“Eneco is proud to be part of this important Dutch business initiative to protect forests with high levels of biodiversity, whilst simultaneously supporting communities which depend on forests for their livelihood.

REDD+ Business Initiative Partners
Does your company value sustainability and do you think preserving biodiversity and reducing CO2 emissions is important? If so, REDD+ projects can help your business. In the REDD+ Business Initiative companies join forces to voluntarily contribute to a sustainable planet. Together we invest in conserving tropical rainforests and motivate others to do the same.
Companies that become a partner of the REDD+ Business Initiative form a platform, where knowledge and experience gained with the REDD+ activities are shared. Together we keep the project’s focus and make sure that our message is heard in the international debate on climate change.
How can my company join the REDD+ Business Initiative?
We hope your company is just as motivated as we are to fight tropical deforestation and forest degradation with the REDD+ Business Initiative. Together we determine how your company can best contribute to our mission. Maybe you would like to join the pilot project in Peru, but you might want to examine different options. Everything is possible, so please contact Erik van Zadelhoff, (email: firstname.lastname@example.org), Project leader of the REDD+ Business Initiative.
“Tropical deforestation must stop and we can play our part. We want to demonstrate that with cooperation and a relatively small contribution we can address climate change together and at the same time help protect some of the world’s most diverse and threatened nature”

“FMO is proud to be partner in this exciting initiative to prevent deforestation. This partnership offers an example of how the private sector can contribute to better management of our ecosystems which is crucial to attain our vision: A world in 2050 in which nine billion people live well and within the limits of the planet’s resources”
Nanno Kleiterpformer CEO - FMO
“REDD + is incredibly important, right now. While we are working hard on the decarbonisation of our economy, and the development of a sustainable energy supply, the loss of tropical forests is going on very fast, with destructive effects including the loss of the ‘carbon sink’, loss of local sustainable economy, and loss of nature and biodiversity. And now the good news: it is a very attractive way for companies to create value! So join the REDD+ Business Initiative!”

“Launching sustainable business models to battle deforestation and conserve biodiversity in the cocoa chain is one of Cocoanect’s focal points. That is why we are thrilled to see CO2 compensation, next to our organic cocoa sourcing, as a sustainable revenue model for local communities in the Peruvian Amazon. We are proud to be a part of this powerful initiative and we hope to partner with more companies to protect ecosystems around the world”.
