TIST Values Transparency
Honesty is at the heart of what makes TIST Farmers successful.
What the farmers are doing right now:
Highly-effective climate change restoration
Restoring existing degraded land is a highly effective climate change opportunity.
Planting 22+ million trees, alive and counting
Tree planting is one of the simplest and most cost effective means of mitigating climate change, by absorbing CO2 from the atmosphere.
Sequestering carbon and improving lives
TIST's verified results show that the current farmers have received over $140 million in benefits that are additional to the carbon income. That is over $8 of benefits so far for each tree planted and kept alive.
The International Small Group & Tree Planting Program
Creating effective afforestation and improving farmers' income in response to global climate change!
What makes TIST unique?
