GRBI starts Carbon Credits Projects in Honduras with Central American expansion in progress
GRBI has focused in the past years in Carbon Emissions as it is also a landowner with over 30,000.00 Hectares of private forest land in Honduras. In this Emissions Pilot Project GRBI has a participation of 8979.46 Hectares of the overall pilot totaling 30252.90 Hectares.
This is the first REDD+ Project in Central America and our aim is to become leaders in this sector while providing value to landowners, protecting the environment and solid financial results to investors. As part of GRBIs Latin American strategy, we develop and manage agricultural, energy, mining and Carbon Emission Projects with focus in deforestation. Protecting our forests and developing financially sustainable and environmentally friendly projects is our long term business goal.
GRBI has exclusivity in Honduras with GIG (Gran Investment Group) in overall 2.7M hectares with Carbon Emissions Project, Biomass & Energy... more >>>
Years of hard work led to the Warsaw Framework for REDD+ Finance
Negotiators also agreed the Warsaw Framework for REDD+ finance, completing several years of work and backed by $280 million of support from the UK, Norway and the US. The final text allows for a rigorous, transparent framework for measuring emissions reductions from reduced deforestation, along with how safeguards for the environment and livelihoods can be met. This progress paves the way for future REDD+ public-private funding and could pose as a step in the right direction towards future market-based approaches for supporting finance on REDD+.
It takes a results-based finance approach, with cash distributed once developing countries have demonstrated reduced emissions from deforestation providing they submit additional information on safeguards such as livelihood preservation and biodiversity for local communities: key to ensuring the transparency and integrity of REDD+ investments.
Accompanying this was a broader text outlining the modalities for the measuring, reporting and verifying of emissions removed by forests/land-use projects. However, it notes that additional verification procedures could be overlaid for results-based actions that may be eligible to appropriate market-based approaches that could be developed by the Conference of the Parties.
