WeForest

We engage corporations, organisations and scientists in collaborative action to advance forest landscape restoration. We restore by developing a portfolio of scalable, quality forest landscape restoration projects. We measure our projects progress and impact. Our goal is to successfully transform 250,000 ha of forest landscape by 2021, restoring 25,000 ha of forests (with an estimate of 25 million trees) demonstrating FLR best practices in different ecosystems and leading to the adoption of an international standard. WHY WEFOREST: Current global efforts are not enough to keep global warming to the 2 °C as agreed upon at COP21. Global emissions must peak at the latest by 2020 and the excess carbon dioxide must be removed from the atmosphere now. A simple solution exists that will buy us time until a low carbon economy is available everywhere. Healthy and growing forests remain the best technology for removing excess carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Our vision: We imagine a world where communities and nations sustainably manage their forests and natural resources for the benefit of our climate, our environment and humanity. Our mission: Building upon corporate and scientific partnerships, WeForest empowers communities to sustainably advance and implement innovative, high standard, scalable and lasting solutions to restore forest landscapes. Our values: The values that inspire our work are: Integrity, Transparency, Excellence, Collaboration, Passion, and Courage.
