N-EWN Seminar: CarbonWATCH–Assessing your carbon inventory at the landscape level using geospatial technology

Purpose

As climate change becomes an increasing threat, and organizations across the globe are setting ambitious net zero and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals, assessing, inventorying, and monitoring carbon stock in plants and soils has become vitally important to a variety of businesses and sectors. Stantec’s CarbonWATCH tool measures the amount of carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2e) present in vegetation and soil and can be deployed in any ecosystem for a wide variety of industries and professionals. Using a combination of high-resolution imagery, LiDAR, vegetation species allometric models, and artificial intelligence/machine learning, we can quantify CO2e in reclamation sites and\or mature natural capital locations faster and more accurately than traditional methods. During this webinar, participants will learn about the carbon markets, needs, the measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) process verses traditional monitoring methods, and how CarbonWATCH is utilized to streamline carbon measurements in vegetation and soil.
