Our Offset Partners


We are partnering with Terrapass and Climate Neutral Now to offset our carbon emissions. We are investing exclusively in REDD+ programs which
means the programs fall under greater scrutiny for environmental impact assurance.



Keo Seima Wildlife Sanctuary REDD+ Project



One of the largest carbon emission reduction programs in Cambodia’s land use sector and a critical role in REDD+ success, a part of the country’s
commitment to reduce carbon emissions under the Paris Climate Agreement


 17.4 million tons of CO2 emissions avoided over the next 10 years


167k acres of protected dense forest


13k people live in Keo Seima across 20 villages


Carbon revenues address conservation & climate with area management, enforcement and monitoring tools and technologies. Formalize land and
resource use rights for local communities. Market development to diversify income streams through ecotourism, markets & non-timber forest product


Home to critically endangered primates like the black shanked douc, the iconic Asian elephant, as well as the ancestral and contemporary home of the
indigenous Bunong







Katingan Peatland Restoration REDD+ Project



The Katingan Restoration and Conservation Project protects and restores 149,800 hectares (370,163 acres) of peatland ecosystems.


With 34 village settlements in the area, the majority make their livelihoods from activities like fishing, food production, rubber tapping and rattan cultivation. 


This area has high biodiversity, with at least 144 tree species and endangered faunal species, such as orangutangs.  


The project uses its ERC license to block others from converting the land for other uses, protecting the integrity and avoiding future emissions.
