Designing the next generation of carbon marketplace

We built NCX to address challenges with legacy forest carbon projects head-on. Download NCX's Guide to Forest Carbon to see how to drive real, immediate, scalable, and efficient climate impact.
Forestry is based on the knowledge of nature, the deeper we penetrate its secrets, the deeper the depths before us. What the light of an oil lamp makes visible is easily overlooked; many more things we can see by torch light, but infinitely more in the sunlight. The lighter it grows around us, the more unknown things become apparent, and it is a sure sign of shallowness, if anybody believes he knows it all.
-Heinrich von Cotta, 1816
