With the DMEXCO Forest, we have been committed to an agroforestry project in Kenya, Ecuador, Cameroon and Madagascar since 2019. Together with the Social Business Treedom more than 3,000 trees have been planted, which will store around 1 million kilograms of CO2 by 2029.
The tree plantings contribute to poverty alleviation and economic growth in the region. Another focus is the fight for gender equality. A large proportion of the participants are women who are planting trees for the first time themselves or running the tree nurseries. In workshops and training sessions, they learn the necessary know-how for planting and caring for the trees.
