Mission Statement and Goals
Human economic activity was always linked to an intervention in the environment. However, since the 70s we are taking more from the Earth than she can reproduce. Our following generations we leave debts, a destroyed environment and extreme inequality between humans. Particularly the poor are suffering.
We believe that an economy which provides a future for our children and grandchildren is possible. According to our mission we foster economic, social and ecological sustainabilty within and between generations. That approach is part of our non-profit projects, our services and our learning opportunities offered by the Fairventures Academy. Our thematic focus is a sustainable creation of the entire value chain of tropical forests and tropical wood.
Since 2005 we develop and implement projects in close cooperation with our partners in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe that are locally-owned from the very beginning. People are always the center of our work. By helping people to help themselves we support their ideas and strengthen their entrepreneurial spirit. Only in cooperation we can change the circumstances in the project areas to the better and help to not delegate today’s problems to coming generations.
