CCBA Certification Furthers EcoPlanet Bamboo’s Focus on its Triple Bottom Line

30th November 2012

Following the successful completion of FSC and VCS certification, EcoPlanet Bamboo’s Central American plantations have received Climate, Community, and Biodiversity Alliance (CCBA) gold level certification.

Climate, Community, and Biodiversity (CCB) gold level standards of the CCBA further solidify EcoPlanet Bamboo’s commitment to drive the bamboo industry with sustainable benchmarks while creating triple bottom line returns. The gold level is the highest recognition given by the CCBA to project’s that bring exceptional biodiversity benefits.

Our CCBA gold level certification verifies our plantations have been developed and designed under best practices to deliver long-term social and environmental benefits that address climate change, support local communities and conserve biodiversity.

EcoPlanet Bamboo monitors and quantifies our social and environmental impacts against baseline socio-economic and biodiversity studies, ensuring responsible land-based carbon projects.

CCBA gold level certification together with our VCS certification to sequester 816,000 tons of CO2 will provide the carbon markets with premium credits that have social and environmental benefits embedded in their values.
