INVICTO supports the “Guanaré Forest Plantations” in Uruguay, a reforestation project to store CO2 from the atmosphere.
The project covers a total of 21,298 hectares of land previously grazed by beef cattle, where forest plantations have been established to produce high quality, long-lasting wood products and store large amounts of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The forests are based mainly on Eucalyptus grandis plantations in 22-year rotations managed with pruning and two to three thinning operations to obtain large diameter logs suitable for sawing and veneering. Practices are compatible with FSC sustainable forestry standards. Planted forests remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it in various carbon pools (aboveground and belowground biomass, soil, litter) non-tree vegetation, deadwood, and harvested wood products)
The INVICTO team wants to make an active contribution to climate protection and the sustainable use of finite resources. We are continuously working to optimize the carbon footprint of ourselves and our portfolio companies through operational measures.
At the same time, by supporting high-quality, certified climate protection projects, we have been able to not only become a climate-neutral, but climate-positive company for the years 2021 to 2023. This means INVICTO has a positive impact on the overall CO2 balance.
In the last 60 years, we have learned more about our oceans than ever before. From that knowledge, came understanding about the life-giving benefits humans derive from this vast expanse of blue.
The Oceans 2050 team, led by Alexandra Cousteau, is working tirelessly to enable the regeneration of our oceans that have been under severe threat for years, within one generation, by 2050. Oceans 2050 develops environmental projects through which people and businesses in all sectors can contribute to a shared vision of a future with healthy, thriving oceans – for our children and grandchildren.
As volunteer advisors, we are proud to support the renowned Oceans2050 team.
