Rainforest protection through tropical timber trade
The challenge: stop the crowding out
The spread of industrial agriculture is the most important reason for the destruction of the rainforest. Forest areas are not destroyed because of the wood. It's about the area and profitable cultivation. Where there was forest a few years ago, there are now soya and corn plantations for animal feed or pasture for cattle breeding.
One solution: make the forest valuable
We believe that only responsible use can stop the displacement of the rainforest by industrial agriculture. The forest must once again become valuable and worthy of protection for the local people and be able to contribute to their livelihood. Controlled forest management can thus contribute to the protection of the rainforest. The video explains the principle of our work.
Environmental protection begins with the selection of suppliers. That's why we don't just rely on certificates, we visit the forest and factory on site.
fair to people
Environmental protection only works with the local people. That is why the workers must be paid fairly and the locals must benefit from our projects.
What we do has one goal: we want to give the forest more than we take. This is achieved through sustainable forest management and ecological reforestation.
