For a better future

Van bulk jOins forces with go forest

Today, we are proud to be able to donate part of our profits to support the actions of Go Forest. By choosing our wines, you contribute to the protection of our planet and its biodiversity as well as to the slowing down of global warming through the planting of trees. We are committed to financing the planting of a minimum of 15 trees per month in agroforestry with Go Forest in order to support the local population.

Our project

Why agroforestry?

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 beauty of nature

The congolese lands'

The Congo Basin covers six countries: Cameroon, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. It is one of the largest tracts of continuous tropical forest, and is the second largest rainforest on the planet, after the Amazon. There are approximately 10,000 species of tropical plants, 30% of which are endemic to this region.
The Democratic Republic of Congo is one of the 17 countries in the world classified as “mega-diverse”. These countries are considered to be the richest on the planet in terms of biological diversity. The majority of plant and animal species found on Earth are represented there, with a high rate of endemic species.

Helping local population

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.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals are a universal language that gives us the path to a better and sustainable future for all. They address the challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, environmental degradation, peace and justice. They are all interconnected and, in order to leave no one behind, it is important to reach every one of them!
