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.
Help us reach more people so they know how we support our community and our forest. Without REDD+ carbon credits, we would not survive and our forest would have been converted into an oil palm plantation years ago. We are working hard to make sure that NEVER happens.
Help us by sharing this post and making sure people know about us!We are proud to manage and support the Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve through the sale of carbon credits. The income gained from these credits give the community opportunities they would not otherwise have had. Carbon credits also support and maintain the rich biodiversity in the concession. The SDG's guide us and ensure we make as large an impact as possible on the community, forest and all the endangered species we protect.
