About

What we do

  • Presentations. We draw on our expertise in agriculture, natural based climate solutions, environmental markets, and carbon accounting to deliver relevant and objective information for change agents seeking knowledge. 
  • Communications. We navigate across media platforms – academic publications, blogs, video conferencing, podcasts – to amplify voices and ideas in the climate change arena.
  • Scoping & feasibility studies. We optimize positioning and strategies for clients seeking to take their climate projects to the next level.
  • Carbon asset / Market based instrument project development. We cut through red tape and navigate a complex landscape to help projects maximize their environmental value. 

Who we are

Nicholas Goeser (LinkedIn)  is an agricultural sustainability change agent with organizational leadership, sustainability strategy development and research experience in the areas of crop production, nutrient cycling and management, and environmental quality.  Nick has served as CEO for the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America. Nick has held Vice President roles for the  National Corn Growers Association and U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance focusing on agricultural productivity, water quality, soil health, climate change and broader agricultural sustainability.  He was the first Director of The Soil Health Partnership, a Technology Development Representative with Monsanto and Agronomic Research Manager on a commercial farm bringing over a decade of research and education in the areas of crop production, nutrient cycling and management, and environmental quality.  He completed a MS in Agronomy and PhD in Horticulture from the University of Wisconsin.  His doctoral research focused on the evaluation of crop productivity, nutrient use efficiency, and nutrient cycling.

Christophe Jospe (LinkedIn) is an innovator in carbon accounting and carbon market design. His work bridges the gap between science, technology, policy, and business opportunities to realize the potential of activities that can reduce or remove carbon from the atmosphere. In 2014, he moved from Columbia University, to co-found the Center for Negative Carbon Emissions at Arizona State University as chief strategist. In 2017, he co-founded Nori, a start-up that launched a carbon removal marketplace initially to help US food and fiber producers monetize the incremental soil organic carbon stock changes from adopting practices to draw carbon out of the atmosphere. He left Nori in the beginning of January 2021 to focus his efforts on building Carbon A List, expanding the breadth of his focus beyond carbon credits, and leverage his knowledge and expertise to contribute to a more holistic approach to advance high impact projects.

Oliver Miltenberger (LinkedIn) is a specialist in ecosystem management and leading researcher in emerging environmental markets. Trained as a computational modeller, he has held positions with the US Geological Survey and NASA and served as fellow or grantee at the National Science Foundation (USA), USAID, Harvard Travellers Program, Colorado School of Global Environmental Sustainability, and German-Australian Climate and Energy College. As a founding consultant, he has worked directly with land managers, program developers, technology platforms, and investors to build protocols and strategy around accessing climate change financing. This work aims to accelerate opportunities that reward climate action outcomes and best practices on working lands.

Oliver is currently a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley and late-stage PhD candidate at the University of Melbourne where he studies the scale-up of climate smart agriculture. He holds a bachelors by honors in environmental studies and masters of science in ecology and international development. 

Laurie Muzzy (LinkedIn) was prompted by her first compost pile to study soil and all the life in it. Her work has encompassed viticultural soil surveys to state-level livestock policy, as well as forest and wetland restoration. With experience delivering science-based support to projects in government, private industry, and nonprofits, she is a collaborator, alliance-builder and all-around carbon removal cheerleader. She focuses on bridging the gap between knowing how to solve problems and actually doing it.

Originally from coastal California, she lives in Durham, North Carolina, where her family plays in the local forests and creeks.
