The path to meeting our climate challenge
Forest ecosystems store vast amounts of carbon. Protecting them from further deforestation and degradation is critical to addressing climate change.
Trees are the lungs of the earth, breathing in Co2 and breathing out oxygen. Planting and managing trees is an important climate change solution.
Efficient monitoring and verifying of forests through new technology provides the data we need to hit key carbon drawdown milestones.
Welcome to Earth Plus
Why go climate positive with Earthbanc?
We harness AI technology to scale carbon removal through forests
Improving Carbon Verification
Many carbon offsets have been proven to be inaccurate, by up to 50% or in some cases 100% which means not all carbon offset and credit products should be considered equivalent. Earthbanc is the first climate fintech company to partner with the European Space Agency to use Satellite and Remote Sensing AI to measure the actual amount of carbon in offsets projects such as forests, agriculture, solar, wind and efficient cookstoves.
We developed the technology so that you can buy carbon offsets with confidence in the accuracy and precision of the carbon being claimed in the offset.
We help smallholders and large forests alike, to monetise their carbon nature-based solutions.
Did you know that carbon projects generally can’t verify or monetize carbon in trees and soil unless you have at least 1,500 - 8,000 acres to measure? Earthbanc's AI measures and verifies land areas of forest and soil carbon as small as 200 m2 using high resolution imagery where available, from European Space Agency, NASA & private providers.
That’s up to an 18,000 - 80,000-fold increase in efficiency - scaling up reforestation, and delivering social impact through improved carbon market access. Our verified forests generate carbon micro-payments to local communities through our innovative digital payment technology partnerships, connecting and rewarding people for regenerating the planet.

Projects you are supporting
Protecting and restoring forest, mangrove and wetland ecosystems is a critical part of systemic climate action. But their carbon storing benefits are only one part of the story.
At Earthbanc we support local communities by helping them monetize the carbon value of their forest homelands. This strengthens their livelihoods and incentivizes their continued protection of the forests.
Your Earth Plus plan protects some of the world's most prolific ecosystems, including mangroves in the Sundarbans, rainforests in Costa Rica and cloud forests in the Himalayas. These sites are recognized biodiversity hotspots, providing critical habitat to Bengal tigers, jaguars, sloths and pumas, to name a few. Whilst the Sundarbans is the earth's largest terrestrial store of blue carbon.
At Earthbanc we focus on scaling up tree planting through effective management and incentivisation. Our mangrove planting projects have a demonstrated 96% survival rate - that's over double the average rate of 40%. How do we achieve that? By sharing.
Typically, people are paid a one-time fee to plant trees and the monetary carbon value (the yield) of the trees, is kept by the project developer. In contrast, Earthbanc shares the yield 50/50 with the people who plant and manage the trees.
This is a significant incentive for local communities, of up to three years salary for local communities. Earth Plus offers an approach to carbon offsetting that leads to systemic protection and regeneration.
Why offset with Earthbanc?
Climate change is one of the most significant threats to the lives and livelihoods of generations of people and animals alike. The solutions exist, but they’re not being implemented fast enough to avoid catastrophic climate impacts.
Many carbon offsets have been proven to be inaccurate, by up to 50% or in some cases 100% which means not all carbon offset and credit products should be considered equivalent. Earthbanc is the first climate fintech company to partner with the European Space Agency to use Satellite and Remote Sensing AI to measure the actual amount of carbon in offsets projects such as forests, agriculture, solar, wind and efficient cookstoves. We developed the technology so that you can buy carbon offsets with confidence in the accuracy and precision of the carbon being claimed in the offset.
At Earthbanc we’re setting out to neutralise climate change by empowering everyday people and businesses, to participate in bold and systemic climate action in order to protect life.
Trees — both planting new trees, and protecting the forests that already exist — are one of the best ways to draw down carbon at gigaton scale, whilst also protecting the livelihoods of hundreds of millions of people and the habitat of rare wildlife.
Join the movement to regenerate our planet at scale. It all starts with planting & protecting forests and supporting local renewable energy and efficiency projects.
