Unlocking forest carbon markets – Event 4 of the FSD 3rd Series

December 14, 2023 - 10:00 am / 11:15 am

Unlocking forest carbon markets on 14 December from 10 to 11:15 CET Online. Forestry Speed Dating third series organised by the bioregions facility

FSD: Unlocking forest carbon markets – Event 4

The fourth event of this series will spotlight the winners of the Bioregions’ Open Innovation Challenge from December 2022.

Three innovative organisations were granted EUR 7,000 each to advance their projects. At this event, you will meet two of them: Föra Forest Technologies with their AI-powered förecast tool that gauges forest carbon stock through conventional and LiDAR techniques, and Zerti Carbon’s app, which provides landowners with in-depth insights into tree growth and carbon sequestration, harnessing state-of-the-art technologies to facilitate carbon offset acquisitions for both individuals and corporations.

Föra: AI and remote-sensing tool that gauges forest carbon stock and vegetation disturbances with multiple modules

Föra Forest Technologies’ tool (förecast) is a forest intelligence tool that estimates the carbon stock available in the forest and measures other forest variables using remote sensing and artificial intelligence developed by föra. Förecast leverages artificial intelligence and remote sensing to assess carbon stock in forests and offers transparent monitoring of vegetation disturbances. The tool comprises four modules: traditional inventory, LiDAR inventory, satellite and LiDAR integration, and forest simulations. Föra is one of the winners of the Bioregions Open Innovation Challenge launched in 2022 and won second place at the 2020 ESA Digital Twin Earth Challenge.

Speaker: Iñigo Lizarralde, CEO, Föra. Learn more

Zerti Carbon: Cutting-edge technology for climate-smart forestry, allowing users to offset emissions

Zerti Carbon is a company that offers certified carbon sink solutions using blockchain technology, is dedicated to advancing climate-smart forestry solutions, and connects forest owners with companies interested in neutralising carbon emissions. The Zerti Carbon app provides detailed data to landowners about tree growth and carbon capture, ensuring transparent traceability. By digitising forests and using advanced technologies such as drone scanning, Lidar, machine learning, augmented reality, and AI to analyse the forest’s carbon sinks, the app provides a system where individuals and companies can offset their carbon emissions by purchasing carbon credits. Zerti Carbon is one of the winners of the Bioregions Open Innovation Challenge launched in 2022.
