Environmental Markets

The OEEP supports the development of emerging markets for water quality, carbon sequestration, wetlands, biodiversity, and other ecosystem services which allow for the participation of farmers, ranchers, and other private landowners.

Environmental markets are an innovative policy approach to increasing funding for environmental conservation on private lands and are often viewed as a complement to traditional conservation programs. Current active and pilot markets exist for greenhouse gasses, water quality, water quantity, wetlands, and habitats.
