How to use win-win-win-win-win-wins (positive positive feedback loops) to beat climate change

About Cambium Carbon

Cambium Carbon is a circular economy platform, starting with trees in cities. They are working to connect the broken supply chains in the urban forestry industry through tech, and are creating a new, highly desirable, class of wood called Carbon-Smart WoodTM. Cambium Carbon is focused on building local e-commerce where customers can finally access wood from cities they care about. The model turns a waste stream (urban wood waste using SAAS for arborists and miller/makers) into valuable products (by connecting makers to buyers through it’s marketplace) into new trees (through local community plantings from virtual arborist services). Cambium provides a highly scalable and impactful model across the US that can help to equitably reforest America.
