CO2 Offset

With your carbon offset you will be supporting a project on Land Use and Forestry.

The project is located at San Juan de Limay and Somoto, Nicaragua, and it is carried out in collaboration with the MyClimate Foundation.
This community-based reforestation initiative is situated upon a critical watershed that feeds into Nicaragua’s most important estuaries, the Estero Real. This estuary is home to one of the biggest extensions of mangroves and migratory birds in the region, and has been recognized by the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International Importance. By reforesting this region, the programme plays an important role in regulating the hydrological cycle, providing important water and biodiversity benefits both locally and internationally and improves the quality of life of smallholder farmers.

Further information on this project is available here.
