Climate Trust Capital makes first grasslands carbon investment



The Climate Trust’s carbon fund was established late last year with a program-related investment from the Packard Foundation and a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

The $5.5 million fund underwrites investments based on the projected 10-year value of the carbon credits from forestry, grasslands and livestock waste digesters.

The fund’s first grasslands deal is a $260,000 investment into a 12,000-acre Oregon ranch to support an “agricultural easement” that allows for managed grazing, but ensures that the land won’t be converted for commercial agriculture or energy use.

According to the Climate Trust, the plan will prevent an estimated 55,000 tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere.
