Here is our selection of nature-based offset projects. We're adding more over time.
In 2021, Government partners through the Forestry Department officially approved the establishment of the 15,000+ hectare Mpanshya Wildlife Corridor. This strategic corridor links two of Zambia’s most important biodiversity areas of the Lower Zambezi and Luangwa ecosystems.The project area was designated by local community members themselves after a free, prior and informed consent. The project enjoys widespread support not only from the local communities, but also from the traditional authorities and the government of the Republic of Zambia, who actively take part in the project's implementation.View project →
Referred to as the lungs of the Earth, the Amazon basin contains 59% of the world’s tropical rainforests and plays a major role in sustaining life on this planet. But 20% of it has been eradicated over the last 50 years and, if this continued deforestation endures, it could cause the Amazon’s tropical climate to dry out. The REDD+ Maísa project addresses the main drivers of deforestation in Belem’s center of endemism and is rated as a Gold Level GL3 project for its “exceptional biodiversity benefits”. These 658,148 hectares in the Amazon jungle constitute one of the largest remaining forest blocks and were selected as a Key Biodiversity Area because of its global significance in conservation efforts. The project aims to keep the forest standing by developing, implementing and monitoring alternative economic activities that benefit over 300,000 people residing in this area. With the use of satellite images to identify possible sources of deforestation, the REDD+ Maísa project prevents an average annual amount of 67.458,1 tonnes of CO2 equivalent (tCO2e) emissions from being released into the atmosphere.View project →
This is the first community-based REDD+ program that will protect and restore 27,000 ha of cloud forest, in addition to preserving sacred groves and watersheds. Located in a global biodiversity hotspot, we aim to provide support, new technologies, and financial incentives to conserve existing forests and regenerate degraded ones. Another primary objective is to deliver long-term strategies to address extreme poverty facing rural families, by manufacturing and installing fuel-efficient cookstoves and plans to subsidize the majority of the 5,000 households in the project area. As a result of this, fuelwood consumption and indoor smoke pollution will be reduced, improving forest and family health.View project →
