Co-benefits

The co-benefits of our carbon management projects are an important factor in our approach to selecting the right projects.

Carbon management and clean energy projects are able to contribute to improving the livelihoods of the local communities in a significant way. These co-benefits are a vital part of the goal of creating lasting environmental sustainability. Project co-benefits include programs such as providing access to health care, education for children and even improving surrounding infrastructure.

Climate Friendly also see this as a significant factor in selecting projects and believe that the additional benefits and the ability to correctly quantify them is as important to us as it is to you.
