The only viable solution to protect and conserve the Paraguayan Chaco’s native forest and its carbon sinks is through REDD+ and the issuance of high-quality carbon offsets.
High-quality verified carbon offsets provide corporates an opportunity to invest in Nature-Based Solutions to offset their unavoidable carbon emissions from manufacturing and supply chain.
This type of investment is known as carbon financing, and it allows project developers and managers, such as Quadriz, to finance the protection and conservation of the native forests against deforestation, and to commence social programs for local communities and preservation monitoring programs for biodiversity. Corazón Verde del Chaco Project is a perfect example hereof.
Quadriz develops all forest conservation projects as per the VM0007 Methodology Framework for Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and land Degradation (REDD+). Certification is done as according to Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and verified by an independently third party auditor. Additionally the projects are certified under CCB (Climate, Community & Biodiversity Standards) with Gold Level distinction for exceptional biodiversity benefits.
Carbon financing enables Quadriz to further scale its REDD+ conservation efforts to reduce emissions from avoided deforestation and to alleviate pressure on natural forest habitat across the Chaco Region in Paraguay and to protect the Chaco’s diverse and ecologically rich ecosystems, and thereby help the planet mitigate climate change. Without large-scale conservation measures, much of the remaining forest in the Paraguayan Chaco will remain at significant risk of exploitation.
Quadriz had its flagship REDD+ Corazón Verde del Chaco Project (VCS 2611) validated and registered during spring 2023 and in June 2023 the first monitoring period 2020-2021 was verified to issue VCUs (Verified Carbon Units) with vintages 2020 and 2021.
Apart from its REDD+ carbon project portfolio, Quadriz also manages the carbon prefinancing, sales and marketing of sister-company Investancia Paraguay, a ARR project proponent for reforestation activities with the near-validated Impact Reforestation in the Chaco Project (VCS 2496)
Whilst actively contributing to the conservation of one of the world’s main carbon sinks, corporates also benefit from measurable co-benefits that align with the Paris agreement and contribute to the majority of the 17 UN Social Development Goals (SDGs). Investors profit from an increased ESG score, boosted brand perception locally and globally. Further, investing in carbon offsets from sustainable REDD+ projects help attract responsible investors as well as increase employee and stakeholder engagement.
