VERRA VCS 0832 Forestry Carbon Offset in Brazil

Spread the word

The Institute assists companies and individuals to go carbon neutral by offering wholesale prices direct from the trading floor of the global carbon spot exchange.

We negotiate bulk discounts for our 750,000 followers, allowing us to pass on the best market price. Trading floor offers move rapidly, so the Institute selects the project and after your purchase you receive the project specifications on your Carbon Offset Certificate.

Projects can include wind, solar, hydro, biomass energy recovery, geothermal and GHG abatement. This offer does not apply to people who want to choose a particular project type.

These carbon offset credits are issued by the the Verra Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) Program, the world’s leading greenhouse gas (GHG) crediting program. VCS projects have reduced or removed nearly one billion tons of carbon from the atmosphere and drives finance toward activities that reduce and remove emissions, improve livelihoods, and protect nature.

  • Upon purchase, you will be issued with a certificate from the Verra Registry with the serial numbers of your Verified Carbon Units (VCUs) which you can verify on the registry website.

The Climate Change Institute is a name you can trust with an independent verification process. We also provide an emission reduction program and GHG accounting tutorials. The Institute believes that climate friendly companies should be recognised by consumers. When you buy offsets we grant you the right to use our logo on your website, packaging or where anyone comes into contact with your brand. We are also happy to provide free editorials through our social media network of over 750,000 followers.

The CIKEL Project is located in Para State, Brazil, where 63% of the Amazon Rainforest has already been lost. The project plans to prevent almost 9.5 million tonnes of CO2e from entering the atmosphere over a 10 year period. By using sustainable logging practices certified by the Forest Stewardship Council®, CIKEL will continue to avoid the deforestation of 27.4 thousand hectares of rainforest which would have been deforested had traditional logging practices been used. The company is also intensifying and improving its practices to support the sustainable social development, maintaining and improving the biodiversity monitoring using the framework of FSC certification and Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) activities.

Forests are more than just carbon. In the Cikel project, biodiversity plays a vital role. The Cikel area is part of the Amazon, the largest remaining rainforest on our planet. The Amazon is known for its amazing biodiversity; it contains 15% of all species. The Cikel area is home to some endangered species, such as the rare Ka’apori monkey, that rely on the forest for their survival.

Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD) was originated by the United Nations to help stop the destruction of the world’s forests. “REDD+” goes beyond deforestation and includes the role of conservation, community development and job creation, and enhancement of forest carbon stocks among other benefits.

By supporting the CIKEL project through the purchase of carbon credits you not only foster the removal of CO2 from the atmosphere but support a plethora of socio-economic and environmental co-benefits arising from the project’s activities

Summary of benefits:

  • Protection of vital tropical rainforest from planned deforestation
  • Over 9 million tonnes of CO2e avoided or removed
  • Protection of biodiversity, including rare endangered species
  • Improving the quality of life of those involved in the project through education, improved medical facilities, and natural resources
  • Employment opportunities for local men and women
  • Opportunities for scientific research

Agriculture Forestry and Other Land Use (AFOLU)


These types of projects combine both reforestation and afforestation activities with biodiversity protection and ecosystem regeneration, ultimately transforming lands into close-to-nature forests that sequester large amounts of carbon. Forests also offer a natural habitat for native wildlife, enrich the soil, save and filter water and help mitigate the greenhouse effect by acting as a carbon sink.


Climate Reforestation projects can lack investment due to marginal, hard-to-reach locations. The project can boost local small economies by creating local employment during both the construction and operational phases, stimulating climate skills technology in developing countries


AAR projects generates a range of significant environmental and socio-economic benefits. By mixing afforestation and reforestation activities, these projects conserve remaining forests and promotes ecosystem interconnectivity by establishing ecological corridors. This improves biodiversity, and studies on the local flora have been developed through collaboration between regional NGOs. The project further protects natural resources, with trees shielding the soil from erosion to prevent flooding and optimise water quality. Where possible, minimal amounts of only the least harmful pesticides are used, softening the environmental impact of chemicals.


Income from secure job opportunities with legal protections for workers helps alleviate local poverty, with leadership and development programs also offered to employees. The project educates the community on climate change and the importance of sustainability activities.



The Verra Registry issues carbon credits, each is equivalent to one tonne of CO2e. It is the central repository for all information and documentation relating to Verra projects and units. The Verra Registry also ensures the uniqueness of projects and credits in the system. Projects are subject to a rigorous verification process and Verra’s diligence and transparency underpins the positive outcomes of carbon projects it certifies.
