Sourcing and Business Development Manager Latin America - First Climate Markets AG

First Climate has been collaborating with Bosques Amazónicos in a close partnership for years. We are excited about the opportunity to enable our client’s commitment to climate protection with high-quality offsets from BAM’s Peruvian REDD+ project. This is a favored project, since it protects the forest whilst also providing benefits to the local communities.

Associate Carbon Procurement Manager - South Pole

At South Pole, we support the implementation of climate actions. For this reason, since 2017, we have provided financing to the BAM project in Madre de Dios by purchasing carbon credits. The transactions that are channeled through projects such as this one reduce emissions and contribute to preserving the Amazon–known as the Planet’s lungs– to strengthen biodiversity preservation efforts and generate means of subsistence for our indigenous peoples: the guardians of the forest.
