FOREST PROTECTION

 The Forest 500 are the 500 most important companies, financial institutions and jurisdictions worldwide when it comes to addressing global tropical deforestation driven by the production and trade of major forest risk commodities (specifically palm oil; soya; timber, pulp and paper; and beef and leather).

Every two years, these ‘powerbrokers’ are selected, objectively, through the Global Canopy Programme’s Forest 500 project, based on their exposure to forest risk commodity supply chains and their potential to transform relevant markets in the race towards a deforestation-free global economy.

Quantrust neutralises the exposure of its funds to the most damaging companies on the Forest 500 list and advises its institutional advisory clients to do the same.

 

REFORESTATION

Trees for All, voorheen Trees for Travel, is een stichting en erkend goed doel met CBF-Keur. Jouw bijdrage voor CO2-compensatie en het planten van bomen investeren wij in de aanleg van nieuw bos en de bescherming van bestaand bos. Deze projecten leveren extra inkomsten op voor de lokale bevolking en dragen bij aan herstel van natuur en milieu.

Wij zijn opgericht in 1999. We zijn de meest ervaren aanbieder van CO2-compensatie in Nederland en hebben al miljoenen bomen en struiken voor je geplant.

In Nederland werken we met een professionele werkorganisatie, een onafhankelijk bestuur en vrijwilligers. Daarnaast zijn veel mensen actief in onze projecten in het buitenland.

Quantrust supports Trees for Life and in January 2018's planted 60 trees with Trees for Life of which 30 in The Philippines and 30 in The Netherlands.

 

The MESCOT Initiative is fundamentally concerned with protecting the forest habitat, wildlife and biodiversity of the Lower Kinabatangan in Saba, Malaysian Borneo, while preserving the livelihood of the local population. The MESCOT Initiative was founded by the local indigenous people (”Orang Sungai”) of the Batu Puteh community in 1997 who formed a village-based cooperative (KOPEL Ltd) in 2003 to coordinate the villager’s conservation activities and their community-based ecotourism activities.

Willem Klein Haneveld, Quantrust's CEO, worked as a volunteer at Mescot in 2013 and continues to encourage its efforts to reconnect the remaining rain forest areas in the Lower Kinabatangan and protect the natural habitat of the Bornean Orangutan and Borneo Pigmy Elephant.
