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.”

COP28: Costa Rica and Ghana Agree Landmark Deals to Supply Forest Carbon Credits to LEAF Coalition Buyers
Emergent has announced that Costa Rica and Ghana have become the first forest governments to reach Emissions Reductions Purchase Agreements (ERPAs) with Emergent to supply high-integrity jurisdictional REDD+ emissions reductions and removals credits to LEAF Coalition buyers.
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.
