Our Story

Reflora is an innovative start-up that supports companies transition to a more sustainable business model. We help organizations achieve carbon neutrality by investing in forests, thus promoting sustainability in a concrete way.

Based in Lisbon, it has four founders: Tiago Alves, Nicholas Phillips, Marcela Miranda and Antonio Leitão. After years working in large corporations, a common goal brought them together: the desire to undertake a solution that has purpose and that promotes environmental and social impact.

This is how they came up with the ideal solution: forest carbon credits. But not just any forestry project: they would carefully select the projects with the greatest impact on the world so that they could offer not only CO2 absorption, but also ecological recovery, protection of endangered animals, direct job creation, basic and technical education, among other local community development activities.

And so Reflora is born, with a culture focused on having a collaborative and multicultural environment and with the mission of uncomplicating the concept of sustainability, allowing any individual, institution or company to act on their CO2 emissions in a reliable way, while leaving a positive impact on the world!

So what about now?

When businesses emit carbon into the atmosphere, it is imperative that they also support instruments that re-absorb carbon. Carbon Credits are a form of compensation of excess carbon that is emitted by functions of an organization.

At Reflora, we are constantly striving to add an intrinsic value to the idea of compensation.

After investigating different carbon offset projects, we chose forests. Forests support transformation that we need in the long term for the decarbonisation of our economy.

Working with forests allows Reflora, and in turn businesses, to create a deeper impact that goes beyond compliance or customer satisfaction.

We carefully curate carbon credits that offer not just the sequestration, but also mitigation of GHG impact, ecological restoration, direct employment, avoided displacement of indigenous populations, basic and technical education among other local community building activities.

We take our forests and its people very seriously.

Reflora is committed to indulge in only those carbon credits that are assured to be technology forward, transparent, safe and through duly certified high standards.

Our ultimate commitment, however, as passport holders of this planet, is to make sustainable businesses possible.
