Mikoko Pamoja is one of the world’s first ‘blue’ carbon credit projects, whose mission it is to protect over 100 hectares of mangrove forest and ensure the re-forestation of a beach and shoreline.
In addition to the environmental benefits of carbon capture and storage, Mikoko Pamoja is a community-led project bringing extensive benefits to the local population.
Validated in 2014, Mikoko Pamoja is a 20-year project carried out under the Plan Vivo Carbon Standard methodology. It achieved its first five-year verification in 2019.
Mangrove trees are a popular choice for reforestation projects due to their high carbon sequestration, desalination and essential habitat capacities.
Projects such as Mikoko Pamoja also provide long-term, community-orientated solutions to the devastating effects of deforestation worldwide.
Hill Robinson’s participation in the project demonstrates its company-wide commitment to offsetting its carbon footprint and leading by example.
