Ecopare has been awarded The Planet Mark™ Acre of Rainforest Certificate in recognition of our commitment to sustainable improvement through The Planet Mark™ by protecting an acre of the world’s most endangered rainforest.
Why pledge an Acre of Rainforest?
Deforestation contributes up to 20% global CO2 emissions.
The Planet Mark™ is partnering with Cool Earth, the award-winning charity that works alongside indigenous villages to halt rainforest destruction to protect an Acre of Rainforest for every new Business Certificate we deliver.
Our Acre goes directly towards supporting the Asháninka community in Central Peru, whose livelihoods depend on the Amazon rainforest remaining standing. The Asháninka is Peru’s largest indigenous nation. Their territory is at extreme risk from illegal logging and coca trafficking. Cool Earth is working with 16 villages to form a protective shield for the adjacent National Park, making millions of acres of neighbouring forest inaccessible to loggers.
