Thanks to your support, we contribute together to:
Reforest and restore the Andean forest with more than 30 endemic species;
Protect a unique ecosystem in the world, one of the richest in biodiversity of all mountain ecosystems;
Protect water resources;
Secure incomes for dozens of families;
Act to mitigate climate change;
Contribute to creating carbon/CO2 wells;
Protect bees, pollinate and secure income for communities.
Funding for community reforestation activities corresponds to:
- The production of trees in community nurseries
- The animation of the Nursery Network and training
- The identification of plots and beneficiaries
- The logistics and delivery of the trees
- Plantation activities
- The trees’ protection when needed
- The geolocation of reforested plots
- Tracking N+1
- Coordination and strengthening of the reforestation program
- The administration and operation of Impulso Verde
- Conducting a detailed annual report
Impulso Verde also includes in the plantation budget a contribution to an innovation fund (4%) to improve nursery propagation, field planting and/or follow-up techniques, as well as a contribution to a children’s awareness-raising fund to Biodiversity (4%).
Impulso Verde is committed to:
Geolocate by GPS the reforested or restored plots, with the name of the beneficiaries, number of trees and species planted
Ensuring monitoring of plantations
Give access to photos and videos of the project during the year so you can communicate with your stakeholders
Deliver a detailed annual report (in Spanish, English or French)
Welcome the possible ambassadors of your company who would like to visit the project (Green Team, winners of an internal competition to the company, …)
If the storage of carbon by the trees is considered:
Estimate the amount of carbon stored by the plantations, based on the certification reference “Solidarity Reforestation” of the certification company Ecocert.
Most of the funds used to finance tree planting and monitoring activities come from sponsoring companies that wish to offset their carbon footprint after taking internal measures to measure and reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. As part of this voluntary initiative, sponsors choose to directly support organizations that carry out projects in the field, without going through the carbon financial market (purchase of carbon bonds).
