Up to 25 per cent of global carbon emissions come from the destruction of the rainforest. Forests are already helping to save the world from climate change by absorbing the carbon dioxide we emit into the atmosphere as well as being home to almost half of the world’s biodiversity and helping to sustain the livelihoods of one billion of the poorest people on earth.
Despite this, every year up to 12 million hectares of tropical forest are being destroyed, contributing up to 15 per cent of the world’s carbon emissions – more than from all global transport put together. UBoC can provide an innovative solution to climate change by matching businesses with rainforest projects to facilitate investment in the protection of our planet.
We understand what businesses want and what rainforest protection NGOs can provide. By using the skills of the University of Leeds’ School of Earth and Environment, we have rigorously screened projects which we can partner with appropriate businesses. We can ensure that both parties get what they need. UBoC will support this relationship throughout the project with a quality, professional approach, helping businesses to maximise the benefits of their investment.
UBoC are currently developing new projects in the UK too.
