Our identity is grounded in reality.
We go on the ground, we develop our own projects, we make the link with the buyer and we manage the project.
Full vertical integration is the only way to build trust and maintain transparency.

Our purpose is to stop tropical deforestation and forest degradation, stop species loss from the destruction of their habitats, and to support and empower the people who live in and around tropical forest areas.

We bring two Nature Based Solutions to market.

Carbon Credits

We are developing high quality protection and regeneration projects for large-scale tropical forest. We amplify their effects through community engagement and the strategic application of technology.

More about Carbon Credits

Nature Equity

We offer assets, developed with renowned lawyers and banks, allowing companies to incorporate nature conservation as an asset on their balance sheet, with an annual ROI as carbon credits.

Delivering integrity and transparency

Before a carbon project can be developed all of the following conditions need to be met
Land tenure stability
Obtaining the most secure and closest form of forest land ownership is essential. We have built our in-house methodology.

Biodiversity & social
Studying the land and social structures to fully understand what impact we can make on biodiversity and the people living in and around the area.

Carbon fundamentals
Making sure additionality and permanence are solid and meet our rigorous quality standards.
Throughout the entire process the following principles apply
Science based & tech enabled
Utilizing up-to-date technology for reporting project progress and embracing absolute transparency in the MRV (Monitoring, Reporting, and Verification) process.

Co-involvement
Engaging with governments, NGOs, and businesses which share our vision of a successful project to maximize the impact we create.

Conservative claims
Our claims are based on robust baselines and conservative long-term, evidence-based greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) estimations.

What’s in a hectare?
More than just trees.

A hectare — 10.000 square meters, 2,47 acres, or 1,4 soccer fields — contains trees, lots of them. But it’s also an entire ecosystem of soil, water, weather, plants, and millions of critters that make the whole thing work. An average hectare in the Amazon contains:
7.228
species of animal (3.512 endangered)
2.250
species of plant (1.282 endangered)
625
tons of stored carbon
Water cleaning
Water purification & distribution

"It's crucial to understand the heart of a problem before building any solutions. Forestbase has thoroughly figured out why deforestation occurs and how to avoid conservation pitfalls. I stand behind the disruptive solution they are building. Incremental climate solutions simply won't cut it anymore."

Each project we develop not only generates carbon credits but also empowers and supports local communities.

We are contributing with our projects to the following Sustainable Development Goals.

Why should you trust us blindly?
You shouldn’t.

Anyone offering carbon credits, investment opportunities or claiming to contribute to saving planetary life should be examined carefully. We do all of it, so we welcome your scrutiny. We have designed an acquisition model, conservation model, and social model that make our credits and assets as clean, ethical, and protected as we deem feasible. The ambition is to bridge the gap between today and a truly sustainable economy which will take a few generations. We are transparent in our practices, and beyond rigorous in our research and oversight.
