The Miele Forest projects operate in partnership with LivClean, a top-ranked Canadian carbon offset retailer.
Coastal First Nations-Great Bear Initiative (CFN) is an alliance of Indigenous Nations on the North Pacific Coast of British Columbia—a region known throughout the world as the Great Bear Rainforest. The alliance includes the Wuikinuxv, Haida, Heiltsuk, Kitasoo Xaix’ais, Nuxalk, Gitga’at, Metlakatla and Gitxaala First Nations.
CFN was created based on a shared commitment and conviction that if a conservation-based economy is to succeed, our active and meaningful participation is essential. In recent years, the CFN has also emerged as a world leader in the sale of carbon credits. These carbon credits provide their Nations with revenue to support sustainable economic initiatives, such as renewable energy projects, eco-tourism, and sustainable fisheries. This revenue also supports social development within the communities, and helps to conserve the largest and most ecologically significant temperate rainforest in the world – the Great Bear Rainforest.

Founded in 2007 to sustain a third generation family farm in northern Alberta, The Carbon Farmer has planted and protected more than one million native trees and shrubs on conserved land. These projects create habitat and store carbon, addressing the major environmental issues of deforestation and climate change. The co-founders, husband and wife duo Brad and Rebecca Rabiey, finalized an investment from Bruce Croxon and Arlene Dickinson of CBC Dragons’ Den, following a successful pitch on the show in 2012. Together they are now completing projects across Canada and internationally.
