Keeping the 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.

Moss Carbon Credit projects are aud and certified cad to the best protocols and global 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. The issuance of credits is carried out by environmental projects that avoid the emission of CO2 or greenhouse gases and can certify these activities for the issuance of credits.

1 MCO2 carbon credit corresponds to 1 tonne of CO2.

What is Carbon Footprint?

Carbon footprint is the amount of Greenhouse Effect Gases (GHG) emitted by human activities. The best known GHGs are carbon dioxide and methane gas. Most human activities can emit GHG directly or indirectly.

Those who decide to reduce their footprint can do so 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 quena changes in our habits, we can offset part of the carbon footprint that cannot be eliminated or reduced. The simplest way to do this is through carbon credits !

annual carbon footprint is 6.4 tons on average in Brazil.

The project

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

Carbon Neutral 1THE FORTALEZA ITUXI REDD aims to protect the forests located in one of the regions with the greatest deforestation in the Amazon Biome: the municipality of Lábrea. As the southernmost municipality in the Brazilian state of Amazonas, Lábrea is geographically located close to the “Arc of Deforestation” and neighbors other highly deforested municipalities. Over the life of the project, the following benefits are expected: – Estimated net GHG emissions reduction: 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 quena plant for non-timber products, Brazil nut production (already installed), etc.; – Seedling production nursery: capacity for 50,000 seedlings of native species per year and donation to neighbors who wish to plant.- Implementation of technical educational milestones; – Additional monitoring of working conditions in the Project Area; – Implementation of a health insurance plan for workers; – Monitoring of attendance of young people in schools; – Commercial activity at the company “Castanhal Fortaleza” (creation of jobs in addition to timber management).
