The Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve has been validated by Indonesia’s carbon registry, the SNR.
The Rimba Raya project is located in the Indonesian province of Central Kalimantan on the island of Borneo.
The area was going to be converted into palm oil plantations before being protected and is home to a rich diversity of plants, animals, and endangered species.
Rimba Raya’s Validation Details
Rimba Raya was the first to get validated under the Sustainable Development Verified Impact Standard (SD VISta) for hitting all of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
InfiniteEARTH revenue stream from carbon credit sales supports local community development, provincial government infrastructure, and project area protection.

These credits may be released when the applicable sub-sector’s NDC targets are met.
The SRN carbon credit system follows internationally accepted standards (UNFCC guidelines) and is managed by government and non-government stakeholders and auditors.
