Carbon

The Trocano Project’s main activity is the protection of 1.3 million hectares of rainforest that is at risk of deforestation.  This one activity serves a three-fold benefit:

1

The protection of the project area ensures all carbon that is already stored in the trees continues to be stored.

2

The protection of the project area ensures that the trees continue their job of absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere, year on year.

3

The protection of the rainforest from deforestation ensures that the carbon stored in the trees does not get emitted and the carbon stock of the forest is maintained.


 This simply described trio of carbon benefits are the real and measurable outcomes of successfully implementing the Trocano Araretama project  They highlight the significance and value of the project, and of protecting the rainforest as a whole.

By implementing the Trocano Araretama project we are ensuring that this vast area of Amazonian rainforest stays intact and continues to deliver on the these important benefits, both for the absorption of CO2 as well as the prevention of additional emissions into the atmosphere.
