The Kulshan Carbon Trust is a local Nonprofit organization. The KCT founders are Howard Sharfstein, Steve Hollenhorst, and Jessa Clark. KCTs mission “is to conserve and sequester carbon through collaborative natural climate solutions in Whatcom and Skagit Counties”. KCT plans to incorporate multiple Natural Climate Solutions to incentivize stakeholders to designate land for carbon sequestration. These Climate Solutions are “Forest Stewardship, Tree Planting & Growing, Biochar Supply, Regenerative Agriculture, and Blue Carbon (marine systems)”. The vision of KCT is “People working together to drawdown carbon in ways that regenerate the land and build prosperous communities”. Ultimately, KCT is interested in creating a financial incentive for carbon sequestration. The KCT model is largely based on the 2017 book “Project Drawdown” which is a compendium of evidence-based strategies for mitigating the impacts of climate change.
