The chalenges of compensatory

A demanding regulatory framework

The forest code (Art L. 341-1 and following) provide for strict regulations on clearing compensation, both in terms of project definition and the schedule to be respected

A financial commitment to be mastered

If the company wishes to pay the amount, fixed by the decree authorizing land clearing, directly to the strategic forest and timber fund, it is exposed to the higher maximum amount, without really participating to the preservation of forests in France.

An ethical approach and image

The organization which takes the decision to clear the land without reforesting, exposes its notoriety and its reputation to criticism from many detractors. 

For a global approach to compensatory afforestation

Project management from A to Z = Time saving

An ethical and sustainable approach to projects

Projects selected for their relevance and sustainability
  • Projects must have a sustainable management document
  • Diversity of species and adaptation to climate change
  • Promote the environmental and socio-economic co-benefits of projects
  • Choices of projects adapted to the challenges of each region

We send the complete descriptive sheets of the projects (choice of species, technical itinerary, the ecosystem services provided by the forests) and the follow-up information of these projects.

As an option, we offer events in the forest for the public or company stakeholders : educational and fun activities in the forest (visit to the forest, plantations, concerts, orienteering, etc). For more details, visit our dedicated page.
