Your entrepreneurial forest supports the indigenous communities of the Colombian Amazon, who plant native trees for their food security and create green businesses that help them in their livelihoods, obtaining work through planting and caring for trees.
Each tree is photographed and georeferenced; This photo is uploaded to the platform of www.savingtheamazon.org, to create a virtual forest and provide proof that the trees are planted. The natives take care of them for thirty-six months, a time of care that an Amazonian tree requires to survive on its own, and in the months of January and June, the trees are photographed again and uploaded to our website to track traceability of forest growth.
How do our business forests work?
The trees planted are marked with the name of your company, your customers, or your workers as an act of support for 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 in the name of your company, you will receive a business certificate that notifies the amount of trees planted and active participation within the Saving The Amazon Foundation.
If you plant the forest with the names of your clients or workers, each individual person receives a certification diploma and a letter informing that your company has planted a tree.
Indigenous communities care for 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 to track its traceability.
The company receives a certificate from Saving The Amazon, and our company-friendly seal with The Amazon.
