What we do

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges humanity has ever faced. That’s why The Generation Forest cooperative is dedicated to fostering a healthy global climate – by planting as many trees as possible, as sustainably as possible, all while working hand in hand with local people. In our work, we make use of a groundbreaking innovation in sustainable forestry: the generation forest model

We are convinced that entrepreneurial action can – and must – be socially responsible. Environmental protection can go hand in hand with a growing economy. Together with members from around the world, you can help plant sustainable, “generation forests” that last for centuries – investing in humanity, biodiversity, and the future.

Become a member this year and save 54 € per share

You can save 54 € for each share if you become a member untill 31.12.2019. Click here to read more.

Since the basis sale prices of a cooperative share always remains the same, but the value of the forest grows naturally, for the sake of fairness, an increasing entrance fee is added to the basis price of new shares each year. This entrance fee corresponds to the increase in value of the forests and to the advantage of a shorter remaining maturity until the first payout. The amount of the surcharge (also called admission fee) is determined each year at the general meeting.

Sustainable Reforestation

Most reforestation projects consist of mass-planting of a single exotic tree species like eucalyptus or teak. When these projects are ended, the monocultures are cleared and the land is often left in a worse condition than before. We plant forests differently – with an eye to their ecological as well as economic viability. We currently have four active reforestation projects ongoing in Panama.

Impact Investment

Investment doesn’t need to have a negative impact on the environment. This is why we always work to balance our projects’ economic benefits with their ecological sustainability and contributions to social development. Our business is based around the sale of sustainably-cultivated precious woods sourced from our own reforestation projects.
