Reforestation projects are examples of an easily understandable and comprehensible climate protection: during growth trees absorb CO2 from the atmosphere and store carbon in the wood. In addition, reforestation projects remove carbon emissions from the atmosphere by means of tree growth.

Launched in 2007, the ArBolivia project covers an area of ​​nearly 5,000 hectares. Over a period of 50 years there will be a total reduction of 355,000 tons of CO2, which is more than 7,000 tons per year.
In addition to carbon emission reductions, the project meets the high requirements of the Gold Standard in terms of socio-economic benefits: The local farmers participate in the returns of sold carbon credit. This insures a long-term incentive to be part of the project.
They will be accompanied by experienced forestry engineers who ensure the sustainable management of land.

Approximately 15% of the total area of the project’s forest habitats and wetlands are protected as sustainable nature reserves and therefore as habitats for indigenous animal and plants.

The reforestation project also combines the highest quality standards of any recognized climate protection project along with a variety of environmental and socio-economic benefits for both people and the environment.
As one of the first forest carbon projects of its kind, it has been certified by the new Gold Standard “Land Use and Forests”.
