CarbonSocial credits are an important part of the WithOneSeed program – a social enterprise to support subsistence farmers in Timor-Leste to re-establish and maintain the forests where they live.
Reforestation is a key response to global climate change. It’s a ‘no regrets’ approach as it provides a highly effective form of carbon capture and storage while reducing soil erosion and degradation, improving the habitat, restoring the water table, and boosting crop yields and nutrition.
Since 2009, WithOneSeed has been working with subsistence farmers in Timor-Leste to generate income through community forestry. The program is improving the natural environment, building local economies, increasing the health of communities and reducing global greenhouse emissions.
With just one simple action, you can join the community of people taking real action on climate change.
You now have the opportunity to purchase from the ﬁrst release of CarbonSocial credits – the only Gold Standard-certiﬁed carbon credits available from Timor-Leste.
Every CarbonSocial credit purchased removes a tonne of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, supports subsistence communities, and helps replenish the planet.
It’s carbon offsetting + ethical, social, environmental and economic impacts.
