JACKSON, Miss.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Molpus Woodlands Group, LLC (Molpus) today announced it has now registered or sold more than one million acres of carbon offset projects, which are estimated to generate over 7 million metric tons of carbon offsets. The twenty projects are located within ten different U.S. states.
These forest carbon offset programs highlight the opportunities for Molpus’s sustainably managed forests to deliver value to its clients as well as having a climate- and nature-positive impact. Molpus’s carbon offset program is led by veteran environmental executive Dick Kempka, Vice-President, Conservation, who formerly held positions with The Climate Trust and Equator LLC. He is supported by Molpus’s dedicated Real Estate and Renewables team.
“Working forests provide us with so many benefits: environmental, social, and economic. They are also important in playing a role in mitigating climate change, by sequestering and storing carbon,” said Kempka. “As one of the largest timber investment management organizations in the U.S., Molpus is at the forefront of this market, which has demonstrated both environmental and economic benefits.”
Bob Lyle, President of Molpus, said, “Molpus takes great pride in being a good steward of the forests we manage and finding new and innovative markets for forest products. Forest carbon markets are a meaningful way to provide value to our clients, while at the same time finding potential solutions for today’s most challenging climate problems.
