About Conservation International

Through its Center for Environmental Leadership in Business (CELB), CI is at the forefront working on climate change issues. CI's Conservation Carbon projects, which mitigate climate change through the restoration and protecting of degraded landscapes, deliver multiple benefits by protecting endangered species from extinction, conserving habitats that deliver critical ecosystem services, and supporting local communities through project employment and carbon service revenue. CI also coordinated the creation of the Climate, Community and Biodiversity (CCB) Standards, an initiative of several leading companies and non-governmental organizations to promote land-based projects that offset carbon emissions while protecting biodiversity and supporting communities.
