The Carbon Clock shows how long it will take for the global average temperature to rise by 1.5 °C compared to the pre-industrial era at the current CO₂ emission rate.

The future is in our hands!

Atmospheric CO₂ can be stored in trees. Every tree planted helps us to slow down the clock.

Holistic Approach  Maximum Impact!

We are convinced that reforestation means more than just planting trees. Our approach strives for an ecologically, socially and also economically sustainable solution that benefits everyone.

Effective Climate Action

CO2-Sequestration on 3 Levels

Each tree planted stores carbon. At some stage, its timber will be used in construction whilst still retaining the stored carbon; more trees can grow in its place in the meantime. Furthermore, this will reduce greenhouse gas emissions as steel and concrete are being replaced.

Sustainable Income

Empowered Smallholder Farmers

We work hand-in-hand with hundreds of smallholder farmers in the tropics, equipping them with free tree seedlings and education. Planting trees and intercrops (agroforestry) provides them and their families with sustainable incomes.

Maximum Transparency

Reliable Data About Every Single Tree

In the future, smallholder farmers can scan the planted trees at regular intervals using our TREEO app. This will enable us to track exactly where the trees are located and how they are developing. On our web map, the data is publicly available for everyone to see.
