Rainforests to combat climate change

Our generation forests are nature-oriented rainforests that will exist forever. We generate green dividends for our members and actively combat climate change through sustainable forest management with fair conditions at our sites.

Climate protection & carbon offsetting

We plant tropical forests to combat ongoing deforestation and remove CO2 from the atmosphere with our generation forests: according to an independent study, this amounts to 14 tonnes of CO2 per hectare of forest each year. Instead of using technological innovations to store CO2, we offer a natural solution that has worked for thousands of years.

Slow Finance:
A green investment scheme with purpose

Our investment scheme relies on patience, as its value grows with our forests, which are home to valuable, tropical noble woods. Sustainable forest management enables us to generate green dividends for our cooperative members and therefore avoid speculative assumptions on issues such as the increasing price of wood and land.

What our members say

  • I take responsibility for what we are doing with the planet. Forests are essential for our future, and not just the ones on our doorstep.

  • I am a member of Generation Forest as, in my opinion, money needs to contribute to solving acute environmental and social issues, rather than exacerbate them.

    CEO Fairantwortung AG

  • I’ve watched with horror as the most diverse forests on our planet have been destroyed time and again since my youth. The helplessness that I felt back then has been increasingly transformed into energy and action through my involvement in the cooperative. I now represent the cooperative at sustainability and climate stores in my region. It provides me with unrivalled levels of joy to be able to inspire others with our vision.
