Our project also holds FSC and SDVISta certifications, meaning we can offer corporations seeking to offset their emissions and achieve their ESG goals, high-quality carbon credits that deliver real impact.
We are a dedicated group of local Romanian investors, united by our profound respect for the environment and our shared commitment to sustainable investment. Our focus lies in natural capital, harnessing the abundant resources provided by nature itself, with a special emphasis on our nation’s vast and beautiful forests.
Understanding the immense value of these woodlands not only as a source of timber but also as a priceless reservoir of biodiversity and a crucial carbon sink, we have developed a pioneering forest carbon project. This initiative acknowledges that forests are an irreplaceable asset, playing a vital role in the global fight against climate change.
As local investors, we are intimately aware of the regional environmental and socio-economic conditions, leveraging this knowledge to maximize the potential of our investments. We also believe in forging strong relationships with local communities, supporting them to maintain their traditional ways of life, all while enabling them to benefit from the new opportunities emerging from the growing carbon market.
These areas, blessed with rich biodiversity and stunning natural beauty, offer the perfect setting for our sustainable investment endeavor.
As part of our long-term strategy, we plan to expand our forest carbon project to other properties we own in different counties across Romania. Our vast land holdings give us the unique opportunity to implement sustainable forest management practices on a large scale, amplifying the beneficial impacts of our project.
We believe that the successful execution of this expansion will not only increase the size of our carbon sink but also foster biodiversity, bolster local economies, and encourage rural development. By widening our project’s scope, we will also help to disseminate sustainable practices and awareness of natural capital across the entire country.
The Silvador Initiative will reduce net GHG emissions through the elimination of harvesting in the project area, thereby converting logged forests to protected forests.
The project area is a forest ecosystem with an abundance of fauna and plants that can help a carbon-based initiative by increasing the overall carbon sequestration potential of the forest. Trees and plants absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere during photosynthesis, converting it into organic carbon compounds that are stored in the plant’s tissues. This process is a natural way of reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and is known as carbon sequestration.
By stopping timber harvest within the project area, an estimated 340,210 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO2e) will be reduced from the atmosphere during the life of the project.

and project impact
A diverse range of plant and animal species in a forest ecosystem can promote healthy soil, which in turn increases the ability of the soil to sequester carbon. Healthy soils are able to store more carbon because of their high organic matter content, which comes from decomposing plant and animal material.
Furthermore, the presence of certain plant species can also enhance carbon sequestration. For example, some tree species have a higher carbon sequestration potential than others due to their growth rate and ability to store carbon in their tissues for long periods.
By implementing sustainable forest management practices, we ensure that the forest is managed in a way that protects and enhances biodiversity.
Biodiversity is an essential component of healthy and thriving forests, and it’s an important focus of the Silvador Climate Action Initiative. The forestland included in the project is home to a diverse array of plant and animal species, ranging from the towering trees that provide a canopy for the forest floor to the tiny insects that live in the soil.
Some of the species that can be found in our forest include bears, wolves, lynx, and deer, as well as smaller mammals like foxes, badgers, and squirrels. There are also numerous bird species, including owls, and hawks.
The forest is home to a variety of tree species, including oak, beech, and hornbeam, as well as many shrubs, wildflowers, and other plants. The diversity of plant life in the forest provides habitat and food for many of the animals that live there.
