About reforestation
These projects protect and restore forests which sequester carbon and help biodiversity to thrive. One mature tree in a forest sequesters around ~20kg of carbon every year.
How it works
  • The project developers fund the protection of the Madre de Dios region of the rainforest through sustainable forest management 

  • Local jobs are created to maintain the land and programs 

  • The protected forests sequester CO2 from the atmosphere, protects the habitats of endangered species and promotes biodiversity  

Proof of Carbon Accounting
To ensure transparency, Green Story Carbon Registry tracks issuance and retirement of carbon credits for all projects on the Green Story offset platform.
