Five years since the UN Paris Agreement, sustainability has shown to be a unique matter of commitment and community. Our pledge to a joint impact on climate change aims to inspire action. Since 2000, HAF has planted over 4 million trees with Moroccan villages, facilitating projects where ecosystem restoration meets the design and implementation of social equity and sustainability. We fuel sustainable development in Morocco by offsetting global carbon emissions via the High Atlas Carbon Solution.
Whether taking a trip or driving to the supermarket, we often encounter situations in which emitting carbon is inevitable. Simply depending on the country we live in and the policy decisions made outside of our sphere of influence, we cannot always avoid leaving a carbon footprint even if we are intentional. With 20 years of development experience in Morocco, the High Atlas Foundation wants to help you offset your footprint by investing in the country's rural farming communities.
To ensure that sequestered CO2 is cooling the climate, HAF plants native fruit trees on communal land and with women's cooperatives. HAF invests in trees and the future of rural families, aiming to improve social and economic situations across generations. Carbon is sequestered and secure only when managed by societies where everyone contributes equally to the planning and implementation of sustainable projects. By facilitating this process, we ensure an enduring future that is inclusive.
The High Atlas Carbon Solution will ensure that carbon sequestered today cools the climate for years to come. While the ability of Moroccan drylands to store extraordinary amounts of CO2 has been verified by institutions such as the International Union for Conservation of Nature and the UN, HAF holds social equity at the core of its tree planting. When you offset carbon emissions by donating to this project, you are making a statement: that climate action is key to a more equitable future.
