Mata no Peito Forestry Fund Update

Nike, together with Winrock, seeks to bring together a committed and visionary team of partners in the Mata no Peito Initiative to raise funding and awareness for the strength of join actions to protect and replant forests in Brazil.

To date, individual and corporate Mata no Peito partners have collectively raised $40,000 and removed 19.5 million pounds of CO2 from the atmosphere via retirement of carbon credits to offset their carbon footprints – equivalent to taking 1,825 cars off the road for a year. All donations will be pooled to provide funding to projects that protect and replant forests in Brazil and demonstrate community engagement and enhanced livelihoods.

We are grateful for the generous support to date from 155 individual donations via Global Giving as well as from committed corporate and nonprofit partners including the U.S. Tennis Congress, (USTC), Sustain:Green, the 2013 Environmental and Clean Energy Presidential Inaugural Ball, software development company iObit, Nissan, London Carbon Markets and Hub Culture.

We look forward to announcing the first Mata no Peito funded project in the coming months.
