Linking nature-based climate solutions to market-based infrastructure
Emergent is a nonprofit buyer and seller of credits with the discipline of a commercial market actor
As a nonprofit organization dedicated to maximizing environmental and sustainable development impacts, Emergent operates as a professional market facilitator to unite the conservation efforts of tropical forest countries with the ambitious emissions reduction goals of corporations and donor governments.
Our theory of change
Emergent was formed to create an innovative approach to jumpstart greater market investment, mobilize finance, and incentivize the exchange of REDD+ credits to maximize climate, ecosystem, and sustainable development benefits.
High integrity at scale
Emergent is the first-of-its-kind to match guaranteed finance for large-scale national or sub-national verified REDD+ credits with private sector demand. Emergent is priming the pump to help catalyze markets that will drive capital toward forest protection on a global scale.
