HOW THE COMMUNITY & CARBON INITIATIVE WORKS
Climate action is urgently needed. You as an individual or your business can be a part of the solution to climate change. Partnering with small-farmer organizations to replant trees and conserve forest systems, we are able to draw carbon out of the atmosphere in a sustainable and impactful way. Work with Grow Ahead to rebalance the unavoidable impact of your daily activities or your business through supporting reforestation and forest conservation projects.
We work with individuals and companies to calculate the carbon footprint of their activities and then match them to specific agroforestry campaigns to help balance out that carbon footprint.
Grow Ahead partners directly with small-farmer organizations to plant trees in agroforestry systems — which means there are plenty of opportunities to “match” individuals and businesses with reforestation campaigns. The campaigns we support plant trees, income-generating crops like coffee and cocoa, and food together in a food-forest system. These systems allow farmers to restore water and nutrients to their soil, which increases food production and pulls carbon out of the atmosphere.
By joining the Community and Carbon Initiative, you or your business can work toward taking responsibility for your carbon footprint the right way: by enabling a community organization to maintain the reforested areas and create lasting positive effects.
