We prevent deforestation to block CO2 emissions and preserve the ecosystems in the Amazon
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 top programs for social and environmental impact: it benefits more than 500 local families and generates more than 2 MM VCS carbon standard credits a year.
Reducing our carbon emissions is not enough. We need to eliminate excess carbon dioxide in the atmosphere to head off climate catastrophe. Be part of the change!
