We Are Pragmatic Visionaries!

Fairventures Worldwide is a non-profit organization based in Stuttgart, Germany. We combine forestry and modern technologies to reforest degraded areas in the tropics. In cooperation with smallholder farmers in Indonesia and Uganda, we create sustainable forests from timber and food crops. These provide local people with a secure income, help to preserve biodiversity and counteract climate change.

Together with partners from academia, the business community and the public sector, we combine reforestation with sustainable value chains in the timber industry to replace climate-damaging building materials such as concrete, cement and steel. We finance our work with donations, grants, corporate partnerships and consulting services.
