A pathway to zero deforestation

Emergent is a non-profit intermediary acting 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

An ambitious new public-private initiative designed to accelerate climate action by providing results-based finance to countries committed to protecting their tropical forests. This initiative aims to mobilize at least $1 billion in financing, kicking off what is expected to become one of the largest ever public-private efforts to help protect tropical forests.
