One of the most important things we can do to help stop climate change is to protect the forests we already have. As of 2021, the Amazon Rainforest now creates more CO2 than it absorbs for the first time in history. We fund a project protecting the Amazon rainforest from illegal logging.

Using technology to improve forest protection in the Amazon.

For the first time in history, the Amazon rainforest is creating more CO2 than absorbing it from the atmosphere. We support work by Pachama to use satellite technology to protect large portions of the Amazon rainforest from illegal logging. Pachama has pioneered their satellite technology that can help improve and scale forest protection in a cost-effective manner.

Diego Saez Gil, Pachama's CEO is on a mission to restore nature to solve climate change.

What we must do continues to be clear: stop CO2 emissions, enhance carbon sinks (restore nature), prepare to mitigate impacts, etc. It's up to all of us.

We chose to fund Pachama because they are doing some of the most cost-effective climate work thanks to their ability to verify effectiveness of projects with satellite technology. They are alsp certified by Verified Carbon Standard, an internationally recognized carbon certificate.

Forest preservation is also very important to support. Currently billions of trees are cut down every year, a meaningful portion done so illegally. Preserving forests is particularly cost-effective compared to planting trees as forest preservation is often set up to protect mature or old-growth forests.
