…because every tree counts
Our world depends on forests for our survival, from the air we breathe to the wood we use. Forests provide habitats for plants and animals and protect our water supplies. Too many forests have been stripped bare of their resources.
Leading the way in sustainable forestry
The Borneo Initiative restores degraded forests so they can regain their value. Through sustainable forestry, we are preserving the environment while enabling forest communities to earn a decent living.

Our 10 year plan
Since 2008, the Borneo Initiative has supported sustainable forestry in Indonesia. While we are proud of our achievements, much more needs to be done. Together with our partners, we will continue to support sustainable forestry. Our 10-year goals include managing a total of 12 million hectares of natural forests and restoring 4 million hectares of degraded forests throughout Indonesia. This will directly benefit over 2 million people in rural communities.
