About

Across Nature AS is a prolongation of the initiative taken by the founders to establish the Nicaforest High Impact Reforestation Program in Nicaragua in 2010. The sister company, Across Forest AS was established at the same time to organize ownership and management of the program together with the team in Nicaragua. As an experienced project developer, we understand the challenges in establishing and managing carbon capture projects with strong environmental and social co-benefits as well as all hurdles in the certification processes.

 

Across Nature AS is engaging in various fields of solutions as a project developer and as a seller of certified carbon credits to the voluntary carbon market.
