The Project consists of establishing new teak plantations on degraded land in the states of Tabasco, Chiapas, and Campeche, in southern Mexico. The main objective is to restore land degraded mainly by extensive cattle ranching, which has contributed to deforestation and loss of habitat for wildlife.

Thanks to the protection of the land, the project provides new job opportunities for local communities, contributing significantly to the sustainable development of the areas through the creation of a sustainable Teak supply chain.

The project, thanks to the reduction of atmospheric emissions, contributes concretely to the mitigation of climate change and the preservation of local biodiversity.
