Nature Based Projects
Verified carbon offsetting
All our Nature Based projects are independently audited to meet the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS)
Many of the projects supported here are classed as "REDD+ projects". Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) is a mechanism to create financial value for the carbon stored in forests. It offers incentives for developing countries to reduce emissions from forested lands and invest in low-carbon paths to sustainable development.
Forest degradation and deforestation is one of the main causes of carbon emissions, accounting for around 15% of the world’s annual greenhouse gas emissions. The United Nations created the REDD+ mechanism to quantify and value the carbon storage services that forests provide.
By offsetting using our Nature Based projects you will be helping biodiversity and supporting local communities with projects like:
- Type: Reduced Deforestation
- Location: Brazil, South America
- Standard: VCS
- Reference: VCS 981
- Est. Reductions: 264,116 tCO2e per year
