With a rich history spanning decades, Arauco is at the forefront of sustainable forestry practices. Headquartered in Chile, Arauco boasts a global presence, with operations in South America, North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. The company is committed to developing sustainable solutions based on renewable forest resources, leveraging its extensive expertise and innovative technologies to drive positive environmental impact.

Arauco has a rich history of commitment to sustainability, focusing on developing sustainable solutions based on renewable forest resources. With a worldwide presence and customer base, Arauco has established itself as a significant player in the industry, continuously striving to improve the quality of life for millions around the world.

One of Arauco's achievements is its carbon credit generation, with several power plants registered as GHG emission reduction projects under the Clean Development Mechanism of the Kyoto Protocol. Annually offsetting about 650,000 tons of CO2, Arauco is dedicated to environmental conservation, and reducing its carbon footprint.

Partnership Benefits: Arauco

The collaboration presents an exciting opportunity for Arauco to leverage its sustainability initiatives and expand its impact. By utilizing Fellow Future's platform and network, Arauco aims to raise awareness of its projects and products while creating new business opportunities and engaging in collaborations within the sustainability realm.

One particular focus of the partnership is to promote Arauco's GHG emission reduction projects. Through Fellow Future's platform, Arauco plans to sell carbon offset certificates (VCUs) to businesses as well as individuals, contributing to environmental conservation and sustainability efforts.

As part of the collaboration, a six-month pilot project is proposed to test the efficacy and feasibility of the partnership. During this period, both parties will work closely to implement and evaluate specific initiatives aimed at achieving mutual goals, providing valuable insights for future endeavors. Arauco has allocated 6,000 Verified Carbon Units (VCUs) for the pilot project, with the flexibility to adjust based on demand. These VCUs will be offered under market conditions, with verification and auditing costs included, ensuring transparency and accountability in the process.
