SilviaTerra helps mission-driven companies buy carbon credits from American forest owners. Based on a decade of work with America’s largest landowners, our data-driven platform brings gigatons of new carbon offsets to market. Our mission is to work with every forest owner to unlock the full value of every acre.
SilviaTerra’s Natural Capital Exchange (NCAPX) solves planetary market failure. We believe that measurements make markets. We measure every value on every acre of forest every year. Starting now, you can buy forest carbon credits from landowners in 11 states in the US South.
Forests provide many values, but timber is the only one that society has done a good job of measuring and paying for – timber literally gets weighed at the mill. Historically, it has been prohibitively expensive to have the acre-level forest data needed to underpin forest-based natural capital markets for values like carbon, wildlife habitat, fire risk, and water purification. SilviaTerra NCAPX solves this grand challenge.
We are backed by some of the world’s leading VC firms who were early investors in companies like Twitter, Etsy, Kickstarter, and Coinbase. Our global team of foresters, scientists, and technologists hails from leading research institutions and high growth technology startups.

Smart Freight Centre
Smart Freight Centre (SFC) was established in 2013 as a global non-profit organization dedicated to sustainable freight. We cover all freight and only freight.
Our vision is ‘Smart Freight’: an efficient and zero-emissions global logistics sector – contributing to Paris Agreement climate targets and Sustainable Development Goals.
Our mission is to bring together the global logistics community through our Global Logistics Emissions Council (GLEC) to work towards this vision. We believe that increased collaboration and transparency will mobilize companies to take climate action to reduce the greenhouse gas and pollution impact arising from global freight.
Our goal is that 100+ multinationals reduce at least 30% of logistics emissions by 2030 compared to 2015 across their global logistics supply chains reach net-zero emissions by 2050. Concretely this means at least 80 million tonnes annual CO2 e emission reductions by 2030.
Our main role is to advise companies on how to develop and implement their company-specific Sustainable Logistics Roadmap using the four ‘Smart Freight Leadership’ steps: report, set targets, reduce and collaborate.
To ensure sector-wide uptake of GHG disclosure and climate action, SFC also plays an advocacy role and raises awareness among companies and other relevant stakeholders.
We put this into practice through four activities:
- Guide multinationals and their suppliers to develop and implement Sustainable Logistics Roadmaps, through guidelines, training and advice
- Remove key business barriers through GLEC projects that results in guidelines that work for industry, the first of which was the GLEC Framework
- Advocacy with governments and organizations for supportive policy, programs and strategies in order to scale industry action
- Raise awareness through events, workshops and webinars and by publishing stories of companies that demonstrate leadership
