Show Notes

Hello everyone and welcome back to CleanTechies the Podcast. This is episode 63.

If you are a climate tech founder with specific questions you'd like us to ask -- OR -- looking for capital and strategic partner introductions, please reach out to me via the Slack Channel or LinkedIn and we are glad to help in any way we can.  

What is carbon sequestration? Isn't it a scam? How does it work? Who decides the price? 

We cover these and more questions about the carbon sequestration and carbon markets space in today's conversation with Matt Smith from Finite Carbon. 

Finite Carbon is a platform helping land owners get verified Carbon Credits, as well as connect them with the buyers of these credits. And soon, this will be available to landowners with as little as 40 acres. 

Very exciting work they are doing at Finite Carbon. We are glad we can bring this episode to you. 

Main talking points of today's discussion are:

  • How the carbon markets work 
  • What a carbon baseline is
  • Being a self-regulated industry
  • Verification and transparent reporting 
  • How to get into the space 
  • The future of Carbon Markets

We hope you enjoy today's episode - please reach out with any specific questions or discussion points. If you're interested in being a show sponsor you can reach me at silasmahner@gmail.com
