From the sawmill to your home: the entire logistics from Betterwood is climate neutral. This means that the positive eco-balance is not lost when our goods are transported. In cooperation with our partner, we offset the CO2 emitted during transport from Latin America to our customers Co2ol completely - via a reforestation project in Bolivia.
In concrete terms, this means that deserted areas on the farms of Bolivian smallholders are reforested with a mixture of native tree species appropriate to the location. Fallow land is upgraded and sustainable ecological forestry is possible.
More than 15 percent of the project area are designated as nature reserves and offer permanent total reserves for the native flora and fauna. By setting up community businesses, the initiative supports the smallholders in selling the precious woods they produce together, which creates long-term income for the smallholders and is intended to ensure a valuable contribution to the sustainable development of the project region. The Bonn agency Co2ol coordinates the project and organizes the trading of Co2 certificates.
Betterwood transports the wooden terraces, Wooden tiles and Cutting boards CO2-neutral in the neighboring European countries Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Austria, the Czech Republic - and due to the great demand soon also in Switzerland.
