The project


Prevention of GHG emissions that would have been generated through the planned forest clearance and conversion of the area to industrial acacia plantations

At its heart, the Katingan Mentaya Project is helping to mitigate climate change by preventing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) from deforestation, degradation, and drainage of a vast area of tropical peat swamp forest.

The project delivers credible GHG emission reductions through avoided deforestation and forest degradation, whilst preventing peat drainage, oxidation, and fires. By doing this, the project aims to enhance ecological values at the landscape scale through ecosystem restoration, including replanting degraded areas and rewetting drained peatland.

Through the role of Monitoring, Reporting and Verification (MRV), the KMP undergoes a rigorous process of managing the measurement of the project’s biomass/carbon, biodiversity and social performance as a basis for continuous improvements to management and compliance with the requirements of certification bodies.

The project partners use the latest technology available and combine remote sensing techniques with ground-based monitoring. The project adheres to the strict guidelines of the VCS, CCB and Climate Action Reserve and one hundred percent of our carbon offsets are verified against broadly accepted standards by independent third-party verifiers. The KMP is triple gold certified ensuring the social co-benefits and safeguards of the project are to the highest standard.
