Former director of UNEP
Klaus Töpfer supports CarbonFix 

The team of CarbonFix is honored by the encouraging words of Klaus Töpfer:  "CarbonFix is an essential part of the carbon market to drive climate forestation projects worldwide.".
 
Mr. Töpfer, who headed the organization of UNEP for eight years, managed to bring the topic of environmental sustainability to the world's front page news and to make it a central aspect of international development goals. Mr. Töpfer is known internationally for his commitment to sustainable development, and for fighting for the cause of the developing world. 

 

Worldwide projects
CarbonFix expands to Western Africa

With PROJECT TOGO CarbonFix expands to Western Africa. Although, the country of Togo is one of the smaller countries in Africa, a rich variety of landscapes ranging from lagoons to mountain areas and savanna land, can be explored. Togo remains one of the poorest countries of this world; one of the most criticized problems is the issue of human trafficking. 
 
For this project, the Togolese NGO AVES has partnered with the German organization natureOffice and now teaches communities how to re-forest their country. "Our goal is one million trees in the first two years" states Andreas Weckwert from natureOffice. This would make the project the largest climate forestation project in Western Africa.
