ALUS partners with climate-tech start-up, Albo Climate, to apply novel remote sensing models to tree and shrub projects in support of ALUS’ New Acre Project carbon quantification efforts
ALUS Tree planting project in Montérégie, Quebec, Canada
The ultra high-resolution, AI-powered products will be calibrated for ALUS’ tree and shrub projects in four provinces in Canada: Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Quebec. The sites are located on private lands managed and maintained by farmers and ranchers participating in the ALUS program.
Through ALUS’ New Acre Project, corporations can invest in projects to receive a bundled ecosystem credit that includes carbon sequestration, water and biodiversity benefits.
“We are excited about our partnership with ALUS, a fantastic organization massively implementing nature-based solutions across Canada. We are looking forward to applying our modes to service their afforestation, reforestation and regeneration projects, and detect carbon stocks in the woody vegetation even in small patches with recently planted trees,” notes Marco Calderon, CTO of Albo Climate.
