ARFI CO² Program

With this particular program you can offset your CO² produced by directly sponsoring your own virgin plot of Atlantic Rainforest in Bahia/Brazil. All land adopted by you is transferred into a natural reserve „RPPN“. You can visit your sponsored land on our main entry page where you can leave your trace behind on the interactive map. Or even better – visit us and your sponsored land personally in Brazil, this is truly unique.

With this program you invest into the idea of preserving the Atlantic Rainforest NOT into the idea of whitewashing your bad CO² conscience.
This is an ON-TOPIC-PROJECT, this means we invest your donated money directly and 100% into our project to save the Atlantic Rainforest. Like this you invest into the future of our children! To have something to go on in how much you should invest into this sustainable program, ARFI provides you with some CO² facts. The following data is based on average values and can vary from your personal CO² emissions. Our program appraises one ton CO² with the amount of € 42, which again is an average value on costs.

YOUR PERSONAL CO² FOOTPRINT BY THE YEAR:
An average Swiss citizen produces 6.5 tons of CO² a year, an average EU citizen 8.6 tons, an average American 19.4 tons and an average Brazilian 1.8 tons – Example EU citizen : 8.,6 t CO² x Euro 42.- = € 361.20
