We conserve the ecosystems of the Amazon by facilitating the capture of CO2 and preventing deforestation in the planet’s most biodiverse areas
3.8 million hectares of primary tropical forests were deforested in 2019. This loss generated carbon emissions equivalent to the annual emission level of 400 million cars. In Peru alone, 162 thousand hectares of forests were deforested in 2019, which is equivalent to deforesting an area the size of 25 soccer fields combined every hour for one year!
Conservation programs that reduce the emissions generated by the deforestation and degradation of forests (REDD+) constitute immediate strategies to mitigate climate change.
REDD+ Brazil-nut concessions is one of the world’s most relevant programs for social and environmental impact: it benefits more than 400 local families and generates more than 1.7 MM VCS carbon standard credits a year.
Reducing our carbon emissions is not enough. We need to eliminate excess carbon dioxide that is stored in the atmosphere if we want to head off climate catastrophe. Be part of the change!
