1 Cent Per Mile Slows Deforestation
Your travel will resume-- make it count. Preserve the forests, Indigenous Peoples and biodiversity. Manage climate change for humanity, now for the future. Keep the home of evolved pathogens safe from humans.
You can do all of this for 1 cent per mile traveled (personal & non-profits). The Shabunda project offers trackable and verifiable protection of the forest to match your miles traveled.
For every 500 miles of travel by plane, boat, train or car, your purchase of QuantumQarbon conserves 1 hectare of intact rainforest.
Conservation Is a Passion
Each purchase of QQ supports Step 1 of PAC Shabunda, which helps to empower the sustainable development of the indigenous peoples of the Shabunda Region of the Democratic Republic of Congo. Step 1 QQ results in Avoided Emissions and protects Biodiversity. Step 2 QQ happens in the forest and results in verified net Forest Carbon Sequestration.
3 Cents Per Mile Fulfills Corp. ECSR
Go beyond the typical single-use carbon credit to investment in a legacy of forests, people and the planet. Why should corporations adopt this approach? Without direct measurement, progress towards local, regional and global Environmental Corporate Social Responsibility goals cannot be verified. Compensate the planet for corporate travel with 3 cents per mile resulting in tangible action--each hectare is identified and visible in Google Earth. Combine corporate travel with PaC's QQ units to take control of your corporate environmental programs.
Support Commuities--Slow the Wave
We live in a time when all peoples are connected and actions by a few can affect many. Right now, population growth is placing enormous pressure on the forest. Support communities that live in the forest to slow the wave of environmental change and all of humanity will benefit.
The Value of Land Trusts
Land trusts are at the heart of an immediate and positive response to climate change, but how to implement this response has not been articulated.
One of the goals of this project is to show and articulate how fragments of nature can be restored and conserved within local communities providing tangible benefits. Nature persists among the thousands of acres that land trusts
protect and conserve, some as small as one acre.
Smaller parcels are often ignored by conservation efforts of corporations and large regional greenhouse gas (GHG) trading programs. The value of nature is priceless, but we can place a value on its restoration and preservation.
The Rosewood Preserve represents a land trust parcel that
if not preserved will vanish in the future.
