CO Forestry® is convinced that developing and promoting carbon credits, carbon finance as well as the international and voluntary carbon markets generates attention and solutions for a huge global problem. Our approach is to help develop a more carbon-efficient, sustainable and environmentally friendly approach to business practices which we see as the fastest, most economical way to bring about the greatest change to the global carbon imbalance.

Reducing Deforestation

The company is engaged in efforts to develop its own projects to take advantage of the dramatic transformation occurring in the charcoal supply market (over $500 million annually) of the Brazilian steel industry. These projects will replace native forest destruction with a quickly renewable, more environmental friendly source of charcoal for iron ore reduction.

Reforestation

The reintroduction of trees improves soil quality and chemistry, water retention and long-term carbon sequestration. Locally produced timber, along with its many supporting businesses including nursery, planting and harvesting, as well as the charcoal and lumber production facilities, support and strengthen rural economic development providing stable, well-paying jobs.

Investment

The income produced from the sale of both timber and carbon credits creates a long-term, lower-risk, stable investment return for our strategic partners, as well as other investors such as pension funds, college endowments and private individuals.

Gender Sensitive

Women are a large percentage of employees in the nurseries and have been known to start small family businesses producing honey, soaps and eucalyptus oils near plantation facilities. These local jobs and economic opportunities reduce the incentive for individuals and families to move to the overcrowded slums of Brazil.

Our Story

CO₂ Forestry® Corp.

Currently we are engaged in the sale and marketing of high-quality CO₂ Forestry®  brand carbon credits to offset the CO₂ emissions of forward-thinking customers and partners. A CO₂ Forestry®  brand credit provides a simple way for corporations, non-profits and special events to promote and involve their customers, partners and stakeholders in environmental sustainability and carbon reduction.

The early carbon credit sales and sponsorships are instrumental to the establishment of the CO₂ Forestry® brand, as an identifiable and easily understood means to connect and engage customers in the company’s overall sustainability efforts. By utilizing our credits to sponsor the reduction of carbon footprints of non-profits and special events, CO₂ Forestry® further promotes and develops brand awareness. In addition we use these high visibility events to earn large media attention and to promote carbon offsetting and reduction as vital facets of environmental sustainability.

Recently the company purchased high-quality, Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) carbon credits developed in the state of Para’ in the Brazilian Amazon. These Reduced Emission from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) credits were the first REDD credits verified by the VCS in the Amazon. They have also been certified by the FSC to ensure that proper social and community guidelines are in place, making these credits some of the highest-quality, third-party verified forest carbon credits available on the market today.
