Carbon Markets for the Northern Forests

We are partnering with researchers and practitioners from the for-profit, non-profit and government sectors to explores the potential for local carbon markets for Vermont and the Northern Forest region. Particular emphasis is placed on on connecting non-industrial family forests and comunity-based forestry projects with local institutions and visitors to the region.

One project is exploring brand attributes that may be important to residents and visitors to this region. We are looking at the relative importance of rigorus standards, location, ecological co-benefits and social co-benefits.
