Amigos de Calakmul Mexico

To combat the growing threat of climate change, Friends of Calakmul aims to project the forest areas of the Selva Maya by signing conservation agreements, thereby reducing logging and burning in these forests. Friends of Calakmul prevented millions of tons of carbon stored in these trees from being released into the atmosphere. We have contracted with Terra Global Capital, LLC to conduct an assessment to generate carbon credits from the areas under agreement in the Selva Maya in Mexico and to record these credits under internationally accepted standards: the Verified Carbon Standard (Voluntary Carbon Market) and the Alliance for Climate, Community and Biodiversity.

Para combatir las amenazas cada vez más graves del calentamiento global, Amigos de Calakmul lucha contra el cambio climático mediante la protección los macizos forestales de la Selva Maya, mediante la firma de convenios de conservación y con ello se ha reducido la tala y la quema de estas selvas. Amigos de Calakmul ha impedido que millones de toneladas de carbono almacenado en estos árboles sean liberados hacia la atmósfera. Hemos contratado a Terra Global Capital, LLC para realizar una evaluación para generar créditos de carbono de las áreas bajo convenio en la Selva Maya en México y para registrar estos créditos bajo los estándares internacionalmente aceptados del Voluntary Carbon Standard (el Mercado Voluntario de Carbono) y de la Alianza para el Clima, Comunidad y Biodiversidad.
