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 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.
