Redefining Business With Environmental Restoration
14th March 2018
EcoPlanet Bamboo has been featured in a Conservation Finance Op-Ed. Entitled "Redefining Business With Environmental Restoration", author Andrew Yu highlights a topic that EcoPlanet Bamboo has been intimately involved with over the past few years - the paradigm shift of business going from being the polluter or the bad actor to one that can have massive positive impact on our environment and communities.
In the article, Yu asks:
Imagine businesses that make money by improving the land and communities around them. Imagine an economy that rewards those who nourish and restore the environment, instead of those who plunder and degrade it. What would those businesses look like?
EcoPlanet Bamboo is subsequently highlighted as one of three examples of what such a business would look like, drawn from 14 companies highlighted within a recent report, The Business of Planting Trees, by the World Resources Institute and the Nature Conservancy.
EcoPlanet Bamboo is for profit company with three main objectives:
(1) To reduce global deforestation by providing a market viable solution through the provision of a sustainable alternative fiber to wood and fiber markets globally.
(2) To restore highly degraded land back to economic productivity while restoring the critical ecosystem functions at a landscape scale.
(3) To positively impact global poverty through the provision of livelihood opportunities and economic diversification within areas that suffer from abject poverty.
Through our operations we strive towards providing positive and tangible examples of how, in today's world and for today's consumer, businesses can and should be contributing to positive environmental and social gains.
