Does your company value sustainability, preserving biodiversity and reducing carbon dioxide emissions? If so, you can invest in REDD+ projects to help you achieve your goals. Member companies of the REDD+ Business Initiative companies voluntarily contribute to a sustainable planet. Together we invest in conserving tropical rainforests and motivate others to do the same.
Why join the REDD+ Business Initiative?
There is a strong business case for becoming a member of the REDD+ Business Initiative. A major benefit is the support you get for integrating REDD+ in your business strategy. This results in a concrete, measurable contribution to the conservation of biodiversity and the realisation of the Sustainable Development Goals and the Paris Agreement in a cost-effective way and with immediate results.
As a member you can help leverage the billions in public ‘seed funding’ already committed to
REDD+, which offers you direct interaction with the most important actors in this field (NGOs, NL &
EU Governments). It offers you an international stage to present your company as part of a powerful coalition. And last but not least; working on REDD+ with a broad range of companies is an inspiring and motivating experience.
“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”
Rudi DaelmansGroup sustainability scouting and advocacy director - Tarkett
“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!”

That is why we are participating in the REDD+ Business Initiative, where -in collaboration with other companies- we support Peruvian cocoa farming communities to produce sustainable cocoa while reducing their environmental footprint. We are proud to be a part of this powerful initiative and hope to partner with more companies to protect ecosystems around the world”.
