How does Regreener select their projects?
All of our projects have been carefully selected, in consultation with our climate advisors, based on four criteria:
- A track record in removing or reducing CO2 emissions;
- A positive impact on biodiversity;
- Social impact: creating jobs for local communities;
- Data transparency: our projects have a real, measurable and verifiable impact.
In addition, all our projects and partners are audited by external organizations for their impact and financial results, so you can be sure that your contribution is doing what we promise: combating climate change.

Who monitors whether the trees are actually planted?
This is an essential part of responsible reforestation. Our projects are regularly visited and monitored by third parties to check whether the reported number of trees is indeed growing.
Our partners provide full insight into their impact through impact reports and financial statements. WeForest, our main partner in tree planting, does this as follows:
1. WeForest maps reforestation and conservation areas. The maps are stored in a geographic information systems (GIS) database to create special restoration areas.
2. WeForest tracks progress through field monitoring. Permanent monitoring plots are established to track progress over time.
3. External auditors conduct audits and check any differences between the number of trees invoiced and the number of trees allocated to their sponsors. They also perform integrity tests on the database in which the information is recorded. The strict process they follow ensures that no polygon or tree can be funded twice.
What is the survival rate of the trees?
Based on the data from Eden Reforestation Projects (our tree planting partner), the survival rate of the trees we plant is well over 80 percent.
The great thing about mangrove trees is that between years three and five these trees begin to produce their own propagules (baby mangrove trees). This results in a proliferation of natural regeneration. Multiple studies demonstrate the initial survival rate combined with natural regeneration results in a luxuriant impact ranging between 150-500 percent.
What if there is a forest fire?
No one can guarantee 100% that there will never be a forest fire. What you can do, however, is take steps to minimize the risk of forest fires. We work only with organizations that ensure responsible forest management, minimizing the risk of forest fires.
Projects where mangroves are planted (which to date make up the majority of our planted trees) are rarely at risk due to the nature of the projects, as mangroves are planted on the shoreline or even in the water.
In the event of a natural disaster, our partner WeForest has a tree guarantee fund that allows them to replant if necessary.
