The fields of Cerro Largo, Uruguay, previously dedicated to extensive cattle farming, now have another purpose thanks to the Guarané Project.
We collaborate with this initiative which, thanks to reforestation, manages to retain 127,416 tonnes of CO2 each year before it is released into the atmosphere.
By converting these spaces into sustainably managed land, we help to absorb the equivalent of the emissions of more than 1.5 million private vehicles each year.
The project, which covers a total of 21,298 hectares, will not only ensure the recovery of natural areas, but will also provide a source of stable and sustainable employment for around 1,000 people in the area, minimising rural poverty.
It is estimated that during the 22-year life cycle of the project, the reclaimed area will be able to absorb no less than 7,644,960 tonnes of CO2 through the planting of mainly eucalyptus.
We work to transform landscapes and realities, and not just in Uruguay.
