Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 12, 2013 -- New Leaf Africa (NLA) (http://www.newleafafrica.com), a team of leaders in technology, population health and renewable energy, has been appointed by the Republic of Guinea as the sole company to develop its new carbon credit program. In this capacity, NLA will advise on a long-term preservation plan and play a key role in identifying, quantifying and qualifying projects that reduce harmful carbon emissions that are destroying Guinea’s gorgeous, untouched forested lands.
“In the region of Guinea, lush rainforests are being ripped away by slash and burn agriculture, uncontrolled grazing, burning and hunting,” stated Thomas A. Babbington, CEO of NLA. “With our unique team of experts, expansive resources and unmatched turn-key approach of taking projects from concept to implementation, we’ll help the Republic of Guinea strengthen its commitment to preserving their precious natural resources, improving the lives of their citizens and supporting global initiatives geared toward reduction of greenhouse gases.”
Right now, it is estimated that a staggering 75,000 acres of forest is lost in Guinea each year. Through this partnership, NLA, working with the Republic of Guinea and other stakeholders, will examine and execute projects that are most feasible for the ecological sustainability and economic development of Guinea. Projects in the areas of renewable energy, water purification and ecological sound manufacturing will help preserve vast portions of Guinea’s forestry land.
“We appreciate the confidence shown by the Republic of Guinea in selecting NLA to develop its carbon credit program,” commented Mr. Babbington. “Our valuable work together will help preserve Guinea’s forestry, advance the nation’s development and bring global recognition to Guinea as a world leader in conservation.”
