Darkwoods – Validation, Verification, and Registry of carbon offsets

Nature Conservancy of Canada

Darkwoods is a BC-based forest carbon project that covers 55,000 hectares. It was validated and verified to VCS standard in 2011. The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) used carbon finance to protect the area and protect it from being aggressively logged.

Our Involvement

Ostrom provided technical assistance in getting the project validated and verified but mainly acted to source a purchaser. They purchased 250,000 tonnes to help support the project and provide financial support.

Outcome​

The Darkwoods Project is fully validated and verified. Tonnes are currently available for purchase, and Ostrom still purchases volume for the portfolio.
