Blue Carbon Credits issued under OxCarbon Principles
Global Mangrove Trust and Yayasan Gajah Sumatera (YAGASU) are protecting and restoring 2,304 hectares of native mangrove forest in North Sumatra, Indonesia. The Issuance and sale of blue carbon credits via OxCarbon Standard funds livelihoods and social programs to align community incentives with long term husbandry of this beautiful and biodiverse, coastal habitat. For every USD 40 raised, Handprint will purchase and retire metric ton of OxCarbon certified blue carbon credit. Proofs of retirement are available to companies and individuals sponsoring these retirements on ready request. Larger buyers may connect to Global Mangrove Trust and/or Handprint to retire credits directly.
