km2 wetlands worldwide
(Ramsar, 2021)

The world's mangroves store carbon equivalent to over 21 gigatons of CO2, prevent more than $65 billion in property damages, and reduce flood risk to some 15 million people yearly.

What we do

Blue & teal carbon

Blue carbon is the carbon stored in coastal and marine ecosystems. Coastal wetlands, including seagrass meadows, mangroves and tidal marshes, are major blue carbon ecosystems and are often termed “blue forests”.

Teal carbon is the carbon stored in inland freshwater (non- tidal) wetlands. Equivalent to coastal wetlands, they have the capacity to regulate greenhouse gases. However, their degradation due to land-use change, pollution, water extraction, and landscape modification can release high levels of carbon dioxide and methane back into the atmosphere.
Carbon Capture

Capture & storage of carbon

The process of removing carbon from the atmosphere and depositing it in a reservoir. The conservation, management, and restoration of ecosystems such as forests, peatlands, wetlands, and grasslands have the potential of capturing and storing large amounts of carbon dioxide each year. This process is largely artificial or 'direct', representing an effective way of neutralizing emissions put into human practices, such as manufacturing or construction.


Captures 4x more carbon than rainforests

Mangroves provide globally important ecosystem services and carbon sequestration and are thus an important habitat to conserve and repair when possible. Mangroves are naturally disturbed by floods, tsunamis, coastal storms like cyclones and hurricanes, lightning, disease and pests, and changes in water quality or temperature. Mangrove forests are responsible for approximately 10% of global carbon burial.


35x faster than the rainforest carbon sequestration

These seagrass meadows are highly productive habitats that provide many ecosystem services, including sediment stabilization, habitat and biodiversity, better water quality, and carbon and nutrient sequestration. Although seagrass makes up only 0.1% of the area of the ocean floor, it accounts for approximately 10–18% of the total oceanic carbon burial.


Captures carbon & traps sediment for runoff

Marshes have high productivity, with a large portion of primary production in belowground biomass. Marshes provide valuable habitat for plants, birds, and juvenile fish, protect coastal habitat from storm surge and flooding, and can reduce nutrient loading to coastal waters. Salt marshes cover approximately 22,000 to 400,000 km2 globally, with an estimated carbon burial rate of 210 g C m−2 yr−1.

Mangroves can capture four times more carbon than rainforests can. With the rising greenhouse gases including CO2, mangroves have become an essential tool in fighting climate change.
Pablo's Story

Our projects

We protect and conserve nature, while providing co-benefits so wetland landowners can thrive.

We facilitate the development, verification, and integration of blue carbon sequestration projects into carbon offset markets by providing the technological, legal, and financial framework for communities and land owners to benefit from the stewardship of our environment.

In Mexico

Land ownership and the exploitation of native farmworkers have historically been at the center of every conflict in Mexico.

Zere's success depends on developing a reliable systematic process to bring carbon credits to market that is trustworthy, dependable, and built to service the interest of our landowning partners.
