Project Main Details

Code REDD  
Code REDD is a campaign to save the world's threatened forests. A component of this campaign is the attached script for an animatic to explain the complex carbon credit market that funds REDD projects.

That said, the VO for this animatic should be confident in imparting the details - always with a sense of optimism but not over the top. The animatic is for a corporate audience.

Script Details

***custom demo required*** 
Code REDD is an emergency action campaign to save the world’s threatened forests by connecting corporations looking to offset their carbon footprint with verified emission reductions from REDD + projects that protect forest ecosystems that would otherwise have been destroyed.

Why the emergency? The planet’s tropical forests store nearly 250 billion tonnes of carbon in their vegetation and root structures. When a forest is cleared or degraded, this carbon is released as carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.

An area equivalent to New York City is lost every other day to deforestation, releasing 7 billion tonnes of CO2 into the atmosphere each year, accounting for over 17% of greenhouse gas emissions globally. This is more than the global transportation sector and second only to the global energy sector which is about the same as the total annual emissions from the United States.

REDD+ is a pioneering and proven United Nations initiative created to Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and forest Degradation.

By creating financial value for the carbon stored in forests through of the sale of verified emissions reductions, REDD + projects make threatened forests more valuable alive than dead while also having significant social, economic and environmental benefits in the communities where the projects are developed.

What are carbon offsets? Carbon offsets or voluntary emission reductions (VERs) represent one tonne of forest emissions that are avoided through high quality REDD+ forest protection projects that have proven they can protect threatened forests while providing unprecedented sustainable development opportunities to local forest communities.

Code REDD provides a solution that directly connects corporate carbon footprint reduction to long-term forest protection by enabling forward thinking companies, like Allianz, PPR (Puma) and BNP Paribas, to invest in forest protection as an offset for their unavoidable carbon emissions.

Why should companies get involved with Code REDD? Corporate leaders are faced with a new challenge: to deliver goods and services to customers in a competitive marketplace while being responsible about their carbon footprint. Investment in REDD + projects provides an innovative solution to both of these challenges.

Code REDD presents one of the greatest opportunities in this century to reverse the destruction of the world’s remaining tropical forests by matching corporations looking to offset their footprint and sellers of high-quality, verified emission reductions.

What’s needed now is early action and investment by corporate leaders.

When corporations pledge to purchase REDD + emission reductions to offset their carbon footprint, they create demand and stimulate investment in new REDD+ projects while turning an emissions reduction liability into an unquestionably positive action.

We can all do our part by supporting Code REDD. Check our website to learn how you can become a Code REDD Corporate Champion.
