Offsetting projects updated – new project in Brazil added

Please be informed that one of our four global offsetting projects needed to be replaced, as all offsetting certificates were sold. The previous forest protection project in Colombia was replaced by this new one:

Forest Protection Project, Cujubim, Brazil

This REDD+ project is located in the State of Rondônia, Brazil. The project’s 72,843 hectares area acts as a guardian of the rich biodiversity of the region, also serving as an ecological corridor between the local conservation areas. The aim is to improve the quality of life, offering social empowerment by training farmers in sustainable farming practices and forest management. There are some important biodiversity conservation goals, including the maintenance of forest coverage and the protection of several wildlife species.

It’s been recognized by the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations as being an exemplary case of sustainable forest management in Latin America and the Caribbean (2010) and is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), as a world reference in sustainable timber production. By preventing unplanned deforestation, about 7,457,910 tonnes of CO2 emissions will be avoided during the project's lifetime (30 years).
