Dutch Bamboo is a non-profit public benefit organization helping to shape a net zero carbon economy.
How do we work?
We will provide an unconventional mitigation solution for Carbon Dioxide removal as a new approach in EU climate policy, with Dutch Bamboo Agroforestry plantations.
Bamboo creates a rapidly renewable carbon sink solution to help reverse climate change faster and with a higher rate of carbon dioxide (CO2) capture than when compared to many tree species. Within the new nature economy, bamboo is a viable opportunity as part of the NatureTech sector in harvesting and refining natural raw materials. We have an urgent need to collectively drawdown our carbon emissions worldwide, whilst we are faced with the challenges of increased materialism and resource consumption. To make a lasting impact, we know that we must actively engage and include the communities we are seeking to help. We are continually learning and growing in how we show up as an authentic, ethical partner.
What We Will Achieve
Research + Education = Innovation
Air purification and increased oxygen output
Cultivation for the Nature Tech Sector
Promote Food Security + Rural Livelihoods
Partnering with Local Communities
By nurturing relationships with likeminded organizations and private individuals, we're able to unlock new sources of capital and scale up our work far beyond what traditional funding can do alone.
Managed Bamboo based Agroforestry Plantations
