Mission and Vision


To eradicate poverty in Africa and care for the environment, by planting as many trees as there are people on the planet.


Developing a holistic, sustainable and commercial forestry enterprise by involving people from all over the world to support our work in Africa because;

  • We realize that planting trees is caring about people and the environment
  • We create wealth for local people, among them a significant percentage of women
  • We improve rural livelihoods through assistance to Partner-farmers with agroforestry, microfinance, education and water supply
  • We work in semi-arid land, not suitable for agriculture production, where we make the biggest difference for the communities, with our agro-ecology model
  • We will create massive employment by processing and exporting African wood products.
Fundamental business principles

It is important to distinguish the work in the plantation areas, and Better Globe Forestry's interventions in the so-called "buffer zones", surrounding the plantations. We recognise that a good-neighbour policy is the best way to protect our plantations and as such we have developed a range of interventions to cooperate with neighbouring communities and individuals.

Our fundamental business principle is to conduct all our transactions with integrity and in accordance with good business ethics and practices.

Better Globe Forestry Ltd is the agent of Better Globe AS in Norway for the implementation of their tree-planting objectives. The relationship is regulated by contract and BGF is accountable to BG AS for the planting, growing, maintenance, harvesting and selling of the different wood products from the plantations.
