Plant trees to combat the climate crisis
IGEL’s vision is to transform the way the world works, creating better outcomes for people, organizations and our planet.
IGEL partners with Plant-for-the-Planet to take action for a more sustainable future. Together we spotlight global forest restoration projects to combat the climate crisis. We offer support for planting and growing trees, conserving, and restoring forest carbon sinks worldwide.
IGEL is committed to planting and protecting trees
Help us get there, plant trees with IGEL and reduce C02
Built in partnership with Plant-for-the-Planet, the tree counter tracks our progress towards our forest restoration goal and enables donations to the restoration project in the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico with an easy to use and transparent platform.

Why the world needs a trillion more trees
Restoring lost trees is essential to preventing the climate crisis. Of the original 6 trillion trees that once covered the earth’s landmass, only 3 trillion remain. Trees generate a sustainable, low-carbon future for us all by:
- reducing emissions by capturing CO2 from the atmosphere
- storing the carbon in their structure and in the soil
- protecting and improving carbon sinks like forests
Trees offer mankind valuable time to reduce CO2 emissions. Researchers at ETH Zurich assume that 1 trillion additional trees can shift the climate system tipping points by ten to 15 years.
