Commit your company to biodiversity

Commit your company to biodiversity

Protecting biodiversity can be part of your business strategy. In times of climate change , it is essential to take care of it. Not only does the erosion of biodiversity threaten our lives, but also the activities of our businesses. The WWF estimates that its decline costs the world $479 billion each year. LEARN MORE Supporting forests in a sustainable way also and above all means taking biodiversity into account. Indeed, the forests and peatlands that capture the carbon responsible for global warming are complex ecosystems that live all the better as life there is rich in interactions between insects, fungi, birds, mammals... You can involve your company and your employees in the recovery of biodiversity . 80% of consumers consider it important that companies have practices that respect biodiversity and 76% of employees take into account a company's interest in biodiversity.

Why EcoTree offers you the right solutions

Why EcoTree offers you the right solutions

Protecting biodiversity is as important as creating carbon sinks. We calculate our positive impact on biodiversity by conducting fauna and flora inventories. We have 22 local partners and 6 social projects in connection with schools and work reintegration programmes.
For each project, our ecologist partners inventory the species present and absent before our first actions, and then several years later, in order to concretely measure the importance of our work. Forests are complex ecosystems. The FAO* estimates the financial value of ecosystem services at $125,000 billion. These services provided by natural environments could increase the world's GDP by $490 billion each year. For this to happen, we need to manage biodiversity well on a daily basis.

Restoration of wetlands

Découvrir ↓
Wetlands (forest ponds, peat bogs, riparian forests) are ecological corridors at the interface of land and water, essential for aquatic and forest fauna and flora. Peatlands store about 30% of the CO2 of terrestrial ecosystems. The quality of the water and the banks determines the abundance of life. We take stock of the situation and act when necessary to restore a peat bog or a pond, or to clear a forest stream.

Installation of beehives, planting of melliferous hedges

Découvrir →
Pollination provides 80% of our food. Honey bees are the most efficient insects for this in terms of numbers. Their presence in certain forests is recommended, not only for their survival but for the life of plants and trees. Together with experts we define the forests where beehives can be installed. If necessary, we plant melliferous hedges. We care for the bees and harvest the honey.

Creation of flowering fallows

Découvrir →
Creating a flowering fallow is often necessary to let the soil rest between two farms. As a reservoir of biodiversity, flowering fallow land is essential for pollinating insects, birds and mammals. It fits perfectly into the framework of organic farming. We prepare the soil, sow and plant with particular attention to favouring rare and local species.

Creation of Miyawaki inspired forests

Découvrir →
The forest planting method put in place by Akira Miyawaki aims to install dense forests planted with local and indigenous tree species in order to restore a once present ecosystem. Thus, we identify native tree species, enrich the soil, protect it with mulch and plant the trees. Then, we maintain the wood and carry out an inventory of the fauna and flora.

Developing agroforestry

Découvrir →
Agroforestry is the planting of trees and shrubs on land used for agriculture or grazing. Some crops are more productive when planted with trees. Trees enrich soils and some naturally add nitrogen. Trees purify water and maintain soil. This practice helps to diversify farm income. We study the projects and implement them.

How does it work?

Together we define the project you want to support and how it will add value to your business.

All our projects focus on forest ecosystems - they are monitored and supervised by experts

Each year, a report is sent to you, detailing the progress of the project in which you are participating.

Projects are carried out on a long-term basis. We monitor and inform you of their long-term development.

Your action supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Our sustainable forest management sequesters carbon and curbs the erosion of biodiversity. It is in line with the law for the reconquest of biodiversity and contributes to the fight against climate change.

What are the figures for biodiversity loss?

80% of terrestrial biodiversity is found in forests (WWF).

In France, 30% of animal and plant species are threatened. (IPCC)

70% more invasive alien species have been identified since 1970, in the 21 countries that have studied this issue closely. (IPBES)

500,000 terrestrial species (out of 5.9 million) no longer have a natural habitat for their long-term survival, unless it is restored in the meantime (IPBES)

75% of terrestrial environments are said to be "severely altered" by human activities(40% for marine environments). (IPBES)
