In conclusion, the direct mitigation of 407 million tons from keeping the ITT reserves unexploited will be complemented with indirect mitigation of 791 million tons from avoided deforestation, 68 million tons from reforestation, and at least 12 million tons from building renewable energy facilities, over a 30 year period. The indirect mitigation adds up to 871 million tons of CO2, bringing the total mitigation to 1,207 million tons of CO2, about three times higher than the direct mitigation.
