The highest integrity emissions reduction. At an unprecedented scale.
Providing access to the highest integrity credits

A pathway to zero deforestation
Emergent is a non-profit that serves as a transaction platform between tropical forest countries and the private sector—creating a new marketplace in large-scale transactions of high-integrity carbon credits at the jurisdictional level. We have a historic opportunity to bend the climate curve, if we make forests worth more alive.
“We will not overcome the climate emergency without safeguarding our planet’s lungs. Halting deforestation and restoring degraded forests are global imperatives.”
António Guterres Secretary-General of the United Nations

7 NOV 2022: LEAF Coalition Commitments top $1.5 billion at COP27
The LEAF Coalition today announced it has increased the total amount of financial commitments for the purchase of high-integrity emissions reductions credits to over USD $1.5 billion.
Emergent only sells credits issued under TREES – The REDD+ Environmental Excellence Standard – which sets a new benchmark for uncompromising environmental & social integrity, while reflecting the true value and cost of protecting forests.
As a non-profit, our only financial focus is maximizing the sale of carbon credits to fund forest protection programmes.
