Description

What is this Sylvera you speak of? πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘¨

We also provide a holistic picture of offset projects, providing people with the information they need to make informed decisions.

By providing transparency, Sylvera intends to underpin functioning voluntary carbon markets. This will allow the market to scale to keep the planet under 2C of warming, and unlock huge co-benefits for nature and society.
