Why REDD+

Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+) is the best mechanism we have to address our climate, deforestation, and biodiversity crisis at the scale and urgency needed

Forest Loss is at the Center of Our Climate and Biodiversity Crises

The Problem is the Solution

REDD+ projects are the only way we as a society have found to put value on a standing tree in a threatened forest.

  • REDD+ provides a direct mechanism for the market to incentivize and reward forest conservation and wildlife protection, by paying for the greenhouse gas emissions reductions that result from effective forest conservation.
  • High-impact REDD+ projects, such as those Everland represents, effectively protect precious forests and their species from imminent destruction, whether from oil palm conversion, illegal logging, unsustainable agricultural practices, or the granting of corrupt land concessions in protected areas.
  • High-impact REDD+ projects also help surrounding communities chart a path toward sustainable livelihoods, by investing carbon revenues in community health, education, infrastructure, and economic development.
