Mitigating Climate Change Through Mangrove Restoration

Mangrove restoration is a sustainable and cost-effective strategy to support coastal ecosystems while mitigating climate change.

“Mangroves are some of the most carbon-rich ecosystems on the planet, storing on average 1,000 tonnes of carbon per hectare in their biomass and underlying soils.”
UN Environment Programme

Why Mangroves?

Mangroves are one of the most unique trees on the planet, achieving incredible social and environmental impact. Beyond the high levels of carbon sequestered, mangroves also create barriers that protect coastal villages against natural disasters like storms and tsunamis.

Their ecosystems directly support the well-being of many other organisms and provide habitats and nurseries for over 1,500 species, including humans, plants, and animals like fish and mollusks.

PUR engages coastal communities to plant mangroves and execute community awareness activities to help them understand the value mangroves bring to their ecosystems and livelihoods. Our programs help generate income through sustainable management—ensuring that mangroves are seen as a natural resource that needs protection for the long-term future.

We Can Help Your Company Achieve Ambitious Climate Strategies

Are you a company with ambitious climate targets? The Science Based Target Initiative (SBTi) has released a call to action for investment in Beyond Value Chain Mitigation (BVCM). By investing in BVCM projects, and specifically in Blue Carbon, companies that are targeting Net Zero can accelerate global transformation while supporting climate and nature resilience–contributing to their social license to operate in the region and differentiating their brand.

We’ve helped companies reduce their carbon emissions while simultaneously regenerating and preserving ecosystems and supporting local farming communities. PUR can help your company achieve its carbon targets. Connect with us and subscribe below.

Prioritizing Community Benefits

Interest in blue carbon as a nature-based climate solution is growing worldwide; however, coastal ecosystems are facing more significant threats than ever before. For instance, in Indonesia—home to around 20% of the world’s mangroves—coastal ecosystems are being destroyed due to a range of economic activities including aquaculture (shrimp and fish farming) and coastal development.

This is why community involvement is so important in blue carbon initiatives. By aligning blue carbon projects with regional priorities, we can achieve prosperous outcomes for local communities through benefit-sharing and economic programs.

What We Do

Founded in 2008, PUR develops projects within our clients’ value chains to regenerate landscapes and protect vital ecosystems. By implementing nature-based solutions (NBS), we help companies reduce their environmental footprint while increasing the resilience of supply chains to climate change.


PUR creates long-term impact by restoring key ecosystem services, while scaling up sustainable practices to support future generations of farmers.

Regenerative agriculture gives producers the tools to take action and be part of a larger solution to the climate crisis — enhancing soil health, increasing biodiversity, and building resilience to major ecological issues like flooding and drought.

About Us

Employing over 200 team members, we work closely with our clients to design and implement nature-based solutions — which are uniquely curated to fit the needs of local partners and sourcing communities.
