Every time you shop with Cocoa Yacht Club, you will be contributing to offsetting harmful carbon emissions. When your items are shipped, we will pay to reduce carbon emissions.
What are carbon offsets?
A carbon offset reduces the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere so that increased greenhouse gases elsewhere have a net impact of 0. For example, suppose a truck releases 150 g of CO2 in one mile, and actions to preserve a forest remove 150 g of CO2 from the atmosphere. If you purchase one carbon offset that supports forest preservation for each mile that a truck travels, then the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere remain the same.
What project does will your effort fund?
The costs incurred solely by Cocoa Yacht Club, to offset harmful carbon emissions, will fund the Jarí Para REDD+ Avoided Unplanned Deforestation project with Pachama. This is a Verified Carbon Standard certified project that will be verified by Pachama using their monitoring technology. Proceeds provided by Cocoa Yacht Club, when you shop, go towards protecting the existing forest, improving the biomass through better forest management practices, and verifying the progress of the project.
