CO2OL Tropical Mix

Project description

Former fallow and degraded pastureland is reforested with mainly native tree species and turned into ecologically valuable mixed forests. The project aims to combine sustainable timber and cacao production with the protection of biodiversity and ecosystem restoration. Sustainable management creates employment opportunities and ensures knowledge-transfer in close collaboration with local indigenous communities.

CO2OL Tropical Mix is one of the worldwide first Gold Standard forestry projects. The cacao areas were the very first Gold Standard agroforestry areas.
