EFM named one of top 50 impact investment fund managers
The Moss Creek watershed on the Garibaldi property is home to the first forest carbon project in Oregon and Washington. The project will offset approximately 150,000 tons of carbon through 2040. These offsets are made possible by EFM's management actions that reduce harvest volumes, extend rotations, expand reserves and protect important habitat. These voluntary actions go above and beyond regulatory requirements and are guided by the standards of the FSC, an independent non-governmental, not for profit organization established to promote the responsible management of the world's forests.
Forests in Oregon sequester over 9 billion tons of C02, which offset 50% of Oregon’s annual emissions. This underscores the critical role forests and climate-smart forest management strategies, such as longer rotations, larger buffers, and increased retention practiced by EFM, play in addressing climate change.
