Biodiversity is essential for all life on Earth. Our actions impact nature and biodiversity every day, and we must take responsibility for nature conservation to ensure a sustainable, healthy future for all. Carbon projects are a great way to support biodiversity regeneration and nature conservation. DGB’s carbon projects demonstrate real outcomes by positively impacting the environment and offering landowners a steady income stream.
A carbon project is evaluated to check if it is in line with our strategy and has a value potential. An early analysis of risks, opportunities, and opportunity costs is done.
A detailed technical feasibility assessment is done to map the project's economic, social, and environmental impacts and opportunities alongside risk analysis and opportunity costs.
Project documentation according to global frameworks of leading standards is drafted by experts, and agreements are entered into with suppliers, partners, investors, and buyers. Staff are hired, and other inputs are secured.
Projects are independently validated and verified under leading standards. They are continuously monitored to ensure carbon capture. Carbon credits are issued.
We are proud to prove, together with the project landowner, that quality, verified carbon farming from native forest conservation can provide a good economic alternative to deforestation. To avoid further deforestation in Kenya, we need solutions that can be implemented immediately, can be scaled, and are bankable.
These are the projects we are successfully running with landowners and investors.
The Bulindi Chimpanzee Habitat Restoration project aims to rapidly restore the declining chimpanzee habitat in Bulindi, Uganda, through active afforestation and community involvement.
This investment, in what is a sustainable forest management process, also helps conserve water in one of Kenya’s key catchment areas.
The project has multiple locations, however, most of the trees are planted in three villages in the Yoko Sub Division in the Centre Region of Cameroon, spanning an area of 2,300–3,000 hectares.
