EcoPlanet Bamboo & The Global Restoration Council
5th July 2016
Over the past 24 months there has been an increasing focus on the critical need for the restoration of the world's degraded and degrading lands. International commitments towards restoration goals in the form of the Bonn Challenge, which targets the restoration of 150 million hectares by 2030, have been followed by regional commitments such as Initiative 20x20 and AFR100, within which individual countries have made national pledges on areas to be restored.
EcoPlanet Bamboo has consistently been recognized and showcased by international entities including the World Resources Institute, FAO and the World Bank for the company's investments into sustainable bamboo plantations, as well as the framework of sustainability under which all EcoPlanet investments are carried out.
The Global Restoration Council aims to harness the collective wisdom, influence and energy of its members to catalyze and sustain a global movement for restoration. The Council is a voluntary, non-departmental entity supported by the World Resources Institute on behalf of, and as a contribution to, the Global Partnership for Forest Landscape Restoration (GPFLR) and in support of other organizations that are actively engaged in restoration activities.
EcoPlanet Bamboo's achievements in the field of Forest Landscape Restoration have been recognized by this prestigous council alongside high profile personalities including Felipe Calderón - former President of Mexico, Naoko Ishii - CEO and Chairperson for the Global Environment Facility, Wanjira Mathai - Chairperson of the Green Belt Movement and Dr. Göran Persson - former Prime Minister of Sweden.
