Blue Carbon Credits issued under OxCarbon Principles
Global Mangrove Trust and Yayasan Gajah Sumatera (YAGASU) are protecting and restoring 2,305 hectares of native mangrove forest in North Sumatra, Indonesia. The Issuance and sale of blue carbon credits funds livelihoods and social programs to align community incentives with long term husbandry of this beautiful and biodiverse, coastal habitat.
For every USD 1 raised, one tree will be supported for one year. Handprint will purchase and retire 25 kg CO2e of OxCarbon certified blue carbon credits for this support. 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.

The Global Mangrove Trust Restoration and Conservation Project in North Sumatra (001-OxC) is the inaugural blue carbon conservation project launched under the OxCarbon Standard by YAGASU and The Global Mangrove Trust Ltd (GMT) with support from Marex Asia Ltd. 001-OxC is a conservation and restoration climate action project regenerating coastal mangrove ecosystems with robust livelihood generation and social program components.
You can now sponsor mangrove trees in YAGASU’s flagship blue carbon project, paving the way for the next-generation of science based climate action. Your sponsorships will enable Handprint to retire carbon credits in your name while creating social and biodiversity co-benefits.
Planting and nursery work is supported by expert foresters and a large contingent of local women's groups.
Pre and post-project data is collected and will be published for open-access public review.
Supporting the local community
Mangrove restoration will ensure long-term livelihoods for local silvofishery businesses, thereby discouraging deforestation.
Sustainable Development Goals Supported by 001-OxC
Our methodology is backed by state of the art science. We use advanced algorithms for carbon calculations, and track impact with remote sensing and machine learning.
With our science partners, Global Mangrove Trust and Kumi Analytics, we’re working at the cutting edge of how to measure carbon absorption from space, driving change to make climate finance accessible to the humblest communities.
Every three months, quantified impact progress updates collected via Handprint's mobile application will be made publicly accessible, making all impact claims evidence-based and scientifically valid.
We use a mobile app to confirm delivery of all funds to the field.
All tree purchases made through this platform will be used to fund the restoration and afforestation work of Yagasu. For every 1 USD raised, Handprint will retire 25kg of OxCarbon credits.
