Chandler Van Voorhis, GreenTrees co-founder and managing partner, will share expert insight on nature based carbon removal credits
THE PLAINS, Va., Sept. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- WHAT
Chandler Van Voorhis, co-founder and managing partner at GreenTrees, will join a panel of experts at the Climate & Capital Conference in a session titled, "The Role of Environmental Markets in Net Zero: Creating an Asset Class for Natural Capital."
Coinciding with Climate Week NYC, the Climate & Capital Conference, hosted by ICE, Gitterman Asset Management and FINTECH.TV, will bring together industry leaders in investment, business, and climate communities to discuss pertinent climate topics. These will include strategies to align capital with climate commitments, ways to engage with corporate issuers on decarbonization strategies, and solutions to measure and manage climate risk.
ICE recently announced two upcoming auctions of GreenTrees' nature-based carbon removal credits to be held later this year. Each auction will offer 250,000 Emission Reduction Tons (ERTs) from GreenTrees' reforestation projects. The ERTs offered for sale by GreenTrees are issued by the American Carbon Registry (ACR) with each ERT representing the removal from the atmosphere of the equivalent of one metric ton of carbon dioxide.

GreenTrees is the market leader in reforestation and carbon removal in the U.S. A model land equity program for landowners, GreenTrees generates the largest number of forestry carbon removal credits in the U.S. The only carbon removal program open to both small and large landowners, GreenTrees engages individual landowners to plant forests, measure the growth annually and convert the annual growth into carbon credits. All carbon credits in GreenTrees' projects undergo a rigorous verification process by the American Carbon Registry and are accepted by global environmental markets as the highest standard for quality in nature-based carbon removals. Wholly owned by ACRE Investment Management, LLC, GreenTrees has engaged 600+ landowners ranging from 10 to 3,500+ acres and planted 130,000+ acres of forests that have removed more than six million metric tons of carbon from the Earth's atmosphere; these existing planted acres will remove a projected 30 million metric tons over the next 40 years; additional plantings will grow carbon removal capacity significantly as GreenTrees' parent company's affiliate platform company, ACRE IO, will accelerate planting velocity for GreenTrees and other independent projects. Fortune 500 companies trust GreenTrees' carbon credits to meet sustainability goals and combat climate change. For more information about GreenTrees, visit https://www.green-trees.com/.
