Making a sustainable impact
with Gula Gula Forest Programs
CO2Operate is partnering with local communities in Indonesia to create a new tropical paradise that benefits both people and the planet.
In West Sumatra, rainforest trees provide shade for fruit and spice trees, creating a Food Forest that benefits the entire community.
Meanwhile, on Timor, the Fashion Forest is taking shape. In addition to kapok and cotton, indigenous trees will grow soon, providing natural dyes for the women of Timor to use in dyeing the cloths they have been producing for generations.
Our mission is to make the world a more beautiful place by improving the well-being of local populations, strengthening biodiversity, and mitigating climate change.
That's why we're working intentionally and collaboratively with Gula Gula to achieve at least three of the United Nations' key sustainability goals.
3x sustainable impact
A Win-Win-Win Solution
CO2Operate recognizes that rural poverty is both a consequence and cause of climate change and biodiversity loss. To combat these issues, we focus on restoring degraded land through natural methods which have the most immediate impact. By prioritizing the culture and needs of local communities, jobs and incomes grow, reducing poverty.
