Forest Carbon Offsets LLC was established out of a desire by the partners to participate in the emerging industry of offset credits.  FCO has extensive experience in the tropical timber industry, the energy industry, sustainable forestry management, and forestry inventory and monitoring, which enables FCO to conduct very high quality projects using sustainable forestry and conservation strategies in the tropics.  The initial strategy is to pick a few small, but extremely high quality projects that include significant and obvious biodiversity and social cobenefits.   

Initial projects will be registered under both the Verified Carbon Standard and the Climate, Community, and Biodiversity Standard.  Voluntary Emission Reduction credits produced are available both as ex post (post-verification) and ex ante (pre-verification) sales.
