Representatives from Quadriz met with the Minister of the Ministry of Environment and Sustainable Development (MADES).
To support the fight against climate change, corporate actors must navigate a growingly complex vernacular - with objectively far too many acronyms - as they plan their pathways to a low carbon economy.
Quadriz, Paraguay’s leading REDD+ project developer, has been rated by Sylvera, the most transparent and in-depth carbon credit rating available.
As a member, Quadriz will access the most up-to-date and credible information on greenhouse gas emissions trading and global market developments.
Verra has commenced a 30-day public comment period for CCB Verification of the 2023 monitoring period on Quadriz’ REDD+ carbon project named ‘Corazón Verde del Chaco Project’. Comments are invited from the public.
New research published in the journal Nature validates forests as an absolutely critical climate solution, which must be protected and restored if there is to be any chance of reaching global climate mitigation ambitions, and staying within 1.5 degrees of global warming.
Carbon markets are an important tool to help businesses mitigate their unavoidable carbon emissions. Now, a newly released report from the World Economic Forum offers corporates a playbook for their corporate climate action, including how to engage meaningfully with carbon offsetting.
Paraguay President approves new ‘Carbon Credits’ Bill, which was recently passed in the Paraguayan Senate, in a bid to position the country as a global leader in the regulation of carbon credits, and increase access to high-quality projects for global carbon markets.
New analysis has discovered that REDD+ projects are effectively slowing the rate of deforestation by, in some countries, more than ten times the baseline project figures. The study debunks recent media sensationalism targeting REDD+ projects in a flurry of articles claiming they are ineffective.
Jaguar Legacy Fund GP Inc., a fund operating company, has retired VCUs from the REDD+ Corazón Verde del Chaco Project in Paraguay, to compensate its corporate emissions and directly help support the conservation of “one of the last great wilderness areas on earth.”
Global warming is a serious concern for the Earth due to the disrupting nature of the planet’s ecosystems which are crucial for human and ecosystem survival.
A new survey capturing the sentiment around Voluntary Carbon Markets (VCM) has shown optimism about its future growth in the coming years.
Verra has commenced a 30-day public comment period for CCB Verification of the 2022 monitoring period on Quadriz’ REDD+ carbon project named ‘Corazón Verde del Chaco Project’. Comments are invited from the public.
New research reveals that companies that purchase carbon offsets do more to cut down their own internal greenhouse gas emissions that those who do not offset. The findings appear to contradict a series of bad press that recently dismissed carbon offsets as an ineffective tool for decarbonisation.
Dive into innovative solutions and strategies that enable businesses to offset emissions, reduce carbon footprints, and promote sustainability in maritime transport. Discover the benefits, success stories, and the transformative role of voluntary carbon markets in shaping a greener future for global shipping.
The project is the largest Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation (REDD+) carbon project in Paraguay. Using carbon finance, the project protects thousands of hectares of forest threatened by deforestation as well as preserving habitat for endangered birds, plants and mammals, some of which are found nowhere else on earth.
The race is on to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 43% by 2030. Overshooting this target would see the world exceed 1.5°C of global warming compared to pre-industrial levels and the most destructive climate impacts.
What are the benefits of REDD+projects, and why are they so important? This article covers some of these - what are known as co-benefits - of REDD+ programmes. From green job creation to crop security and reduced risk of extreme drought, we take a look at some of the key benefits of preserving and restoring forests.
The forest of the Paraguayan Chaco, like the neighbouring Amazon, is a haven for animals that face extinction if the forest is not kept in tact. Today, the Paraguayan Chaco is losing its forest cover, due to land use change, faster than most places on earth.
Investancia Paraguay S.A. has restarted the 30-day public comment period on its VCS+CCB ARR carbon project named 'Impact Reforestation in the Chaco Project"
The new Voluntary Carbon Markets Integrity Initiative (VCMI) and its Claims Code of Practise includes a four-step process for corporates to make credible claims about their use of voluntary carbon offsets, as well as a labelling scheme to rank company climate credentials.
Verra has commenced a 30-day public comment period for CCB Verification on Quadriz’ VCS+CCB REDD+ carbon project named ‘Corazón Verde del Chaco Project’. Comments are invited from the public.
Investing in nature-based solutions (NbS) to limit global warming has the potential to drastically reduce greenhouse gases and provide myriad other benefits. NbS related to forests can provide 5 gigatons of CO2 emission reductions and removals every year that could be instrumental in keeping 1.5 degrees of warming within reach.
The Gran Chaco is South America’s second-largest native forest area and is home to vulnerable wildlife and a threatened ecosystem.
How corporates can, and must, take meaningful action to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.
As the natural world approaches critical climate tipping points, research shows investor awareness of conservation finance opportunities is growing. Quadriz considers why and how private capital should be mobilised faster for greater financial and ecological returns.
The highly anticipated UN climate meeting, COP26, is just one week away. National governments, campaign groups, corporates and climate investors will come together to address the biggest challenges of our lifetime at the climate conference, with the race to cut carbon emissions taking centre stage. But how could the conference impact rules around emissions trading schemes, like compliance based offsetting, and what does it mean for net zero strategies?
The latest Ecosystem Marketplace report is packed with good news for the sector and the planet, with the value of the Voluntary Carbon Markets on track to hit $1 billion USD in 2021, for the first time. Quadriz breaks down the latest trends and analysis on the state of the Voluntary Carbon Markets.
Quadriz has commenced the 30-day public comment period on its VCS+CCB REDD+ carbon project named ‘Corazón Verde del Chaco Project’. Comments are invited from the public.
Quadriz is celebrating the first successful three months of biodiversity impact monitoring for its REDD+ Corazón Verde del Chaco project.
Reducing carbon emissions is vital to reverse global warming and combat climate change. Measuring and offsetting scope 3 emissions is essential for successful corporate climate action.

For the first time since 2017, more carbon offsets were retired than were issued in the first quarter of 2021, when compared to the same period in previous years.
Not all carbon offsets are created equal. In fact, some are outdated and no longer meet the standards of top carbon offset certification organisations. Some do not do what they claim to do. They are unfit for the global voluntary carbon market.
Nature-based solutions are essential in the fight to tackle climate change. Ensuring combined efforts and involvement from private and public sector in Nature-Based Solutions could amount to significant development in the fight against climate change.
While deforestation in Latin America has typically been focused on the rapid destruction of the Amazon, the second largest forest in South America, the Gran Chaco, stretched between Paraguay, Argentina and Bolivia, ranks as the number one deforestation hotspot on earth. Climate change and its effects is greatly linked to the loss of biodiversity and the rapid destruction of these forests.
The notion of environmental governance, where private and public sectors get involved on several levels, assists to the importance of scalability of REDD+ programs.
The conservation of biodiversity is crucial for both, the survival of ecosystems and of humans. The loss of biodiversity is caused by the over-exploitation of resources thus corporations must take rapid actions against environmental degradation.
Quadriz B.V., the trading and carbon project arm of forestry and agro-research company Investancia, is excited to announce it is partnering with Ostrya Conservation Inc. and Atenil S.A. on the largest REDD+ project to date in the Paraguayan Chaco.
