Menschen helfen und dabei Kohlenstoff ausgleichen? Das geht!

Es gibt Kohlenstoffausgleiche, die den Emissionen entgegenwirken und gleichzeitig den Regenwaldarbeitern beim Zugang zur Gesundheitsversorgung helfen.

Um Menschen davon zu überzeugen, nicht zum illegalen Holzeinschlag überzugehen, müssen die wirtschaftlichen Alternativen aufgezeigt werden. Das Offset-Programm von Health in Harmony arbeitet mit ihnen zusammen, um Bäume zu pflanzen, und bietet ihnen gleichzeitig auch Dienstleistungen an.

Jeder einzelne kann etwas tun

Manchmal hat man das Gefühl, dass wir bei unseren Bemühungen, umweltfreundlich zu sein, nicht wirklich viel tun können. Wir können in wiederverwendbare Güter investieren, aber vielleicht müssen wir trotzdem mit dem Auto zur Arbeit fahren, wenn wir keinen zuverlässigen öffentlichen Nahverkehr haben. Wir können weniger Fleisch essen, aber vielleicht wollen wir nicht auf eine Flugreise verzichten, die sehr viel Kohlenstoff ausstößt. Sicher, Unternehmen sind für einen großen Teil der Treibhausgase verantwortlich, aber wir alle haben auch einen persönlichen Kohlenstoff-Fußabdruck. Der Kauf von Kompensationen − das Bezahlen, um die von Ihnen verursachten Emissionen in irgendeiner Weise zu reduzieren − ist zu einem beliebten Hilfsmittel für einige dieser Probleme geworden. Mit einem dieser Ausgleichsprogramme können Sie dies tun, indem Sie Menschen helfen, die in Regenwaldgemeinden leben.

Für die Gesundheit des Planeten …

Health in Harmony konzentriert sich auf zwei Bereiche der Gesundheit: die Gesundheit des Planeten und die Gesundheit der Menschen, die in und um den Regenwald leben. Diese Gemeinschaften, wie eine im Gunung-Palung-Nationalpark auf der Insel Borneo, lieben ihre Wälder. Doch viele von ihnen mussten auch auf illegale Abholzung zurückgreifen, um Dinge wie die Gesundheitsversorgung zu bezahlen, sagt Kinari Webb, die Gründerin von Health in Harmony. Die Non-Profit-Organisation setzt sich mit beiden Problemen auseinander, indem sie in die Wiederaufforstung investiert, die dazu beiträgt, die Wälder wiederzubeleben, Kohlenstoff aus der Atmosphäre zu binden und den Orang-Utans dringend benötigte Lebensräume zu bieten, und indem sie den Einheimischen im Regenwald medizinische Versorgung bietet.

Die Bewohner können diese Pflege mit Setzlingen bezahlen und erhalten auch eine Ausbildung in anderen geldbringenden Bemühungen wie biologischer Landwirtschaft, damit sie die Abholzung hinter sich lassen können. Außerdem erhalten sie auch Geld, um bei der Pflanzung und Pflege dieser neuen Bäume zu helfen. Sehr oft werden diese Pflanzerteams von Frauen geleitet, je nach gemeinnütziger Organisation.

… und die Gesundheit des Menschen

In den ersten 10 Jahren seines Bestehens verzeichnete Health in Harmony laut eigenen Angaben einen 90-prozentigen Rückgang der Abholzungshaushalte an ihren Standorten und trug zur Wiederaufforstung von 52.000 Hektar Regenwald bei. Auch die Kindersterblichkeit in diesen Gemeinden ging um 67% zurück, „was im Grunde sagt, dass es den Gemeinden besser geht, dass sie gesünder und glücklicher sind und dass gleichzeitig der Wald geschützt wird und tatsächlich wieder nachwächst“, sagt Webb. Jetzt hat die Non-Profit-Organisation ein neues Kohlenstoff-Ausgleichsprogramm ins Leben gerufen, das es jedem ermöglicht, für Wiederaufforstungsbemühungen zu spenden − für 4 Dollar kann man einen Setzling kaufen, und fünf Setzlinge können eine metrische Tonne Kohlenstoff über 10 Jahre hinweg aus der Atmosphäre binden. Gleichzeitig kann man in diese indigenen Gemeinden investieren.

Für das Kohlenstoffausgleichs-Tool können Sie die Anzahl der Stunden, die Sie auf einem Flug verbracht haben, oder die Liter Benzin, die Ihr Auto verbraucht hat eingeben. Daraufhin wird berechnet, wie viel Sie spenden sollten, um diese Emissionen auszugleichen.  

Langfristige Investitionen für Ihr eigenes Leben

„Es geht nicht nur darum, für Ihre Kunden gut auszusehen, obwohl das natürlich ebenso der Fall ist. Es geht um eine langfristige Investition in die Nachhaltigkeit Ihres eigenen Lebens, unserer gesamten Gesellschaft und Ihres Unternehmens, denn wenn wir auf dem Weg, den wir derzeit beschreiten, weitergehen, wird es keinem Unternehmen gut gehen“, so Webb.

Webb sagt, sie wollten einen „qualitativ hochwertigen“ Ausgleich bieten, d.h. eine Option, die eine „Monokultur“-Wiederbepflanzung vermeidet. Denn diese trägt nichts dazu beit, die biologische Vielfalt eines Waldes zu ersetzen, die tatsächlich überlebt, anstatt sofort durch künftige Abholzung abgeholzt oder durch Brände getötet zu werden. Die Nonprofit-Organisation plant mehr als 100 Baumarten, darunter einheimische Obstbäume, die auf Borneo und ihren anderen Wiederaufforstungsgebieten heimisch sind. Health in Harmony sagt, dass diese Standorte eine Überlebensrate von 80% über 10 Jahre haben. Um sicherzustellen, dass sich die Setzlinge in kohlenstoffabsondernde Bäume verwandeln, investiert die Nonprofit-Organisation in den ersten drei Jahren auch in die Pflege und Erhaltung dieser Setzlinge durch Bewässerung, Unkrautbekämpfung und Brandschutz.

„Nach drei Jahren sind sie viel stärker, sie haben ein gutes Wurzelsystem, und sie kommen von alleine zurecht“, sagt Webb. Diese Überlebensrate wird auch im Kohlenstoffausgleichsrechner berücksichtigt, indem mehr Bäume gepflanzt werden, als für diese Menge an Kohlenstoffbindung tatsächlich notwendig sind, nur für den Fall, dass sie nicht alle überleben. Gegenwärtig pflanzt Health in Harmony im indonesischen Borneo und hat gerade ein Wiederaufforstungsprogramm in Madagaskar begonnen. Die Organisation hofft, auch in diesem Jahr nach Brasilien zu expandieren, wo sie mit Hilfe von Spenden über dieses Ausgleichsinstrument in den nächsten fünf Jahren insgesamt mehr als eine Million Bäume pflanzen will.
