Concept

Is sustainability firmly anchored in your business, are you on the way to achieving it, or do you want to make a contribution to climate and species protection out of conviction? You have come to the right place, because greenwashing is not our thing either.

Planting trees and protecting forests as a company is an excellent way to offset CO2 and promote biodiversity. This is exactly what we have been doing for several years now, out of passion and with a lot of personal commitment. You can find out more about our approach under «Reforest & Protect».

Ensure a lot of positive impact together with us as a partner! With our concept for businesses, we not only implement particularly important nature conservation projects, but also support you with exciting and emotional information for your own communication.

Our concept briefly explained

What?

Natural reforestation: Together with you as Reforestation Partner, we ensure that new, species-rich forest is created through the professional planting of native trees.

Conservation of existing forests: Together with you as Forest Conservation Partner, we preserve the remaining forests from deforestation.

Communication support: A versatile support that we offer you so that you can communicate your commitment and the impact of the funded projects to your stakeholders in a transparent and exciting way.

Why?

Because as a society, we need to address two of the most pressing issues facing our planet much more intensively: Biodiversity loss and climate change.

Where?

In Ecuador, we are committed to protect the particularly threatened tropical wet forest west of the Andes. These species-rich forests exist in many areas nowadays only as small forest fragments, which we would like to reunite into larger forest areas.

Why Arbofino?

      • Scientific projects in cooperation with universities
      • Fair jobs for the local population
      • Raising awareness of environmental issues among local community
      • Living a culture of values towards all stakeholders

Reforestation Partner

As a Reforestation Partner, you want to make a particularly strong impact by funding natural reforestation, because you are just as convinced as we are that the earth urgently needs more forests.

Reforesting new forests is time-consuming and cost intensive. However, professional planting and care of the young trees is a prerequisite for creating a valuable forest again in the shortest possible time. Thus, for the time being, our reforestation options over three years are not about maximum CO2 compensation, but about enabling the most impactful nature conservation project possible in the long term.

For us, reforestation means more than simply «planting trees»! Every reforestation project includes:

5

Land purchase through our Bosquefino Foundation

5

Seedling

5

Planting

5

Maintenance & Care

5

Surveillance of nature reserve

5

Contribution to scientific projects

5

Contribution to social projects

5

CO2 compensation

Forest Conservation Partner

As a Forest Conservation Partner, it is your particular concern to protect existing forests from deforestation. In this way, you can ensure that the forests that are so important for biodiversity are preserved.

Existing forests vary greatly in age and condition. Even though most of the forest fragments in our project area are marked by past human influences, they all have in common that they are extremely important refuges for animals. Forest conservation packages over three years focus besides the protection of biodiversity also on maximum CO2 compensation.

For us, Forest Conservation means more than simply «saving forests»! Each Forest Conservation package includes:

5

Land purchase through our Bosquefino Foundation

5

Surveillance of nature reserve

5

Contribution to scientific projects

5

Contribution to social projects

5

CO2 compensation

Communication Support

Reporting about good deeds serves the project as well as your business. We support you in giving your stakeholders an authentic impression of your commitment to climate and species protection. We want to arouse emotions and at the same time show the measurable impact of the projects!

For both alternatives, Reforestation and Forest Conservation, we support your communication with additional information and materials. This includes also our partner logo to show your commitment. Even a personal presentation on site is possible.

Under the different options you can see which communication support is included.

We are also open for individual solutions. Additional communication support, further lectures or casual presentation aperitifs, personalized videos directly from the project site up to business or customer trips to Ecuador, everything is possible. We would be happy to discuss this together.

Reforestation Packages

Our reforestation packages over a three-year term ensure maximum impact! Unfortunately, the world is still deforesting much faster than it is reforesting, but for local biodiversity and the global climate, every new forest that is created is especially valuable

As a company, you can play a pioneering role with our reforestation packages!

    • Decide how many trees you want to reforest. 1’200 trees correspond to the area of one hectare (10’000 m2).
    • The bigger the package, the more communication support it includes!

You can select the desired package in the online calculator. You will see besides the number of trees instantly the area it includes, how much CO2 your business can offset over 3 years, the communication support we offer and the corresponding price.

If you have a special request or are interested in a large-scale project and a long-term partnership, we look forward to hearing from you. We are also happy to create a product page for you in our forest store with your business branding. This way you can motivate your customers to reforest together with you!

Forest conservation packages

Our Forest Conservation packages over a three-year term are enormously valuable because they save the few remaining forests from deforestation in the long term! Forests not only store large amounts of CO2, but are also vital refuges for numerous animal species.

Although only a fraction of the original forest areas still exists, further areas are cleared year after year. This also means that important protection for numerous water sources is being lost.

As a company, you can set an example in favor of our planet’s forests with our Forest Conservation packages!

    • Decide how much area you would like to protect. The smallest package starts at 2,500 m2 (0,25 ha).
    • The larger the package, the more communication support it includes!

You can select the desired package in the online calculator. After selecting the desired area, you will immediately see how much CO2 your business can offset over 3 years, the communication support we offer and the corresponding price.

If you have a special request or are interested in a large project and a long-term partnership, we look forward to hearing from you.
