What Our Customers Are Saying
"Telia Company chose Earthbanc to supply carbon offsets due to their Satellite and Remote Sensing AI data driven approach to auditing carbon offset projects. They ensure the carbon being claimed is accurate and precise when reported".
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.
