Klim is leading the regenerative agriculture movement, striving for a fully regenerative agricultural system in which farmers and society work together to protect the world's most precious resource: soil. Bringing together companies and farmers, Klim drives regenerative transformation at speed and scale.
Thanks to Klim credits, companies have the unique opportunity to generate local impact, regenerating soil in Germany. Regenerative agriculture stands as one of the most pivotal solutions for addressing the climate crisis while promoting farmers' resilience, water quality, biodiversity, and food security. The principles of regenerative agriculture include year-round soil cover, diverse crop rotations, maintaining living roots, reducing soil disturbance, and integrating animals. By adopting these practices, farmers sequester carbon in the soil, improve soil fertility, and lower emissions through enhanced farm management.
The Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve Project, an initiative by InfiniteEARTH, aims to reduce Indonesia’s emissions by preserving some 64,000 hectares of tropical peat swamp forest. This area, rich in biodiversity including the endangered Bornean orangutan, was slated by the Provincial government to be converted into four palm oil estates. Located on the southern coast of Borneo in the province of Central Kalimantan, the project is also designed to protect the integrity of the adjacent world-renowned Tanjung Puting National Park, by creating a physical buffer zone on the full extent of the ~90km eastern border of the park.
At Exomad Green, the emphasis is on commitment to excellence. While biochar can be sourced from various biomass materials, their primary focus is on utilizing hardwood forestry residues for Tecnochar production. This deliberate choice results in a biochar of unparalleled quality, boasting impressive characteristics and delivering exceptional performance. By harnessing the latent potential of hardwood residues, their efforts extend beyond the creation of an eco-friendly solution to waste accumulation.The Bolivia based project will remove up to 225,000 tons of Co2 per year, making it the largest biochar projects in the world. Beyond this impact, Exomad Green is about creating a better, more sustainable world for everyone. They are striving to improve the quality of life for over 250,000 regional inhabitants, generate green jobs, foster local economic growth, and champion environmental justice across the region.
According to the Thünen Institute, the German forest faces a daunting future due to climate change. By 2050, approximately one-third, nearly 3 million hectares, will require adaptive forest climate management and conservation strategies.
Fortunately, the reforestation and preservation of German forests is currently underway. Environmental company, DEUTIM, has established numerous forestation projects in regional forests across Germany and because trees absorb carbon dioxide during photosynthesis, these projects are effective mechanisms for removing CO2 from the atmosphere.
Through this first project with Senken, businesses can easily support the reforestation and protection of the forest in Rodenbach, on the edge of the Rhein-Westerwald Nature Park.
The first noticeable damage to Rodenbach's forest occurred after cyclones Burglind and Friederike in January 2018. Since 2022, DEUTIM has planted a variety of trees in addition to restoring natural species to build a mixed, more resilient forest.
The project has been appraised and certified by TÜV Nord. Furthermore, the Senken platform adds an additional layer of transparency and trust. By leveraging the blockchain's transparent and tamper-proof nature, it enables secure and immutable recording of carbon transactions, providing price visibility and reducing the risk of double-counting of these climate assets.
The Cordillera Azul National Park REDD+ Project avoids deforestation in a magnificent expanse of lowland and montane forests in four departments in central Peru: San Martín, Ucayali, Huánuco, and Loreto. The area encompasses 1,351,964 hectares inside the national park. The park, owned by the government of Peru, is managed and financed by the Peruvian NGO Centro de Conservación, Investigación y Manejo de Áreas Naturales (CIMA) through a public-private partnership piloted by the Peruvian government. The project’s avoided-deforestation objective is accomplished by strengthening park protection, engaging local communities and other stakeholders in land-use management compatible with conservation, and improving the quality of life of the park’s neighbors. Approximately 180,000 people in more than 200 communities – immigrant and indigenous – neighbor the park. Villagers close to the park mostly practice subsistence agriculture; those closer to major roads engage in market activities as well. CIMA and its close advisor, The Field Museum in Chicago, have worked with communities since 2002 to ensure that the project activities incorporate and reflect the values and aspirations of local residents. The project activities are highly participatory, with villagers leading several efforts and developing competencies that will enable long-term success.The biodiversity in the project area is astounding. Intact forests stretch from lowlands (150 meters) to ragged mountain peaks (2,400 meters). This eastern outlier of the Andes has been isolated sufficiently long for speciation to occur: more than 35 species new to science have been discovered in the park to date. The forests harbor rare and endangered species, as well as abundant populations of animals and plants that are crucial to the well-being of park neighbors.
Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation in Keo Seima Wildlife Sanctuary
The Seima Protection Forest (SPF) covers 292,690 ha. It is located in eastern Cambodia, mainly in Mondulkiri Province with a small area extending into Kratie Province. The REDD+ Project Area covers 166,983 ha of forest in the SPF Core Protection Area. The SPF was created by a Prime Ministerial Subdecree in late 2009. The site is part of the ancestral homeland of large number of ethnic Bunong people, for whom the forest is a key source of income and central to their spiritual beliefs. The area is also a meeting place for two important ecoregions – the Annamite Mountains (notable for high levels of local endemism among evergreen forest species) and the lower Mekong dry forests (which are crucial for the survival of many species typical of lowland deciduous forests). There are 41 Globally Threatened vertebrate species recorded in the Project Area (including 4 Critically Endangered and 14 Endangered). Many of these occur in globally or regionally outstanding populations, including Asian Elephants, primates, wild cattle, several carnivores and birds such as the Giant Ibis and Green Peafowl.Validation approved to the CCB Standards Third Edition, Biodiversity Gold Level, on 16 November 2015. Project formally known as Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation in Seima Protection Forest. PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD: Undergoing verification to the CCB Standards: public comment period: 16th Aug- 22 to 15th Sept-22.
