Working with Forest Communities for a Better Future
Tropical Forest Plantations Limited is a British company that was formed to create and manage
a portfolio of sustainable forestry plantations and forest reserves throughout
the tropical regions of Africa, protecting natural forest reserves and
producing timber products and wood biofuels for use both by the host countries
and for export, while preserving and enhancing the environment and creating sustainable employment opportunities for local people.
In doing so, we combine a commercial
forestry model with a social enterprise model that provides long-term
sustainable funding to support infrastructure development and social
enterprises within the host communities, including schools, health clinics, micro-finance,
electricity generation and distribution.
