Association for environment regeneration
Bioforest ONLUS, founded in 1998, aims to promote a more eco-friendly productive culture with the active restoration and safeguard of the natural resources.
How it is financed
Managing costs are fully covered by partner companies, which offer their knowledge and their means for free to carry out secretarial and administration duties, print material and advertising. Companies also offer a financial base to guarantee continuation of the projects.
This solution ensures that all the money collected from public or private Institutions, Foundations, Associations, Committees, Groups as well as individuals and the Associations’ partners and supporters is fully allocated to finance the projects.
It is a "new alliance" between Industry and Environment, which intends to give an important signal: a serious and long-lasting commitment.
The Association, as laid down in its statute, aims at:
gathering whoever wishes to commit to the regeneration and reconstruction of destroyed or degraded forest ecosystems, in Italy and in the world;
financing projects of reforestation, respecting the original natural ecosystems and, if necessary for the safeguard and protection of the environment, purchasing biologically significant areas where extremely rare and even unique endangered plant and animal species are found;
encouraging and supporting scientific study and research activities in the areas concerned and/or purchased, using the most up-to-date techniques;
offering scholarships and supporting the continuation of studies for young people in need who live in the areas concerned by the projects and have the skills or are interested in the natural environment;
supporting families in need who live in the areas concerned by the projects and actively participate in their implementation;
promoting information and awareness campaigns on the projects, initiatives and events organised by the Association in schools of every grade, Universities and research centres;
involving the media and public opinion with debates, conferences, meeting and other initiatives regarding the activities carried out, focusing on environmental problems and ways to develop correct and harmonious man/nature relations;
developing respect for the fundamental rights of ecology, such as recycling, reducing energy and raw material consumption, eliminating toxic substances from productive processes.
