Redd Forests to Forests Alive
January 2013

Redd Forests has announced their name change to "Forests Alive".

In August 2012, Redd Forests welcomed new Managing Director, Virginia Young. This was followed by a careful re-think into the company’s purpose and goals.

"In recognition of our role in fostering domestic as well as international forest protection projects that deliver strong carbon, biodiversity and community benefits, we decided a name was needed which better reflected our purpose," Forests Alive Technical Expert Lawrence Rimmer said.

"The change in name to 'Forests Alive' demonstrates that we work beyond the REDD-IFM schemes and place greater emphasis on our role in protecting native forests, and maintaining the natural and robust carbon stock, and the biodiversity that they contain. We have and will continue to focus on delivering projects that protect Australia's native forests and wildlife.

"We are also pleased to announce that we are expanding our international presence with our project in the Brazilian state of Amazonas attracting the partnership of UNCTAD (the United Nations Conference for Trade and Development) and CAF (the Latin-American Development Bank)," Mr Rimmer said.
