Who we are

From its local base in Alto Paraguay, near Carmelo Peralta, Quadriz works to develop and promote large-scale REDD+ programs to conserve a maximum of the native Chaco forest.

With a strong local presence in the Chaco, Quadriz is in a unique position to monitor and conserve local Chaco forests through its programs. Vicinity is key, and the “Corazón Verde del Chaco” project is situated only 30 km from the Quadriz base at Santa Rosanna.

The Quadriz team has a combined experience of over 15 years in carbon project development, implementation and forest carbon monitoring under the Verified Carbon Standard. The Quadriz team consists of skilled Carbon market traders, VCS-CCBS Forest Carbon Experts, as well as Agroforestry Engineers and other Forestry professionals.

Its Senior Forest Carbon Expert has experience from leading full technical development (including all technical GHG accounting, running the methodology and monitoring reporting and validation/verification) of a total of 12 VCS/CCBS offsetting projects in US, Brazil, Uganda, Tanzania, and Chile. Quadriz commercial team consists of carbon market sales specialists with extensive experience in the voluntary carbon market as well as compliance carbon markets.
