WASHINGTON, D.C. — The bipartisan Trillion Trees and Natural Carbon Storage Act would bring a crucial new focus on natural carbon sequestration and solutions for America’s forests, wetlands, grasslands, and coastal ecosystems. The legislation also would support a voluntary carbon credit market and efforts overseas to improve the management of forests and promote sustainable land use.
“Any serious proposal to act on climate must include natural solutions — healthy forests, grasslands, wetlands, and coastal ecosystems — that sequester carbon and bolster resilience through ecologically appropriate reforestation and restoration,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “We’re proud to work with our good friends Senators Chris Coons, Mike Braun, Todd Young, and Angus King on this forward-thinking, bipartisan effort to help address climate change by tapping natural ecosystems and their ability to store carbon and make communities safer.”
