As part of the Althelia Climate Fund, Ecosphere+ has one of the largest portfolios of forest carbon projects in the world.
The forests we protect are all under a direct threat of deforestation. Our action on the ground helps to address the drivers of deforestation whilst also protecting habitats, offering impoverished communities a more sustainable way of making a living, and many other outcomes that further the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Climate finance on our projects
Carbon credits are a way to place a value on the carbon storage and other environmental, social and economic benefits delivered through protecting and enhancing forests and using land sustainably.
All our projects dually protect threatened forests and work with local communities to transition to sustainable land use through the production of deforestation-free commodities. For example, at our Tambopata project in Peru, carbon finance helps local farmers develop agroforestry systems of fine, aromatic cocoa through restoring degraded lands. This infographic shows how carbon finance is used for the Tambopata project.
