AMS Fulfillment is making a Holiday donation on behalf of our valued clients to the Rainforest Trust and specifically the Rainforest Climate Action Fund supporting high-impact projects in three types of forests; Frontier, Super-Sequesters and Carbon Vaults. We are confident that our clients join with us in concern for the future of our shared world.
Rainforest Trust focuses on saving real acres of rainforest through land purchases and designations. As we all know, deforestation and the burning of forests is a significant contributor of climate change-causing greenhouse gases. Studies indicate that tropical deforestation accounts for up to 15% of net global carbon emissions each year with nearly 70,000 acres of tropical forest lost every day. When we prevent deforestation, all of that carbon remains safely stored away in the forests.
In 2020, the world lost over 30.1 million acres of tropical forest, which is nearly an acre per second. This rampant destruction of forests dumped 2.64 gigatonnes of carbon dioxide into our atmosphere. That’s more than double all annual vehicle emissions in the USA.
AMS is proud to contribute to Rainforest Trust and the Rainforest Climate Action Fund on behalf of our clients, our employees, our community and our investors. We believe that donating to this fund may be the most effective tool we have, at this time, to fight climate change and create a healthier future for our planet and all who inhabit it.
