Via Green Institute will plant a native seedling for each ton of CO2e offset in the transport operations of its clients and partners, helping to recover degraded areas.

Technology to be employed by the Degraded Area Recovery project activity

The planting of forests and management techniques will be designated based on the local knowledge built by the research/planting activities conducted by the staff of the Via Green Institute partner company through the elaboration of the TECHNICAL RECOVERY PROJECT. Forestry activities include preparation of the planting site, obtaining suitable seedlings, planting seedlings and maintaining planting.

CHOICE OF
SPECIES

After the preparation of the land, the choice of species will be determined by performing a floristic survey, carried out in vegetation areas similar to what previously existed on the site. These studies make it possible to visualize the species in this type of formation.

FRONTS AND ITS IMPACTS

CLIMATE
CHANGES
  • CO2e offsetting.
  • Fighting global warming.
  • Improvement of water quality (bathing and agricultural irrigation).
  • Increased flow.
  • Increased storage of groundwater.
  • Cycle balance, preventing flooding.
Water
Ground
  • Gradual reduction of erosion.
  • Reduced compaction.
  • Increased fertility.
  • Infiltration and water retention in soil.
  • Waste retention (fertilizers and pesticides).
  • Improved nutrient cycling.
  • Improved temperature conditions.
  • Decrease in wind speed.
  • Increased relative humidity.
MICRO CLIMA
BIODIVERSITY
  • Conditions of food, shelter and water for wildlife.
  • Natural corridor, ensuring the displacement, reproduction and genetic variability of the region.
  • Protection of micro-fauna.
  • Adequacy of the current legislation on areas of preservation.
