About the organization

  

At Acacia Eco, we dream of climate positive cities that cancel out more carbon than they emit. Our commitment to nature is real. We don’t have all the solutions, but our immediate goal is clear - plant enough trees to make an impact! There are three sub goals that are an underlying theme in our approach and project design:

  • Bringing nature back to cities 

  • Connecting people with nature

  • Reviving degraded soils  

We work with private and public stakeholders to execute green infrastructure projects of varied scales in Indian cities. We use different plantation techniques including individual tree plantations, grasslands, shrubs and fast growing dense forests using the Miyawaki method. We execute projects and maintain/ monitor to ensure growth results.  

We target plantation projects in different zones across cities, with specific objectives. 

  • Core zone: Urban greening projects with direct community engagement and impact on well being

  • Inner circle: Urban greening activities to utilize available spaces and targeted locations with higher emissions

  • Outer circle: Greening activities on the outskirts/outside city limits 

Climate positive cities are a big task and we believe that it is essential for multiple different stakeholders to come together in order to achieve this. We work with private stakeholders, local government bodies, institutions, community organisations, non profits, urban planners and policy makers. We believe our approach is holistic and would be successful in driving a lasting impact at a city level. 

We have planted more than 100 forests, restoring more than 100 acres of barren land with 1 million+ trees of 75+ native tree species planted.

Special features of the organization

Acacia Eco’s green infrastructure approach is scientific and research oriented, with focus on achieving project goals while maximizing impact across various environmental and social parameters. 

Acacia Eco had adopted the Miyawaki afforestation method  as one of the plantation techniques which results in faster growth, more biodiverse and dense forests and significantly higher carbon sequestration. The Miyawaki method replicates natural forests, but speeds up the process rapidly – resulting in mature forests in 10-20 years as compared to the 100-200 years it could take a forest to regenerate on its own. The planting density in these forests is very high – 3 to 5 trees per sq. m. Availability of suitable land is a major challenge in large scale reforestation projects. Due to high plantation density of the Miyawaki method (3-5 trees per sq m) and usage of >40 native tree species in each forest, there is higher carbon sequestration from available land parcels.

Acacia Eco’s approach is research oriented and we have been successful in execution of forest projects in difficult site conditions including, 

  •  Miyawaki plantation in high soil and water conditions like Dholera and Patdi

  •  Miyawaki plantation at waste dumping site after waste removal and soil treatment

  • Miyawaki plantation at site with fly ash topsoil layer in Jamshedpur

  • Green and blue infrastructure project at depleted sites including a mining site

 

Why should a corporate partner with organization?

Acacia Eco has planted more than 100 forests, restoring more than 100 acres of barren land with 1 million+ trees of 75+ native tree species planted. 

We dream of climate positive cities that cancel out more carbon than they emit. Our commitment to nature is real. We don’t have all the solutions, but our immediate goal is clear - plant enough trees to make an impact! Our subgoals that are an underlying theme in our approach are - Bringing nature back to cities, connecting people with nature, reviving degraded soils. We use plantation techniques including individual trees, grasslands, shrubs and high density multi species forests inspired by the Miyawaki method. The method replicates natural forests, but speeds up the process – resulting in faster growing, biodiverse and higher carbon storing and self-sustainable forests.

Climate change is an inevitable and urgent global challenge. The impact of human-caused global warming has been visible for years through unprecedented heat waves, floods, droughts and forest fires. Although India has comparatively low per capita emissions per year, it is the world's third highest contributor of global CO2 emissions. Carbon removal projects including nature based solutions are a critical tool to address the climate crisis. Any corporate who is looking to contribute in the field of environment and sustainability should partner with us.
