Carbon Offset Forestry Projects

Our Story

By 2030 our goal is to avoid 30 million tons of emissions annually, benefitting 3 million people, across 11 million hectares through our carbon offset forestry projects


BCP was founded



REDD+ Developers in Africa


People working across 17 Chiefdoms


Using nature-based solutions to emissions reduction, BCP is a mission-driven forest conservation company

Working across over 1.2 million hectares of threatened forests in 17 Chiefdoms throughout  Zambia,  BCP’s mission is to make conservation of wildlife habitat valuable to people. BCP employs over 200 people across 7 sites in Zambia. With plans to expand regionally, our life-changing impacts and emission-reduction conservation efforts are only going to grow!

BCP was born out of an intense passion for African conservation

BCP supports African conservation through a market-driven approach, boosting Africa’s green economy through a sustainable form of conservation finance. With world-class national parks, and vast but rapidly disappearing forests, Zambia was chosen as the country to lay the foundation of BCP in early 2012, and is the home of our carbon offset forestry projects.


Over the past 10 years, we have emerged as one of the leading REDD+ developers in Africa. Few companies globally have VCS verified a REDD+ project 9 consecutive times: BCP is one such company.

World-Class Credits with World-Class Impacts

The Lower Zambezi REDD+ Project was our initial pilot project. Since its inception, we have achieved unique milestones for both Zambia and Africa by becoming the first Verified Carbon Standard verified project in the country and then achieving 9 consecutive verifications.

LZRP was also the first REDD+ project in Africa to earn gold-level validation against all 3 categories for the Climate, Community, and Biodiversity Standard for our exceptional community level and environmental impacts. We are most proud of our community impacts, that wildlife numbers are increasing in the Lower Zambezi REDD+ Project, and of our hard-working and committed team.

In 2022 both LZRP and LCFP were appointed to the Natural Climate Solution Alliance. The NCS Alliance (NCSA) has been established to convey the voice of businesses, NGOs, and solution providers on the need to mobilize a high-integrity demand for high-quality NCS. The NCS Alliance focuses on identifying opportunities and barriers to investment in the NCS voluntary carbon market and also serves as a forum for knowledge sharing and technical capacity building to ensure natural climate solutions reach their full potential in abating climate change.

Ranked amongst the top 5% of B Corps globally, in 2021 and 2022 BCP was awarded the “Best for Workers’ out of over 4,000 registered B Corp companies worldwide for our commitment to our BCPeople.
