Thanks to our innovative partnership with Cool Earth we're proud to say that every business that trades their energy contract through our platform will directly protect at-risk rainforest.
Open Energy Market is working with Cool Earth, specifically with the Awajun community in Northern Peru where vast areas of the natural rainforest are under threat from loggers. Through a unique product we are mirroring every square foot of our customers’ operational space with protected rainforest.
Our customers benefit from certificates, project updates and further information on the community, wildlife and infrastructure they’re protecting.

Only 24% of the Earth's remaining rainforests are intact.
Continued deforestation threatens a quarter of the world's carbon stores, 20% of its oxygen production and six million species.
The act of removing swathes of rainforest directly contributes to climate change, constituting more than 12% of total CO2 emissions.
Cool Earth halts deforestation at the front line, and is the only charity to do so.
Local people stand to lose the most from deforestation but also have the most to gain from its protection. As such, they are the forest's best custodians. It's where there's a real chance to end a cyle of dependency that sustains continual deforestation. Partnerships such as ours in Northern Peru are community led for a very good reason.
Cool Earth works directly with local communities to invest in sustainable livelihood support, forest health and community improvement.
For over 10 years, the non-profit organisation has created partnerships that improve the quality of life for local people and protect surrounding forests as a result. Every village that partners with Cool Earth establishes a fund account and Community Association to deliver support in a way that best suits each community. Our customers directly contribute to these funds.
We're working to halt rainforest destruction in Northern Peru, home to the Awajun.
It's an area already threatened by high levels of oil and gold extraction, but deforestation poses a considerable risk. In total, 55,113 acres are now under the control of local people in Cool Earth's partnership. Without concerted effort to halt deforestation 7,186 species of sheltered animal, 15 endangered species, and the livelihood of just over 2,200 local inhabitants face an uncertain future.
Cool Earth is the non-profit organisation that works alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation and climate change. Through their innovative community-led partnership approach the charity has so far saved 901,679 acres of endangered rainforest which equates to the protection of 216,402,960 trees, 234,436,540 tonnes of stored carbon, and 68,527,604,000 litres of water every year.
