About WeForest

WeForest is a science-based international non-profit established in Belgium and France that specializes in engaging companies to act for CLIMATE, PLANET and PEOPLE. Our FOREST LANDSCAPE RESTORATION projects in tropical countries directly deliver on 8 of the 17 SDGs and transform entire regions.
