Turning Transactions into Actions
Thunes commits to playing a role in the regenerative efforts of the planet. In partnership with Handprint, Thunes will engage in continued reforestation efforts. The first trees planted by Thunes are mangrove trees in Sumatra, Indonesia.
Yakopi is a non-profit organisation based in North Sumatra and Aceh, Indonesia, – a community that have worked with stakeholders at all levels on programs to conserve and restore mangrove forests. Not only do our reforestation programs help to reduce GHG emissions, but it also increases biodiversity in the mangrove ecosystem by improving habitat, allowing it to be a breeding ground for fishes, shrimps and crabs, including supporting an ecologically sound food chain, and the economy for traditional fishermen.
On top of that, our projects also involve the community by providing jobs and raising public awareness of the benefit of reforestation conservation. Training is also conducted for community groups providing them with an understanding of how to implement correct restoration processes. Success rates of restoration can be maximally achieved if proper maintenance from beginning to end is put in place.
We’re very proud to be supporting Yakopi through Handprint to help plant mangrove trees and make our planet a better place.

Why plant mangrove trees?
Healthy mangroves can provide sustainable livelihoods for coastal communities and reduce their vulnerability to natural events such as hurricanes and storm surges. Mangroves also provide a number of other benefits to the world at large – they are arguably the most efficient carbon sequestration technology than any other forest type! The trees form deep roots underground that solidify the soil and end up storing close to 75% of the carbon there.
