Our portfolio of projects

The project locations will align with our geographic footprint.

Our projects will be registered under the SD VISta standard, where technically feasible, verifying SDG outcomes along with the carbon removals.

Over the next 20 years, the projects are expected to remove an estimated 13+ million metric tons of carbon.

Planting trees in Indonesia

Since agricultural lands throughout Indonesia are especially susceptible to climate change with floods and droughts causing land degradation, local farmers are one of the social groups most vulnerable to climate change.

Our project will reforest degraded land and engage local communities, cooperatives and farmers in sustainable agroforestry practices, including helping farmers plant trees on their own land. Ultimately, this will help contribute to stabilizing incomes, reducing poverty, increasing biodiversity and promoting community-based action, all while sequestering carbon.

Planting bamboo in the Philippines

Through our project, we will plant native giant bamboo on degraded land to sequester carbon and deliver economic growth.

Bamboo’s root systems absorb rainwater and help to bind the soil, reducing flooding and erosion risks while providing a natural filter to help restore river water quality.

At maturity, approximately 15-20% of the bamboo will be harvested annually and developed into high-quality, fully traceable building materials for international markets. Harvesting the mature clumps does not harm the plant, in fact it spurs growth and increases sequestration.

This bamboo project will not only help remove carbon from the atmosphere, but it will also help to diversify incomes, reduce poverty levels and increase local biodiversity.

Reforesting the Mississippi Valley in the United States

In the lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley, a carbon project has been established to restore degraded agricultural lands back to their original and highly beneficial forest ecosystem. The project is designed to incentivize landowners to replant and permanently maintain forests due to financial incentives such as carbon credit sales, wood products and recreational/conservation services.

By design, this project expedites tree growth, accelerates CO2 sequestration, improves tree quality and survivability, and establishes quality wildlife habitats. Together with partners, our support of this project will have lasting positive impacts on the forests, surrounding communities and our global climate.

Increasing woodlands in the United Kingdom

We are supporting projects that have converted marginal farmland to permanent woodland in Scotland and England. This is expected to lead to the creation of new and diversified, sustainable forests.

Beyond being an effective and cost-efficient natural climate solution, able to remove and store CO2 from the atmosphere, the U.K. woodlands offer diverse local benefits. Woodlands act as important natural water filters, help prevent floods, serve as essential habitats for wildlife and provide recreational grounds to improve the mental and physical health of local communities. Locally appropriate reforestation is valuable in enhancing biodiversity. Woodlands also provide support for employment through sustainably managed and harvested timber.
