For the second year in a row, BCP has been awarded the Best Impact Monitoring Report by the Environmental Finance Voluntary Carbon Market Rankings. An acknowledgment that transcends the report itself and demonstrates the accomplishments of our team, community partners, and Zambian Government in delivering World-Class Impacts covering over 1.2 million hectares of threatened biodiversity landscapes across Zambia.
“Ecosystem destruction continues to accelerate year on year. We can only manage what we can measure. At BCP one of the ways we are able to demonstrate substance is through our impacts. While most of us are familiar with the concept of carbon offsets, not too many people know exactly what a typical project looks like. Our 2021 impact report gives that insight into the benefit of carbon financing. As the population of our warming climate grows there is an imminent need to intensify our adaptation to climate-smart initiatives. The actors and beneficiaries are our local communities, institutions, and partners, all of whom play a critical role in the BCPs mission of making the conservation of wildlife habitats valuable to people. Our projects have been our testament to a transforming green economy through carbon finance. Direct payments and livelihood restorations have positively resulted in a steady increase in household income, job creation, and essential services. To climate-vulnerable communities further impacted by the effects of COVID-19, climate finance through the sale of offsets has been a lifeline, all while conserving some of the world’s last remaining legacy landscapes that are home to critically endangered species. Barak Obama put it so accurately ~“We are the first generation to feel the effect of climate change and the last generation who can do something about it.”
“We share our utmost gratitude to the Zambian Government, namely the Forestry Department, Department of National Parks and Wildlife, Ministry of Agriculture, and the Ministry of Green Economy and Environment for paving the way and providing an opportunity for BCP to emerge as a leading project developer in Africa. This award is a win for us all!”
Nic Mudaly, BCP CEO.
REDD+ has revolutionized the way that 18 Chiefdoms in the Luangwa to Lower Zambezi valleys look at forest conservation, by delivering life-changing benefits and transformational improvements to the quality of life for over 225,000 people across 37,000 households.

With plans to expand regionally, our life-changing impacts and emission-reduction conservation efforts are only going to grow! Under our expansion goal, by 2030, BCP is set to deliver, avoiding 30 million tons of emissions annually, benefitting 3 million people, and partnering with communities across 30 million acres of globally significant wildlife habitat.
