For a better future
Van bulk jOins forces with go forest
Go Forest carries out reforestation projects all over the world. Seeds are collected from a nearby forest in order to maximise the diversity of native trees at the planting sites. For reforestation, the forest is simply copied. By choosing agroforestry, we choose to support the local population and their livelihoods by creating an additional source of income.
By combining trees and crops, agroforestry allows for better soil use, greater biological diversity and the creation of a microclimate that increases yields.
Some of the trees planted can thus be reused in the local economy without logging, by providing food, fodder for livestock or even mulch for crops.
These trees are planted by small-scale farmers and indigenous communities for maximum social impact. To begin our support of Go Forest, we have chosen to act in the Congo where agroforestry has a strong social impact through 580 local employees.

The goals supported by our project in congo
We have chosen to act in Congo with Go Forest because this project supports the local populations in a global way and has a strong impact. Planting trees in Congo contributes to many of the UN’s sustainable development goals, which are close to the heart of Van Bulck, such as addressing poverty and hunger, ensuring health and education for all and moving towards responsible consumption and production.
