Get involved in conserving biodiversity

Conserving biodiversity is an important step in acting for the planet and achieving your sustainable development goals at the same time.

Commit your business to biodiversity

Commit your business to biodiversity

With EcoTree, protecting biodiversity can be part of your business strategy. In these times of climate challenges, it's crucial to get involved. Not only does the erosion of biodiversity threaten our lives, but also the activities of your businesses. WWF estimates that the decline of the quality of biodiversity costs the world around $479 billion each year. You can't sustainably support forests without also taking biodiversity into account. Forests and wetlands are important carbon sinks, and they make for complex ecosystems and habitats for insects, fungi, birds, mammals and more. You can get your company engaged in the recovery of biodiversity. Why? 80% of consumers believe it's important for companies to have practices that respect biodiversity. 76% of employees take a company's interest in biodiversity into account. (Ipsos)

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.

Our biodiversity conservation projects

Our biodiversity conservation projects

Restoration of wetlands

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

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.

EcoTree

Creation of flowering fallows

Creating a flowering fallow is often necessary to let the soil rest between two seasons of harvest. 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.

EcoTree

Creation of Miyawaki inspired forests

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.

EcoTree

Developing agroforestry

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.

EcoTree

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

Here at EcoTree, we are experts in sustainable forest management. The trees you buy in our forests sequester carbon and help slow the erosion of biodiversity. When you buy EcoTree trees as a corporate gift, you actively help the planet work towards the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and contribute to the fight against climate change.

We were keen to join forces with a French company and to develop local actions in favour of biodiversity together. The projects are concrete and the team regularly provides feedback from the field.

It was a very nice project, we are proud to have carried out this project with EcoTree to carry out agroforestry projects, planting hedges in the agricultural environment.

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).
