Together we transform fallow land into sustainable forests

We are very excited about the cooperation with the non-profit-organisation Fairventures Worldwide.
Fairventures Worldwide is successfully reforesting and protecting the rainforest in Borneo and other regions.

50 soccer fields every minute – in this speed we lose the global forests. One of the most valuable ecosystems on earth is destroyed at incredible rates.

Modern developments, such as globalization, have significantly altered the drivers of deforestation in the past decades. The harvest of tropical timber for the global market or deforestation by small-holder farmers are minor factors nowadays. In fact, commercial agriculture and plantation economy is responsible for about 70% of deforestation.

This very intensive agriculture predominantly grows soy and oil palm. But also cattle ranching, deforestation for firewood, forest plantations for pulp and paper and mining are strong deforestation drivers. Fairventures Worldwide wants to halt this threatening development.

WE CARE collection

Probably the most eco-friendly watch in the world, made with sustainable materials, produced with solar power.
We use modern technology to produce this watch with predominantly renewable resources.

For each watch sold of the WE CARE collection, 20 Swiss francs (approx. £17) goes directly to Fairventures Worldwide to help reforest and protect the rainforests in Borneo.

About Fairventures Worldwide

We implement large-scale reforestation projects in the tropics. To do this, we form partnerships with local communities to develop and test adequate local solutions. These solutions range from reforestation with fast-growing tree species to the production of sustainable timber and integrated agroforestry. In this way, we create new income opportunities for local people.
Our approach is demand-oriented: together with the private sector, we plan reforestations in such a way that they produce economically attractive raw materials. Our projects and products offer added value along the entire value chain and at the same time counteract the climate crisis.

VISION

Fairventures Worldwide will be a global leader in the reforestation of degraded land and the conservation of biodiverse forests on a large scale, in economically viable systems that benefit local communities.

 

MISSION
We combine best-practice agroforestry and technology to create sustainable forests where local communities can economically thrive and global value-chain actors can contribute to reforestation, increased biodiversity and the reversal of climate change.

APPROACH
Fairventures Worldwide works along the entire value chain of timber. We educate consumers and traders, support the processing trade in product innovations and advise about the topics of reforestation, soil improvement and land rights.
