Cikel Brazilian Amazon REDD+ Project
About the project.
The CIKEL Project is located in Para State, Brazil, where 63% of the Amazon Rainforest has already been lost. By using sustainable logging practices certified by the Forest Stewardship Council®, CIKEL will continue to avoid the deforestation of 27.4 thousand hectares of rainforest which would have been deforested had traditional logging practices been used. The company is also intensifying and improving its practices to support the sustainable social development, maintaining and improving the biodiversity monitoring the framework of FSC certification and Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) activities.
The main activity of the CIKEL Brazilian Amazon REDD APD Project is the cancelation of the planned deforestation activities and decision to instead conserve the forest area and continue limited forest management activities in the area under Forest Stewardship Council® Certification (FSC®) with Low Impact Logging (SFMLIL) practices.
Also, the company is intensifying and improving its practices to support the sustainable social development, maintaining and improving the biodiversity monitoring at the RCC in the framework of FCS certification and REDD activities. The project will avoid 9,432,299 tCO2 that would have been emitted into the atmosphere over the next ten years.
