Blue Carbon Program
Tēnaka launched its Blue Carbon Program to enable corporations to offset their carbon footpring by restoring Ocean habitats, biggest carbon sink of our Planet.
The ocean: biggest carbon sink of our planet
83% of the global carbon cycle is circulated through the ocean. “Blue Carbon” refers to this carbon captured and sequestered by the world’s marine and coastal ecosystems (UNEP 2020).
Coastal ecosystems such as mangroves, macro-algae, tidal marshes and sea grass sequester carbon at a bigger scale than any other marine ecosystem. They are therefore our biggest ally against the climate crisis.
A key solution to contribute to net-zero
Mangrove forests sequester 5 times more CO2 than terrestrial forests on average, per unit area. Restoring the ocean has demonstrated very high impacts and multiple co-benefits for local communities & economies.
We have developed tailor-made solutions for companies willing to contribute to net-zero. By restoring a mangrove forest for your brand, you can have important and measurable impacts, both in terms of climate change mitigation and adaptation.
