Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation
These are projects that generate carbon credits from the 30-year conservation of an existing native forest. There are two types of REDD+ project:
A barrier to deforestation
Brazil was the country that lost the most primary forest cover in 2022, 43.1% of the total (WRI/GFR). A total of 1.8 million hectares were deforested (equivalent to 15 times the area of the city of Rio de Janeiro), resulting in the emission of 1.2 Gt of CO2.
Compared to 2021, it was a 15% increase. The most accelerated loss occurred in the Western Amazon, in the states of Amazonas and Acre, the new frontier of deforestation known as "AMACRO".
Almost 20% of the original area of the Amazon has already been deforested, and different studies indicate that the forest is close to reaching its point of no return, i.e. when it will no longer be able to recover and regenerate, starting a process of savannization of the tropical rainforest Among other impacts, this would change the rainfall regime in South America and could generate new areas of desertification in Brazil.
In this scenario, REDD+ projects are proving to be an important tool in the challenge of bringing illegal deforestation to zero and also reducing legal deforestation in areas exceeding the Legal Reserve.
48% of Brazil's annual emissions are generated by changes in land use and forests

Check out what some landowners have been saying
“I recommend brCarbon to other producers. With the price of beef today, one of the best solutions is to produce in a sustainable way, while preserving the forest, and I'm not afraid to recommend brCarbon to anyone because I believe it will be a great solution for us, cattle ranchers.”
“I am a supporter of both the company and the way it is conducting the process: serious, transparent, involvement of the surrounding community, independent evaluations and audits. We're pleased with it and the projections and calculations are very attracting. Today it is more profitable to keep the forest preserved than to raise cattle in the same area.”
