Your business forest supports the indigenous communities of the Colombian Amazon, who plant native trees for food security and create green businesses that help them in their subsistence, obtaining work by planting and caring trees.
Each tree is photographed and georeferenced; This photo is uploaded to the platform of www.savingtheamazon.org, to create a virtual forest and give proof that the trees are planted. The indigenous people take care of them for thirty-six months, a time of care that requires an Amazonian tree to survive on its own, and in the months of January and June, the trees are photographed again and uploaded to our website as a follow-up, to trace the growth of the forest.
How does our business forests work?
The trees planted are labeled with the name of your company, your clients, or your workers as an act of support to the future of the planet.
The indigenous communities take a georeferenced photo of each tree and send it to be uploaded to our website, creating the virtual forest of the company. Your company receives the virtual forest link, so you can promote it.
If you plant a forest on behalf of your company, you will receive a business certificate that notifies the number of trees planted, and the active participation within the Saving The Amazon Foundation.
If you plant the forest with the names of your clients or workers, each individual receives a diploma and a letter informing that your company has planted a tree in their name.
Indigenous communities take care of the trees for 36 months. In the months of January and June they take a photo and send it to be uploaded to the platform and follow its traceability and growth.
The company receives a certificate from Saving The Amazon, and our “Friendly to the Amazon Company” seal.
