The Straits Times: “‘Black gold’ in the Heart of Borneo”

An article titled “‘Black Gold’ in the Heart of Borneo” looks at the environmental benefits of the Katingan Peatland Restoration and Conservation Project in Indonesia. The Katingan Project produces millions of VCS-certified carbon credits annually.

“The purchase of carbon credits allows the peat forests to continue what they do best – store carbon, produce oxygen, provide habitat for threatened and endemic species, and support the sustainable development of local community initiatives.”
