Stories Of Hope
Behind every carbon offset you purchase, there is a human story. For every seagrass seedling and mangrove tree that grows out of the ground, there is a pair of hands digging the dirt and gently planting the roots in the sand.
This space is dedicated for you to meet these heroes, their stories of hope and find more about how your action is helping to support their local communities in Indonesia.
Meet Pak Momo
This is Mustafa. Mostly called by his childhood nickname - Pak Momo. He is currently working as an honorary employee at a governmental institution in Thousand Islands and was also entrusted by the people of Harapan Island to be the leader of the village conservation efforts.
Pak Momo believes that the community-based conservation activities conducted by CarbonEthics in Harapan Island have been very helpful for his organization as it has given the farmers a source of income.
Watch the video below to learn how your contribution to CarbonEthics is supporting communities like Pak Momo's during COVID-19.

"Social, Economic And
Social Return of Investment
Social return on investment, or SROI, is a method for measuring values that are not traditionally reflected in financial statements. This includes social, economic, and environmental factors. This method helps identify how effectively a company uses its capital and other resources to create value for the community.
According to the One Young World 2019 Impact Report, Our SROI ratio is 1 : 3. Meaning that for each $1 dollar invested in CarbonEthics, $3 are generated in social, economic and environmental value.
Building A Future Together
At CarbonEthics we also believe in equipping these communities with knowledge that supports their job security.
Besides providing them with work in plantation and monitoring, our holistic community-based blue carbon conservation work includes educating local farmers on environmental impacts and benefits of their activities, and methodological and operational training. The coastal communities also learn that by conserving their local ecosystems, they can also profit from eco-tourism activities.
Pak Ian, one of our coral farmer partners in Pramuka Island, shares that through CarbonEthics adoption programs, they are able to keep farming even during challenging times like the COVID-19 pandemic. The new knowledge acquired has also made his community more enthusiastic about conserving the blue carbon ecosystem in their region.
