Projects

We work with verified and audited carbon busting projects around the world that help mitigate climate change, as well as support communities by creating jobs and protecting ecosystems.

Reforestation at a massive scale

With our partner Eden Reforestation Projects, we plant 50% of trees across the world in Haiti, Honduras, Indonesia, Kenya, Madagascar and Mozambique. One of the projects in Madagascar plant over 2 million mangroves per month! The other 50% will be planted in Nepal which is one of the least developed countries in the world with many communities depending on the natural environment for food, shelter, and income.

Our target for the next year is to plant 1 million trees on behalf of our community.

Peat Swamp Forest Protection, Indonesia

The Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve Project, located in Borneo, is one of the largest REDD+ peat swamp forest projects in the world, avoiding nearly 130 million tonnes of carbon emissions. The project protects forests and indigenous wildlife, as well as improves the livelihoods of local communities. Rimba Raya was the first ever validated REDD+ project under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and helped define the criteria by which all projects are measured. They were also the first REDD+ forest-carbon project in the world to receive triple-gold validation under the Climate Community and Biodiversity Alliance Standard (CCBA).

Forest Protection, Zimbabwe

Kariba REDD+ is a community-based project connects four national parks and eight safari reserves, forming a giant biodiversity corridor that protects an expansive forest and numerous endangered species. These species include the hippopotamus, lion and the African elephant. Since the project started in 2011, 3,620,000 tonnes of CO2e has been mitigated on average each year and 784,987 hectares of forest has been protected.

Peatland Restoration, Indonesia

Katingan Mentaya is one of the largest projects of its kind located in Indonesia. It generates an average 7.5 million triple gold certified carbon credits annually, the equivalent to taking 2 million cars off the road each year! The project protects peatland habitats as well as endangered and vulnerable species. The protected area is home to between 5 and 10% of the global populations of the Southern Bornean Gibbon, Bornean Orangutan and Proboscis Monkey.

Ocean Plastic Recovery & Recycling, Thailand Islands

Up to 12.7 million tonnes of plastic enters our oceans every year. It escapes from landfill sites, floats down our drains, ends up in rivers and makes its way into our oceans. The Second Life project focuses on islands and ocean biodiversity hotspots where plastic waste management is underdeveloped. To date, they have removed over 2,389,000 kgs of ocean-bound plastic since January 2020 and are the world’s very first Verra-certified plastic recovery and recycling project. Not only does the project ensure all collected ocean plastic finds its way back into the supply chain, they also work with the most vulnerable members of the community, where waste collection and recycling is a valuable source of income.

Technology of the future

Climate technology that will help permanently remove CO2e from the atmosphere is not too far away.

Nature does an incredible job of removing and storing carbon, but advances in technology are our best way to fully restore balance.

Earth9 is committed to supporting low-carbon early-stage technologies that will help us pave the way to net zero. We need to fully transition to a net zero economy by 2050.

These investments may include companies that capture and store carbon dioxide before it is released into the atmosphere or suck existing carbon dioxide from the air.
