What we tackle

Lack of trust and knowledge about operational risks.

Climate projects often do not restore nature but just create plantations for short-term carbon storage which cause further harm to ecosystems.

Investors do not posses the technical knowledge to understand the risks of different restoration projects across multiple geographies, whilst current standards do not consider ecosystem resilience.

Systemic Risks

The destruction of nature and the overstepping of planetary boundaries is destroying economic resources.

Regulatory Risks

Governments are defining strict rules for companies to act upon reversing biodiversity loss.

Reputation risks

Companies that destroy forests and biodiversity will not survive on the market in the long term.

“Majority of offset projects that have sold the most carbon credits are ‘likely junk’, according to analysis by Corporate Accountability and the Guardian”

Our approach

A Due Diligence focused on operational risks for tropical forest restoration.

recarb's rating system makes the performance of tropical forest restoration visible, enabling investors to select high-quality projects with science-based impact, credible carbon claims and long-term resilience.

Our due diligence is risk-based, which means projects are evaluated according to the likelihood of success for the chosen forest restoration strategy.
