Purchase ClearSky Offsets
Panama Sustainable Forestry and Reforestation Project
ClearSky worked with Futuro Forestal to design, develop, and implement the Panama Sustainable Forestry and Reforestation Project. From the beginning, this project was designed with the goal of moving toward a positive climate future. The certified carbon offsets available for sale represent greenhouse gas emission reductions that occurred during the first decade of this project.
Initiated in 1995 on only 10 hectares, the project has now reforested over 1,000 hectares of lowland Pacific rainforest in Panama. The project strategy was to purchase degraded or abandoned cattle pastures (typically, plots cleared of forests between the 1950s and 1970s) and employ local people to conduct forest restoration. The project planted over 50 native rainforest species and one exotic timber species (teak), which makes for an exceptionally diverse forest cover. A proportion of the timber is sustainably harvested over a 20-30 year management period, and the project’s emissions reductions are generated by the remaining forest. This project has been an excellent model of environmentally and socially responsible climate action, achieving Forest Stewardship Council certification for sustainable forestry and certification through the First Edition of Climate, Community, and Biodiversity Alliance at the Gold level for environmental and social criteria. This project was designed according to the Clean Development Mechanism methodology AR0004.
