Support forest conservation

Carbon Tanzania is a social enterprise. Our innovative approach to habitat conservation is based on selling carbon offsets that result from keeping carbon locked up in forest ecosystems. These forests are owned by indigenous communities who earn an income from the sale of these offsets, funds that are used for community development needs.


We are committed to a globally vital service – keeping trees in the ground for the benefit of local and global communities.


Trees plant trees, when we protect ecosystems we allow trees to sustain themselves and give life.


We link Tanzania’s threatened forests and their communities with the international carbon market.


We work closely with community members to promote and support sustainable rural development. We are a network organisation drawing on a wide range of partners to achieve our goals.


We understand that when forest communities genuinely own their natural resources, and the rights to manage these resources, they will act to protect and preserve them.
