The Greenify planet positive
community supports three types
of projects:

1 - Carbon offset projects
2 - Plastic waste recovery
3 - Tree planting

Certification and verification of impact delivered by the Greenify
community is publicly available in our Impact Ledger here.

  • Carbon offset/forest conservation: Cikel Amazon

    This forest conservation initiative was the first ever Amazon REDD project to achieve VCS verification. Located in Brazil’s Pará State, a region that’s suffered high rates of deforestation for many years, the project was designed with three objectives:

    1. Preserve the carbon stored in the forest’s living

    2. Protect the biodiversity that lives within the forest ecosystem.

    3. Generate an alternative and sustainable income source for the region via the sale of Verified Carbon Units.

    This third objective is the crucial factor that makes any REDD project work –  by generating revenues through the sale of carbon credits, preserving a forest becomes a commercially viable alternative to cutting it down.

    Some limited forest management activities under Forest Stewardship Council® Certification (FSC®) have been permitted to create additional income to helps preserve the viability of the overall project.


    Estimated Annual Emission Reductions: 370,000 tCO2

    Forestry area: 209,130.54 ha

  • Tree Planting: Yucatan, Mexico

    Greenify’s primary tree planting partner is Plant-for-the-Planet (PftP), and we’re delighted to support their world-leading reforestation project in the Yucatan, Mexico.

    PftP took responsibility for 22,500 hectares of degraded environments across the region in 2015, and with a local team of more than 100 people, they’ve planted over 3 million trees to date.

    Planting takes place both in open grasslands that have been entirely deforested, and in degraded forests that have been plundered for their large, high-value trees. Crucially, all new planting is of indigenous species such as Bread Walnut, American Mahogany and the 40m-tall Manilkara Zapota or Chewing Gum Tree.

    There are many locations around the globe that are in desperate need of reforesting, yet the Yucatan is a priority because local conditions enable trees to grow very quickly, capturing and binding carbon far faster than new planting in temperate regions – which makes the PftP Yucatan project a truly high impact climate solution.

  • Plastic Waste Recovery: Project Laut Yang Tenang, Bekasi, Indonesia

    The once-pristine coast of West Java has been overwhelmed in recent years by a flood of plastic waste – threatening wildlife and polluting the marine ecosystem.

    The bulk of this waste is multi-layered plastic (MLP), which has little commercial value and is almost impossible to recycle. So it’s left where it lies, contaminating waterways and washing out to sea, where it breaks down into countless nanoplastic particles.

    A tidal wave of plastic waste

    Project Laut Yang Tenang is pushing back against this plastic tidal wave by funding a network of waste banks, collection services and informal waste workers who intercept MLP before it reaches the ocean.

    Once recovered, the waste plastic is sent for co-processing in industrial kilns, which means the MLP becomes an alternative fuel source, reducing the need to burn wood or fossil fuels, and leaving zero residue.
