WHAT IS
RIMBA RAYA?

Rimba Raya is a living example
of an economically viable
alternative to deforestation.

  • Rimba Raya is the largest REDD+ project in the world, in terms of avoided emissions delivered to date, protecting nearly 65,000 hectares of peat swamp forest in Central Kalimantan in Indonesian Borneo and avoiding more than 130 million tonnes of carbon emissions.

  • Rimba Raya is also the world’s largest privately-funded orangutan sanctuary.

  • Rimba Raya developes livelihood programmes in surrounding villages (addressing all 17 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals) to provide education, employment and hope for the future.

  • Rimba Raya is an InfiniteEARTH Project.

Rimba Raya was the first validated REDD+ project – ever – under the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) and helped define the criteria by which all projects are measured.

We were also the first REDD+ forest-carbon project in the world to receive triple-gold validation under the Climate Community and Biodiversity Alliance Standard (CCBA)

.

  • Rimba Raya, nearly the size of Singapore, protects one of the most highly endangered ecosystems in the world.

  •  We form a vital patrolled buffer zone between the ever-encroaching bulldozers of the palm oil industry and the Tanjung Puting National Park, home to one of the last remaining wild populations of orangutans on earth.

OUR MISSION

At Rimba Raya, we partner with local communities to develop solutions which provide sustainable growth of the economy while protecting and preserving limited and vulnerable natural resources.

We strive for operational exceptionalism across three industry standard measures:

OUR EFFORTS MATTER

Our measurable contribution to emission avoidance
is the equivalent of removing one million cars from the world’s highways every year for the next 30 years.

Very very sad. Please cut your plastic bottle rings...a small act that can save the lives of innocent creatures.THE HEART-BREAKING REALITY OF PLASTIC! 😢
On Thursday last week, Ed took this tragic photo of a Reed cormorant caught in a plastic bottle ring. Just 3 days later, the bird was found dead, having either starved to death or drowned. PLEASE cut your plastic rings before throwing them in the bin. Or better yet, into the recycling bin, or perhaps put the pieces into an eco-brick! It will only take a few seconds and you will save our wildlife. A huge thank you to Elaine Reed from Elaine's Birding & Wildlife Products who went searching for the bird, and to Phillip from Austin Roberts Bird Sanctuary who assisted her.
