Rainforest Rescue

Certification  |  VCS

Projects across South America, Oceania and Africa protect millions of hectares of native forests which secure wildlife habitat and support local communities. For example, projects across Peru protect large, in-tact expanse of rainforest that would otherwise be cleared, preventing the release of millions of tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions each year. Protecting the forests secures the carbon stored within the organic matter. ​

These projects diversify landholder income and put a value on retaining the forests by supporting sustainable agroforestry including cocoa ​and coffee production. In addition to reducing emissions, ​protecting rainforests secures vital habitat for millions ​of endemic and endangered rainforest species of ​animals and plants.

The projects meet the following Sustainable Development Goals
