CARBON FIX - TERRA BOA

The Carbon Fix - Terra Boa Project is a forest carbon project. Carbon removals from the atmosphere are held by restoration of native forest vegetation of degraded unmanaged grasslands, through photosynthesis, the carbon is fixed in vegetal structures mainly timber. The compensation of Greenhouse Gases Emissions from companies and institutions will be reached via plantation of native trees saplings, counting more than 80 species per hectare restoring Atlantic forests of Permanent Preservation Areas and Legal Reserve Areas of the Terra Boa Farm, located in the city of  Guararapes, state of São Paulo, Brazil. This project encloses a 391.37 hectares area occupied by unmanaged grasslands.

The project will implement ecological corridors linking every forest remnant inside the property’s limits and to water courses.

About 114,382.00 tons of CO2 equivalent will be fixed in the reforested areas until 2029, when the reforested areas will be reaching it´s climax.
