Project description

Yagasu has over two decades of experience in mangrove reforestation in coastal ecosystems. Mangrove trees are arguably the most efficient carbon sequestration technology we have on earth. The trees form deep roots underground that solidify the soil and end up storing close to 75% of the carbon there.

Besides storing heaps of carbon, mangroves also create beautiful habitats where wildlife can thrive. In addition, coastal communities develop economic activities in harmony with mangrove forests such as crab farming and sustainable fisheries. Yagasu works with them to develop these livelihood projects. This ensures that people do not need to return to the chopping down of trees to earn a living. This is how we build long-term sustainable impact. And we could not do it without the help of companies like yours!

You may wonder, why are we, an American company, supporting mangrove reforestation all the way in Indonesia rather than closer to home?
And that is a fair question. For us, the reason is simple. Climate change is a global problem. The climate does not really care whether we remove carbon from the atmosphere in Miami or in Indonesia. But, if we do it in Indonesia, the secondary benefits, in terms of livelihood support and local economic development are vastly greater than if we work in Miami (where they also have mangroves).
Moreover, Indonesia is also very exposed to adverse weather effects (remember the 2004 tsunami?) and mangroves are proven to diminish the impact cyclones, tsunamis, and hurricanes have once they hit land. These are truly miracle trees.
