Suriname is a Carbon Negative Country

More than 90 per cent of Suriname’s territory is covered with forests. This annually absorbes 8.8 million tons of carbon, while providing annual emissions of 7 million tons of carbon

This qualifies Suriname as a carbon negative economy or country.

Paradoxically, Suriname has become a vulnerable country as a result of climate change. Rising sea levels may damage or destroy its coastal ecosystems, including arable land, erode gross domestic product (GDP), and damage or destroy the homes of more than 80 per cent of the population.

Changes in rainfall patterns and rising temperatures may lead to an increase in health risks, a decrease in hydropower production, and a reduction in access to river pathways.

Therefor Suriname has set path a to an all green economy. Every investor, enterpreneur or student that wants to start, invest or study in sustainable and fair companies, is welcome.

One of the goals of Suriname is to become one of the first countries with an all green car capital, banning all fossil fuel car engines in the capital.
