Impact Business Model
With Treedom you finance farmers who plant trees, supporting their work in the early years, when the trees are not yet productive. The farmers receive know-how and technical support from Treedom for tree planting and management. Trees are photographed, geolocated and monitored by Treedom over time.
All the trees planted with Treedom are geolocated and photographed. All information (tree species, coordinates, etc.) are recorded in our database and made accessible to the public thanks to the Treedom Tree Registry.
Make a difference
Making a positive difference for the planet is a fundamental value of our work. Each of our projects must achieve an improvement in the planet's environmental conditions. For this to be possible and verifiable, our monitoring system is completely transparent and our trees traceable.
Our project areas must benefit overall from the initiatives we implement. The selection of the species to be planted is determined according to the needs expressed by the local communities, respecting local biodiversity. Native plant species are clearly preferred, so as not to pose a threat to the local flora and fauna.
Each Treedom agroforestry project must also have a high social value. Treedom has the clear mission to engage farmers' groups and cooperatives, and their own families, in order for the reforestation projects to create truly empowered local communities.
In addition to financial support for tree planting and care, Treedom projects must deliver tangible economic benefits to local communities, such as: creating new jobs and alternative sources of income, training and education opportunities, etc. Our project partners are encouraged to ensure a fair distribution of resources to ensure economic benefits for all small farmers, agricultural cooperatives and the rest of the population.
Combating soil erosion and desertification
The creation of small agroforestry systems makes it possible to respond precisely to the needs of each project area and make appropriate decisions regarding the tree species to be planted, taking into account local environmental factors. In addition to the planting of exclusively native plants and / or the reintroduction of specific plant species after severe deforestation, great importance is attached to a sustainable use of resources and soils. In this way, local ecosystems will be strengthened in the long term and an essential contribution will be made to the protection of biodiversity. Finally, all the trees will absorb CO2 in the course of their lives, and thus naturally contribute to climate regulation.
Economic and social benefits
Training and income opportunities
Securing land tenure
Strengthening food security
Opening of further educational opportunities
Treedom directly finances agroforestry projects of high social and economic value. It is extremely important that the farmers involved in the projects are independent guardians of their land. For only if the trees and their fruits belong to the agricultural cooperatives can they profit from an economic point of view. The goal is for them to be able to diversify their income, increase their long-term productivity and start initiatives for micro-enterprises. This creates a financial foundation that, in turn, brings social benefits to local communities.
Sustainable development goals
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations Development Program in 2015 to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all in the context of a new sustainable development agenda. Treedom's tree planting activities in Asia, Africa, South America and Italy make a significant contribution to tackling a total of 10 challenges to secure a sustainable future.
