The main focus of the Celestial Green Ventures REDD+ projects is protecting areas of rainforest at risk of deforestation, in the Brazilian Amazon. Through the activities of protecting, conserving and monitoring these areas, a combination of benefits are generated in the project areas.
We enable the local communities to get actively involved and engaged in the project by generating tangible and sustainable enhancements to their way of life. These include healthcare, education and infrastructure improvements as well as employment opportunities and economic sustainability.
Our projects also provide protection and conservation of biodiversity, as a direct result of avoiding and preventing deforestation. They ensure that there is no net loss of biodiversity through any of our project activities or programmes implemented.
Celestial Green Ventures REDD+ projects are developed and implemented in accordance with the Natural Forest Standard (NFS). This uniquely designed risk-based, standard focuses on natural forest projects that integrate social, biodiversity and carbon benefits.
Through successful implementation of our projects, following the requirements of the NFS and with third party validation and verification certification by ISO compliant organisations, our projects are issued with Natural Capital Credits.
