Reforestation and forest preservation carbon offset projects are part of the global warming solution. Avoided deforestation projects are critical because about 11-14 percent of all global warming is attributed to deforestation, which reduces the Earth’s capacity to absorb carbon dioxide. Moreover, fallen trees decompose and release methane, a heat-trapping gas about 25 times more potent than CO2.
Forest-based carbon offset projects fight climate change by sequestering carbon dioxide emissions from the atmosphere in trees and soil, and have many co-benefits for the community and local wildlife. Forest preservation creates jobs, maintains and expands wildlife habitats, protects biodiversity, and improves local environmental quality.
Much of the world’s tropical rainforests have either been cut down or are directly threatened with imminent deforestation. Deforestation and forest degradation have resulted in species loss and direct contribution to global warming.
Moreover, deforestation accounts for more global carbon dioxide emissions than the entire global transportation sector! Our reforestation and avoided deforestation offset projects meet the toughest industry standards.
We support a variety of different projects and below is a sample of projects we are currently supporting and have supported in the past.
Forestry projects absorb carbon emissions this year and for years and decades into the future. Your support of these projects is reducing emissions over several decades. Fight global warming. Protect biodiversity. Help communities. Support forest-based carbon offset projects.
