Climate protection projects
1We support the forest conservation project, which protects the 90,000-hectare forest in Pará, Brazil. Commercial deforestation is prohibited there, which is why alternative sources of income are being created for the 94 resident families. One example of this is the trade of the açaí fruit. The project is not only certified with the verified carbon standard, but also with the social carbon standard, as the project promotes development in one of the poorest regions in northeastern Brazil.
2We support the project planting trees in Germany. German forests are disappearing more and more. Be it through forest fires, triggered by climate change, or through drought and heat waves. The project supports reforestation and the conversion to so-called mixed forests. These consist of oaks and pines, for example. They are much more resistant to climate change and tolerate heat and drought better.
Protecting the environment doesn’t stop at the office.
