Monitoring carbon uptake of forests from space
A service to quantify the net amount of carbon dioxide gas removed from the atmosphere by carbon sequestration projects based on satellite imagery.
High costs and difficult business cases
The demand for carbon credits from forestry on the voluntary carbon markets is on the rise. However, low-cost, reliable and continuous monitoring of carbon sequestration is required in order to enable accessibility, transparency, accountability and trust of the markets, as well as for companies and national governments to ensure that they are meeting their goals.
Satellite data and state-of-the-art analysis to measure and track carbon
Foresight Carbon is an automated platform that uses satellite data to provide reliable measurements of forest carbon sequestration at a significantly reduced cost compared to traditional methods.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 824478.
