A New Standard for Nature-based Solutions
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.
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
Ongoing additionality evaluation
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.
Anew projects must create a climate benefit, beyond business-as-usual, that would not have occurred without the opportunity afforded through carbon finance. With Epoch™, Anew has pioneered the most intensive evaluation processes in the industry, ensuring each credit issuance reflects current economic, regulatory, and environmental conditions.
Anew quantifies emission reductions through a combination of high-frequency satellite monitoring, AI, and ground-level data collection to produce previously unachievable levels of accuracy in carbon quantification.
Improved Forest Management projects incentivize the growth of biodiverse and mature forests which are more resilient against natural disasters and disease. Our ongoing monitoring ensures rapid detection of carbon loss, facilitating our ability to immediately address and mitigate threats to the forest. Credits are generated for only a portion of the overall climate benefit achieved by each project, with a significant percentage held back for insurance.
Anew project credits are verified, both in the field and through data analysis, by the industry’s most reputable carbon auditing firms. These firms employ professional foresters and biometricians to ensure all reported emissions reductions are quantified in accordance with the relevant carbon Registry’s stringent requirements.
We work with the market’s most trusted Registries, the ACR, Climate Action Reserve (CAR), and VERRA, and develop our projects in accordance with their rigorous, peer-reviewed carbon protocols. Credits generated from our projects are tracked and listed publicly with unique serial numbers to prevent double counting.
Our nature-based projects are highly effective for carbon storage, and they intentionally enhance resilience, biodiversity, and a host of other ecosystem services. We develop our projects to benefit the wildlife and people that depend on these landscapes for habitat, clean water, fresh air, recreation, and sustainable jobs.
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
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.
