$LEAF is growing a movement of responsible companies, large and small, that are committed to having a positive impact for people and our planet. $LEAF aim to work with communities, local organizations and NGOs to develop scalable reforestation projects, demonstrating that restoring our degraded landscapes is possible if we all work together.
The world needs to stop deforestation and restore the equivalent of an area the size of India by 2030 (350 m ha) if we want a chance to stay below a 2°C temperature increase.More than 2 billion hectares of land (the equivalent of 50% of the world’s forests) are degraded and have been identified as having potential for forest restoration.
We imagine a world where communities and nations sustainably manage their forests and natural resources for the benefit of our climate, the environment and humanity.
Building upon corporate and scientific partnerships, $LEAF empowers communities to sustainably advance and implement innovative, high-standard, scalable and lasting solutions to restore forest landscapes.
The values that inspire our work are: Integrity, Transparency, Excellence, Collaboration, Passion and Courage.
Our goal is to reach over 100 million trees – equivalent to around 85 000 hectares – restored or conserved by the end of 2040, making a significant contribution to the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration.
$LEAF’s mission is to build upon corporate and scientific partnerships and provide the vision, the resources and the knowledge to empower communities to restore their forests and scale their impact. Collaboration is fundamental to being able to Make Earth Cooler with trees.
"If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants."- Isaac Newton.
The world needs to stop deforesting and restore the equivalent of an area the size of India by 2030 (350 m ha) if we want a chance to stay under the 2°C temperature increase.
It's not about planting trees, it's about the overall result for the environment and for the people who live there. Regaining ecological integrity to enhance human well-being is key to ensure the forest will be protected for the long term.
How will we know the forests restored are growing and have the expected environmental and socio-economic impact they need to have?
First of all, every hectare restored is mapped with GPS points to generate polygons that are assigned to sponsors.
Extensive logframes with KPI’s - combined with regular internal and third party audits - provide the forestry and science teams with the necessary metrics to evaluate and possibly adjust their approach.
The main environmental indicators used are: biomass growth for carbon measurement, tree density, survival rate & species diversity index.
Some of the socio-economic indicators used are: number of direct and indirect beneficiaries, direct and indirect jobs created, number of people trained and additional income generated from alternative livelihood activities.
Our applied science with FAO in India for example measures the rate of water movement through soil, collecting soil samples for lab analysis and conducting dye tracer measurements to understand water movement pathways and patterns through soil.
