Measuring forest carbon capture is difficult due to a lack of reliable data. This makes it hard to determine whether current forest conservation projects are effectively reducing emissions. To address this and modernize the forest carbon market, Pachama has developed a carbon credits marketplace and monitoring software to assess projects' impacts. It uses satellite imagery, LiDAR imaging, and remote sensing to measure the carbon stored in forests over time and detects changes to the forest events like illegal logging. Pachama shares insights from this monitoring with both carbon offsetters and project developers. Pachama believes that the best way to reduce emissions is by protecting and restoring forests through the sale of carbon credits to businesses and consumers. Pachama’s goal is to restore 100 million hectares of forest by 2030.
