The Pacajai REDD+ project, located in the Brazilian state of Para, aims to prevent unplanned deforestation for 123,000 hectares of native Amazonian forest, now managed by the local villagers. Along with its environmental impact, it improves the standard of living of the population through direct investments in health, education, infrastructure and the empowerment of vulnerable groups. The objective of this project is to avoid the emission of 9,582,742 tonnes of CO2 for a period of 40 years.

The India Wind Project is located in the Rajasthan state (38.4 MW) and Tamil Nadu state (12 MW) of India. There is a total of 63 Wind Electric Generators (WEGs) of 800 kW capacities each installed at the sites, of these 48 WEGs are based at Jaisalmer in Rajasthan and 15 WEGs at Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu. The project objective is to set up a wind farm of an aggregate capacity of 50.4 MW, to ultimately reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide clean renewable power to the Indian Grid.

Most families living in Uganda cook with traditional three-stone fires or open fires which create serious health implications for locals. This means that a lot of time is spent on firewood collection, causing deforestation and land degradation.
This Project is implementing energy-efficient cookstoves to households within three districts of Uganda, allowing locals to cook the same amount of food using less firewood which reduces their health issues from smoke. The total emission reduction from the disseminated 25,600 improved cookstoves will be around 480,976 tonnes of CO2, with an annual average emission reduction of 32,065 tonnes of CO2.

The ClimatePositive-buildOn partnership is a passion project for both organizations, cooperating to create truly impactful change.
It brings solar-powered technology to light up children’s schools, making them available for evening adult literacy programs. These programs not only promote literacy but also empower business and work through a variety of other activities, including reforestation, irrigation, crop and livestock management and beekeeping. All of which provides food for school children, meaning more of them stay in class and remain healthy.
Replace CO2 and particulate matter with clean solar energy
Provide new sources of energy to the local community
Restore biodiversity to local lands
Provide education and economic empowerment
Increase food security throughout sponsorship regions
9 schools implemented with solar power
5,588 students enrolled
The Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve Project is located in a 64,000-hectare forest on the southern coast of Borneo and is avoiding nearly 130 million tonnes of carbon emissions. It is the world’s largest initiative to protect and preserve High Conservation Value (HCV), lowland tropical peat swamp forests – one of the most highly endangered ecosystems in the world. Located in the province of Central Kalimantan, the project is also designed to protect the integrity of the adjacent world-renowned Tanjung Putting National Park by creating a physical buffer zone on the full extent of the ~90km eastern border of the park. Rimba Raya is rich in biodiversity, including several flagship species such as the endangered Bornean orangutan, Clouded Leopard, Gibbon, Proboscis Monkey, and Asian Sun Bear.

The Jari Pará REDD+ Project aims to promote forest conservation and greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) reduction. Located in the municipality of Almeirim, in the State of Pará, and bordering the State of Amapá, it is home to many rural families and to several Conservation Units (CUs). The region is rich in biodiversity, its vegetation includes forests and species of extreme ecological and social importance.
Total avoided CO2 emissions of 15,759,440.1 tonnes
Avoided deforestation of 51,985 hectares during the project's lifecycle
Average of 525,314, reduced emissions annually
Improvement of family farming
Reducing social vulnerability and rural exodus
Connection to several conservation units
Increased knowledge through scientific research
The project intends to help Kenyans access healthy, energy-saving cookstoves and water treatment products. In order to reach a wide range of Kenyans with the most appropriate technology, the project leverages carbon finance to support the sale and distribution of stoves to households and institutions. The project will replace traditional cooking devices with energy-efficient wood and charcoal ICS with a minimum thermal efficiency of 20%. Using carbon finance the project will develop local market channels and support NGOs as they create sustainable distribution networks of locally appropriate efficient stoves and water treatment partners.
294,000 people impacted
6,2 million verified hours saved
3,2 million firewood costs saved
Replacement of traditional cooking devices with a minimal thermal efficiency of 20%
A more sustainable, economic and healthy way to cook
The Katingan Peatland Restoration and Conservation Project seeks to protect and restore 149,800 hectares of peatland ecosystems, offer local people sustainable sources of income, and tackle global climate change. The project area stores vast amounts of CO2, and plays a vital role in stabilizing water flows, preventing devastating peat fires, enriching soil nutrients and providing clean water.
