Katingan Mentaya Project
The Katingan Peatland Restoration and Conservation Project is the world's largest forest-based avoided emissions project based in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia, protecting and restoring 149,800 hectares of peatland. It is expected to prevent over 447,000,000 tCO2e emissions over a period of 60 years, from 1 November 2010 to 31 October 2070.

Tembopata Bahuaja Reserve Project
This project combines the Tambopata National Reserve and the Bahuaja-Sonene National Park, which are both internationally recognised biodiversity hotspots in the Peruvian Amazon.
This project is creating an economic buffer zone around a 591,119-hectare forest (an area about the size of Los Angeles). By helping local farmers transition to sustainable cocoa production, degraded land is being restored and deforestation pressures are relieved.

Alternate Wetting and Drying Projects
Flooded rice cultivation systems emit a significant amount of Methane (30x CO2 GWP), and nitrogen-rich fertilisers produce nitrous oxide (273x CO2 GWP)
AWD is a water-saving practice that can reduce up to 48% of greenhouse gas emissions from rice paddy fields.
The Adjusted Water Management for Rice Cultivation in Dazu District Project is located in Chongqing city, Southwestern China, and covers a total land area of 18,909 hectares of single-cropping rice. The project is expected to reduce over 410,000 tCO2e of emissions over the project lifetime of 7 years from 6 May 2018 to 5 May 2025.
