Our mission


Main focus in the foundation

Striving for harmonious coexistence of humans, animals and plants on our planet

Observation and evaluation of current developments in the field of environmental protection

Regular exchange with other environmental and nature conservation organisations

Responsible and targeted use of the foundation's capital

Reducing the negative impacts on the environment caused by climate change

Selection and implementation of effective measures for efficient environmental protection

Support of nature conservation, landscape maintenance, environmental protection, education, science and research.

Measures that serve the protection and reforestation of forests while simultaneously combating economically motivated logging (unless it serves to avert danger).

Strengthening alternative energy resources, such as wind power, hydropower and solar energy (as well as raising awareness in the population).

Building closer relations to the forest in all generations through adventurous forest tours or action days, children's birthday parties in the forest, weekends and family Sundays spent in the forest.

Promoting scientific research of forest threats from drought, storms, extreme temperatures, forest fires, monocultures and widespread deforestation.

Supporting NGOs in the creation and protection of virgin forests and biodiverse mixed forests.

Sustainable strategies in the areas of eco-farming and agriculture that's close to nature.

Promoting measures that improve the carbon footprint in the areas of energy, tourism, agriculture, consumption, transport, waste, business and private households.

Biodiversity, protecting species and sheltered forest areas for animals.

Sustainability & Ethics

Our laptops and monitors are recycled equipment from AfB gemeinnützige GmbH in Berlin. With Raidboxes, we have a secure and climate-positive WordPress hosting. Their data centres are located in Germany and are DSGVO compliant. They guarantee to run on green electricity from hydropower and they also plant a tree for every WordPress site hosted.

Bank Accounts

All of the foundation's bank accounts are at the GLS Gemeinschaftsbank eG. With them, we share our social, ethic and ecological standards. It is highly important to us that even side issue like banking are realised sustainably, and that financial investment in any taboo sector is strictly excluded.

Rental houses

The rental houses owned by the foundation are mainly renovated to be energy efficient and use eco-electricity and eco-gas from Greenpeace. To find out more about our ethical principles in renting these homes, click here.
