Toronto, Canada, March 28th, 2023 – ALUS and Albo Climate announce a partnership to use a remote sensing-based platform for identifying carbon stocks and sequestration for tree and shrub projects supported by New Acre Project, ALUS’ corporate sustainability investment platform.

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. 

The ALUS tree and shrub project sites serve not only as carbon sinks, but also foster local biodiversity and reduce runoff of agricultural inputs into local watersheds. Most projects are developed on the edges of the farmers’ fields which are oftentimes underutilized and include a variety of tree species that are native and appropriate to the area, including spruce, pine and maple trees.  

“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.  


Albo Climate’s innovative technology analyzes satellite imagery using deep learning to map, measure, and monitor carbon sequestration, deforestation and land-use changes in nature-based climate solutions.  
“We are delighted to be partnering with Albo Climate, an innovative start-up developing robust remote-sensing solutions suited to our needs. We are confident that this kind of technology has immense potential to scale up and create transparency in a variety of nature-based climate solutions,”
Mary-Ellen Anderson
