Let Your Investments and Business Take Their Responsibility to Eliminate Carbon Emissions
To avoid a climate catastrophe, we need to remove the excess carbon from our atmosphere. The best solution is nature-based:
Reforestation and afforestation of degraded natural habitats is essential to fight climate change.
The bluemangrove project provides over +180'000 ha arid land of depleted or destroyed Mangrove habitats to get restored. Let's act NOW!
A growing number of responsible investors and companies are committed to create a positive impact for people and our planet.

Who are we?
bluemangrove is a private-public partnership with the aim to re-establish mangrove forests along costal lines. We develop investable blue carbon projects.
The bluemangrove project aims at attracting funds from a diverse pool of domestic and international corporations, for-profit investors and non-profit donors.
All our Mangrove reforestation efforts are real, verified, additional and permanent. Although the CDMs are canceled, the baselines AR-AM0014 are still in place. All our efforts (including the SDGs) are scientific measured, governed and monitored following the highest standards.
We are no "Agroforestry" model. We restore large scale depleted ecosystems.
We comply with all ITMO rules for corresponding adjustments.
Our focus is on habitat and permanence. Hopefully, all greenwashing and double counting will be eliminated forever.
Carbon storage above and below ground
The best carbon is the carbon that is never emitted.
We encourage every investor and business to reduce and avoid emissions before choosing the compensation route.
When carbon sequestration is needed, the best technology is nature itself. Forest habitats are an amazing carbon sink: Mangroves sequester carbon two to four times greater than mature tropical forests and store three to five times more carbon per equivalent area than tropical forests like the Amazon rainforest.
For carbon emissions that cannot be avoided, we offer two compensation routes:
Direct Investment in our mangrove plantation. Trees generate carbon credits as they grow over 20 to 30 years allowing you to offset equivalent amounts. While your forest grows, it provides amazing narratives on the positive impacts for people, climate and nature.
We sell Carbon credits for immediate offset. These credits* (or certificates) originate from our Mangrove forest following the baseline of UNFCCC CDM AR-AM0014 for large scale reforestation and afforestation of degraded Mangrove habitats. The outcome of Article 6 of the Paris Agreement and bilateral country agreements will set the new rules for NDCs and ITMOs metrics for the corresponding adjustments, proceeds and adaptation finance. What ever the outcome is, our carbon storage will still follow the strictest standards and the outcome is monitored annually. A specific amount of credits is made available for sale ("vintages"). A number of credits can be reserved in your company's name, i.e. an official registry that guarantees unique ownership. Parts of the funding generated by the carbon sale are returned to develop further plots.

Why engage with us?
We acknowledges our responsibility to promote and invest in a more sustainable economy for society and the planet. We understand that this process is only possible through the engagement of our partners, clients and suppliers.
We are committed to comply with the Paris Agreement to limit global warming to below two degree Celsius and to become carbon neutral by 2030. We even go beyond: The aim is real zero emission in the future. Therefore, we only build real, additional, scientific verified and active carbon sinks with permanence. Our Target is to develop a pipeline of investment grade projects to financing a low carbon future. Nobody will ever get net zero without real GHG removal. GHG reduction and mitigation is needed, but we still continue to pollute and consume our natural resources. We also need to fix nature to build real carbon sinks and to halt negative effects of further warming. We need to go beyond "plant-a-tree" forests. Seedlings and agro-forestry is no forest habitat or healthy ecosystem with permanence. We build on the rich diversity of ecosystems for adaptation, disaster risk reduction and biodiversity to reduce local poverty and prevent civil conflicts.
How to engage with us?
You are an institutional investor seeking exposure to GREEN infrastructure assets and real impact investments. Your funds restore and reforest degraded Mangrove habitats. Where necessary, we also create attached circular, sustainable economies (e.g. honey business, oyster farming and Salicornia fields) to reduce local poverty and to provide food security. This supports the permanence of the blue carbon ecosystem.
Be it voluntary or obligatory, we need to return to our planet what we took from her. Whatever your offsetting needs are, we have a solution for your business. And rest assured. Your funds are channelled towards the highest quality projects possible: Those that accelerate our transition to a sustainable future: real, additional, verified and permanent. We are no agro-forestry, we do not compete with agricultural land. Mangroves do not burn, need no fertiliser and no pesticides.
We go beyond the "plant-a-tree" model. We restore ecosystems and address economic poverty and inequality. Of course, the personal carbon footprint - caused by eating, driving and shopping - can be reduced. But we all have to do more to effectively to solve todays pressing environmental challenges.
We meet many UN Sustainable Development Goals with our projects.
We support the fight against climate change and accelerate the momentum of restoring nature, valuing its diverse services.
We assist governments on conservation, restoration and management of salt-water ecosystems, such as mangrove forests.
We walk proven ground, as we continue to use the findings and output from our existing mangrove reforestation.
We contribute to the development of local communities in their efforts to re-greening their coasts, creating jobs and income.
We fund and restore nature that had been clear-cut by humans and natural disasters. We plant mangrove forests where they used to grow in the past. Mangroves do not need fresh water. They grow in salt and brackish water.
We are proud of working together with our local partners

WE ARE OPEN FOR FUNDING REFORESTATION IN GHANA
We supports policymakers effort to meet their NDCs. In fact, we go beyond the mere reduction and mitigation of CO2e emission plans. We provide next to restoring degraded Mangrove habitats also Nature-based Solutions (“NbS”).
IF ECOLOGICAL DEGRATION LEADS TO POVERTY, THEN ECOLOGY LEADS TO WEALTH
We know that it doesn't make sense to grow trees, unless we address why people are cutting down trees in the first place. In partnership with local communities, we develop powerful nature-based solutions that address both economy and ecology. With our projects we fulfil - evidence proven - the UN Sustainable Development Goals ("UN SDGs").
