At Jagger, we select partnership programmes with a holistic approach to reforestation and ecological restoration. Our preference is for programme projects within deforested areas that support the local community by employing local people and helping animal livelihood.
If there is an area where trees grow naturally, we know this area offers an environment where trees can thrive. Where we can support regenerative agriculture and biodiversity, we support multiple causes. We believe in following the species' natural succession path, which is the most effective way to get to a new forest eventually. The first trees prepare the way for other species on bare land because they fix nitrogen or capture water. Animals shall be attracted by new trees and can create micro-eco systems.
Furthermore, the cost of growing trees is a crucial element. We believe that project needs to be scalable at a low price the create the maximum impact.
