Inédit : La Résolution de l'arbre a été votée par les actionnaires d'Accor lors de l'Assemblée Générale annuelle. Avec déjà 4 millions d'arbres plantés dans le monde depuis 2009 grâce à Plant for the Planet, Accor a pris acte de ce programme innovant qui mobilise consommateurs, collaborateurs et communautés locales pour un développement durable. 10 millions d'arbres vont ainsi être plantés d'ici 2021, un cas unique dans l'industrie hôtelière. Nous saluons cette initiative qui constitue une grande première dans le monde économique et nous espérons que ce mouvement de mobilisation lancée par Accor en faveur du Climat et de la...

Paul Rice is a leading figure of Fair Trade, especially in the US, where he founded and leads Fairtrade USA since 1998, the main fair trade label. We met in a Rice (!..) field in Thailand about 7 years ago, checking farms and feeling straight away like "brothers in arms". He just passed by at the Pure Farm last week-end, for a good socio-entrepreneurial boost,.. Paul is indeed a great source of inspiration as his vision is "impact driven", always focusing on how to leverage the Fair Trade reach and impact from niche to mainstream. Agile, he does not hesitate... Continue reading

Bravo aux etudiants qui resistent pacifiquement et demandent juste a ce qu'un mininimum de democratie soit maintenu et leurs droits respectes (sur cette photo, au centre, un des fondateurs du mouvement, Joshua Wong). Ils se font violement taper dessus alors qu'ils sont totalement pacifistes depuis le debut. La Chine elle montre son vrai visage, totalitaire et violent vis a vis de toute forme d'opposition, ou meme de debat. C'est peut-etre l'opportunite pour HK d'engager un mouvement de fond dans d'autres provinces Chinoises : au Tibet, au Xinjiang (avec les Ouigours eux aussi persecutes,..), ou la repression est aussi sans merci....

Les "amis de la terre" nous ont violement attaque publiquement ainsi que nos partenaires au Perou, qui developpent le projet de conservation forestiere Martin Sagrado. Ils refusent a present de publier notre droit de reponse. Une attitude qui ne nous etonne pas. Depuis le debut, ils ont fait une "pseudo-enquete" de terrain insultante pour les populations locales, qui n'ont d'apres eux rien compris au projet et se font manipuler, alors que les adt n'ont meme pas rencontre les dirigeants et administrateurs du projet, ni les autorites locales, les certificateurs et l'UNESCO qui soutient le projet,,,Un comble ! Nous denoncons un... Continue reading

I am participating to the World Economic Forum taking place in Tianjin, China this week, called the "Summer Davos" meeting. Quite interesting to see that, right at the heart of the issue, we start to talk about Environmental issues, natural medicines to solve current medicinal issues and Sustainability. It is even a priority for the Chinese Govt. Great to hear, but long, very long way to go... Tianjin is the third largest town of China next to Beijing, and all its devpt is based on industrial manufacturing of consumer goods, electronics in particular, it is the main industrial hub with...

So happy and proud to announce that we've committed with Nespresso to plant 10 million trees in agroforestry models by 2020 with their partnering coffee farmers around the World. We already started in Colombia and Guatemala, and will expand next year in Mexico, Ethiopia, South Sudan and India. It is one of the most ambitious and integrated... Continue reading

Very inspiring to participate to the World Congress on Agroforestry in New Dehli, organized by ICRAF. It gathers more than a thousand researchers, ngos and experts on Agroforestry worldwide to share on the latest findings and innovations on Agroforestry. It strengthens even more our belief that Agroforestry is one of the most effective solution to regenerate agricultural ecosystems and diversify small-scale farmers incomes and food sources. I presented there how Agroforestry is a great tool for Insetting (offsetting internally) the companies environmental footprint (carbon, water, biodiversity,..) and secure their supply chains. Companies and the public need to be much more... Continue reading

Lately, I've had the chance to participate to Nespresso's Sustainability Board Meeting, where George Clooney participed, as he is their Brand Amabassador. This guy really impressed me for his dedication to causes like Darfur and Sudan, his humble attitude and very sharp insights during that meeting. It is very important that "famous people" get involved and speak out for causes as he does, as the whole world is watching them and trying to imitate them. Let's wish all opinion leaders could be as involved as he is. The World would definetly look very different.. Continue reading

A cooperative of 650 organic and fair trade rice farmers,.. Wish us a lot of rain !!,, This area is very dry and soil very degraded and sandy, almost like a desert in some places,, Continue reading

Famous Vietnamese environmentalist and biologist professor Vo Quy explains that during the Vietnam war "around 2 million hectares of tropical forests were destroyed, and another million hectares severely damaged, by 80 million litres of herbicides, 13 million tonnes of bombs creating 25 million craters, napalm, and a huge fleet of bulldozers". Given that the forest cover is estimated to have dropped from 43% (about 14 million hectares) in 1945, to 24% (8 million hectares) in 1980, the percentage of forest destroyed directly by war represents about one-third of total forest destruction.

It is urgent to link companies with their own ecosystem, at least to secure their long term development and to reconcile economic development with environmental preservation. It is important to help companies integrate social and environmental innovative projects within their own supply chains and core business, to make their operations more sustainable and offsets their environmental footprint at the same time. And you, how can you "Inset" your business or help us bring Insetting a step forward ?... Please advise !,, Insetting = Offseting your social and environmental footprint within your own business.

I am not talking about Wall Street or new banking opportunities but just about Trees. It costs nothing or a few cents to plant a tree and it will give you huge and multiples returns for years.. Here on this picture a coffee field intercroped with "Falcata" trees, in the Philippines. Falcata is a leguminosis tree, meaning it gives nitrogen to the soil (enriches the soil), gives shade, keeps moisture in the soil and oxygenates roots of the coffee trees, hence giving more fruit. A Falcata seedling costs 1 Peso ( 0.02 Euro), and after 7 years, only its timber... Continue reading

Il existe deux principales manieres de planter du riz : en semant les graines a la volee directement en plein champs, ou en transplantant des plantons (photo), apres 20 jours a un mois, depuis une pepiniere dans la riziere. Dans les deux cas, on innonde la riziere pour faciliter la pousse et eviter le developpement des mauvaises herbes. Il existe une methode beaucoup plus recente (developpee depuis les annees 1960, et connue depuis les annees 1980) appelee SRI (Systeme de Riziculture Intensif), developpee un peu par hasard par un missionaire francais a Madagascar, et qui a ensuite ete testee dans...

Non, ce n'est pas une blague de très mauvais goût, ceci est bien la carte des concessions d'exploration pétrolières au Pérou. Les concessions existantes couvrent déjà 42 % de la forêt Amazoniene du Pérou (jaune), et avec celles à venir (jaune grisées), on attendra les 70 %. Un non sens écologique (déforestation massive en perspective et pollution des rivières) mais aussi économique car les populations locales ne recevront rien ou presque en échange. Il est possible de participer à sauver ces forêts, grâce en particulier aux mécanismes de développement propres (compensation carbone) qui prouvent qu'on peut générer plus de richesses...
