Stand For Trees protects the world’s most spectacular forest landscapes, and the communities and wildlife that call them home. By protecting the lowland peat swamp forests of Borneo, Indonesia, the Rimba Raya project ensures that forests will be around for one of the last remaining populations of orangutans on the planet for years to come. It also helps provide local communities with water filters, solar power, scholarships, health services, and more.

Stand For Trees

While Stand For Trees combats tropical deforestation around the world, contributions by way of Atmos are being used specifically to support the Rimba Raya Orangutan Reserve in Indonesia, where we'll protect nearly 47,000 hectares through all 17 of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals. Keeping Rimba Raya standing will prevent the emissions of 100 million tonnes of CO2 over 30 years, protect over 120 endangered species and support community development of indigenous people. Protecting this forest is our obligation. - Pete
