BlueINDO focuses on Blue Carbon Projects within Indonesia.

Indonesia is an archipelago (archipelagic country) of roughly 17,508 islands, according to the CIA World Factbook.  With a total land area of 1,904,569 square kilometres (735,358 sq mi), including 93,000 square kilometres (35,908 sq mi) of inland seas (straits, bays, and other bodies of water), Indonesia is the largest island country in the world. Additional surrounding sea areas bring Indonesia’s generally recognized territory (land and sea) to about 5 million km2.  [Wikipedia]

About 3 million hectares of mangrove forest grow along Indonesia’s 95,000 km coastline – the fourth largest coastline in the world. Housing 22.6% of all mangroves on Earth, Indonesia boasts the world’s largest mangrove population. It is estimated Indonesia’s mangroves contain 3.14 billion metric tonnes of carbon –  one third of global coastal carbon stocks.

Our project areas are validated and verified by a variety of Greenhouse Gas Emission Standards.  Check out our Knowledge Corner to learn more about these standards, certifications and frameworks.

Deforestation and the destruction of peatlands make Indonesia the world’s third largest emitter of greenhouse gases. Habitat destruction threatens the survival of indigenous and endemic species, including 140 species of mammals identified by the World Conservation Union (IUCN) as threatened, and 15 identified as critically endangered, including the Sumatran Orangutan.
