is just of one of five levels of analysis that may lead to baseline and crediting adjustments in each reporting period.

Monthly monitoring

Monthly monitoring

Projects are monitored monthly to detect forest loss from fire, storm damage, disease, or unanticipated harvest events. This adds a new layer of security, above and beyond our on-the-ground presence, to ensure that any unexpected carbon stock losses are immediately reported and accounted for.

Ground-level accuracy

Ground-level accuracy

Anew quantifies forest carbon using the best available technology and practices above and below the tree canopy. We know how trees grow in every North American ecoregion and have closely monitored each of our 120+ nature-based projects from their inception. Since our work began two decades ago, our team has hand measured over 1 million individual trees, and our forest inventory data has been called upon for government and academic research.

Ensuring integrity

The world needs our work to succeed. At Anew, we are committed to the development of projects that ensure near and long-term benefits for surrounding communities and our global society. Our projects meet the following criteria, ensuring the highest credit integrity.

Protecting today’s best carbon sinks

Rising global temperatures demand immediate and bold climate action. One of the best near-term, scalable solutions available to combat climate change is conserving and sustainably managing forestlands, which have been proven effective in both the avoidance of carbon emissions as well as the removal of carbon from the atmosphere.

The voluntary carbon market (VCM) is one of the few transition finance options that could accelerate action, scale up new technologies and connect private capital to high-potential projects in the limited time available. ... Investment today is critical, not only to mitigate carbon emissions immediately but also to build market capacity ahead of 2030 ambitions. ... limiting global warming to 1.5°C will require annual investments of over $4 trillion in global climate finance by 2030, an increase of nearly five times 2021 levels.

—World Economic Forum

New research, published in Nature Climate Change and available on Global Forest Watch, found that the world’s forests sequestered about twice as much carbon dioxide as they emitted between 2001 and 2019. ... keeping existing forests standing remains our best hope for maintaining the vast amount of carbon forests store and continuing the carbon sequestration that, if halted, will worsen the effects of climate change.

—World Resources Institute

Nature-Based Solutions can provide over one-third of the cost-effective climate mitigation needed between now and 2030 to stabilize warming to below 2 °C,. ... Nature-Based Solutions underpin the Sustainable Development Goals: they support vital ecosystem services, biodiversity, and access to fresh water, improved livelihoods, healthy diets and food security from sustainable food systems.

—UN Global Compact

Companies who used carbon credits to neutralize at least 5% of their operational emissions cut [internal] emissions twice as quickly as companies that did not purchase carbon credits at all.

Carbon Markets Work

10 million

Market-based incentives have conserved over 10 million acres in the United States over the last decade; twice the rate of conservation achieved via modern-day land trusts over the last 60 years.
