Rimba Raya REDD+

CO2 per capita

Type: Carbon Offset

Location: Indonesian Borneo
Intervention: Peatland Protection REDD+
Verification: Verra, CCB, SDVista

The Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve is located in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo, and is one of the largest REDD+ peatland forest projects in the world, avoiding nearly 130 million tonnes of carbon emissions.

Rimba Raya provides a buffer zone between the palm oil industry and the Tanjung Puting National Park, home to one of the last remaining wild populations of orangutans on earth.

In 2020, the project became the first REDD+ project in the world to be audited for compliance under the SD Vista Standard – achieving the highest possible rating of contributing to all 17 UN SDGs.
