Wasa for the madre de dios project
MADRE DE DIOS PROJECT
The project consists in the preservation of 100,000 hectares (that is about 250,000 acres) of rainforest, located in the Peruvian Amazon.
This area is an ecological corridor and one of the world’s biodiversity hotspots. Without a conservation plan, illegal logging and slash-and-burn farming would cause further widespread deforestation and a consequent rise in CO₂ emissions.
The project helps to avoid deforestation and protects biodiversity as well as the livelihood of local communities. Thanks to the project 700,000 tons CO₂ of emissions are avoided from the atmosphere each year. Wasa compensate equivalent to ca 18,800 of CO₂.
The Bendesol India project activity involves the installation of solar panels in different Indian states (Telangana, Uttarakhand, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Maharashtra).
