Keeping Forests Standing is part of our mission! We are associated with the largest carbon credit manager in Brazil - Moss Carbon Credit, to transform a portion of your purchase into carbon credits that will be used to offset our carbon "footprint" on the planet, transferring resources to projects to preserve the Amazon.

The projects of Moss Carbon Credit they are audited and certified according to the best global protocols and standards. We use blockchain technology to transfer and donate resources through the MCO2 token.

CO2 is the main gas responsible for global warming, with approximately 78% of its emission arising from human activity. Credits are issued by environmental projects that avoid the emission of CO2 or greenhouse gases and can attest to these activities for the issuance of credits.

1 MCO2 carbon credit corresponds to 1 ton of CO2.

What is Carbon Footprint?

Carbon footprint is the amount of greenhouse gases (GHG) emitted by human activities. The most well-known GHGs are carbon dioxide and methane gas. Most human activities can emit GHGs directly or indirectly.

Who decides decrease your footprint can do this in many ways, such as reducing the use of packaging, opting for a less polluting means of transport, reducing meat consumption etc ... In addition to making small changes in our habits, we can compensate for part of the carbon footprint can be eliminated or reduced. The simplest way to do this is through carbon credits!

The carbon footprint estimate Yearly per person is 6.4 tons on average in Brazil.

The project

Our credits are being used to preserve the FORTALEZA ITUXI project:

Carbon Neutral 1THE PROJECT FORTALEZA ITUXI REDD aims to protect forests located in one of the regions with the highest deforestation in the Amazon Biome: the municipality of Lábrea. As the southernmost municipality in the Brazilian state of Amazonas, Lábrea is geographically located near the “Arco do Deforestação” and is neighboring other highly deforested municipalities. Over the life of the project, the following benefits are expected: - Estimated reduction in net GHG emissions: 720,470 tCO2e, corresponding to the prevention of deforestation of 1,836.5 hectares in 30 years; - Technical training in sustainable livestock and forest management, fire brigades, study for a small non-timber product processing plant, production of Brazil nuts (already installed) etc .; - Seedling production nursery: capacity of 50,000 seedlings of native species per year and donation to neighbors who wish to plant.- Implementation of educational milestones techniques; - Complementary monitoring of working conditions in the Project Area; - Implementation of a health insurance plan for workers; - Monitoring the attendance of young people in schools; - Commercial activity in the company “Castanhal Fortaleza” (generation of jobs beyond wood management).
