501 charity with a mission to help global reforestation efforts. The organization is built on a network of individuals, companies and schools that donate monetarily or volunteer to help plant trees around the world. Copaíba currently has 2 active project contracts with them.
State Water Resources Fund – Its objective is to finance programs and actions in the area of water resources, in order to promote the improvement and protection of water bodies and their hydrographic basins. Altogether, Copaíba has already carried out projects for 16 FEHIDRO contracts.
Owners interested in restoring areas of their properties may receive seedlings of native tree species Atlantic forest, supplies for planting the seedlings and technical support before, during and after planting the seedlings.
Owners must be willing to voluntarily plant at least 2,000 seedlings in an area of 1 hectare of land (10,000 square meters) of their property.
In order to be able to execute the program, an analysis was developed that highlights the main areas for restoration, focusing on water conservation. Through local partnerships, the program seeks to mobilize and support landowners located in these areas and together carry out the restoration of their springs and streams.
Program created by WWF Brasil, International Paper and Sylvamo, and in partnership with Copaíba, has already restored, by 2022, 125 hectares and intends to reach a total of 300 hectares of forest by 2025, with the objective of identifying and restoring the riparian forests of the basin of the Mogi Guaçu River and its tributaries, contributing to the conservation of water resources.
Tree-Nation uses its own technology to facilitate the planting of trees, enabling individuals and companies to participate in reforestation projects. Reforestation projects are available on one platform. Each tree on the Tree-Nation platform is assigned its own unique URL, which means it can be gifted and tracked as it grows. Tree-Nation members have a “forest”, which is a custom environment on the platform to see all the trees they have planted. These trees are linked to a certain amount of CO2 offset and can be traced.
Ecosia is a search engine gives web online, which donates at least 80% of its surplus income to non-profit organizations that focus on reforestation and conservationism. With physical headquarters in Berlin, at Germany, Ecosia considers itself a social business, is neutral in relation to carbon dioxide (CO2), claims to support full financial transparency, protects the privacy of its users, and is certified by B-Lab as a charitable corporation.
The website maintains a counter of trees planted. According to Ecosia, more than 140 million trees have been planted with its support by February 2022.
The Verde Mel Project is an initiative to manage native stingless bees from the Atlantic Forest, and is part of the Raízes do Mogi Guaçu Program, a partnership between the company Sylvamo, the ATÁ Institute, WWF-Brasil and Copaíba.
Through the training of farmers, multiplication of bee colonies is carried out. In this way, in addition to a new generation of income in the countryside, with the sustainable management of bees, the productive chains of honey, pollen, wax and propolis are strengthened.
The Project also has research centers and specialized laboratories, carrying out studies on the nutritional and functional characteristics of the products; and partnerships with cooks and chefs, encouraging the development of recipes with products from native bees.
