“EcoPlanet Bamboo is 100% committed to creating “triple bottom line” returns (financial, social & environmental) through our global bamboo plantations. We believe that “conscious capitalism” is the only sustainable way to change the world by reducing poverty via job creation and a reversal of negative land use change.”

EcoPlanet Bamboo aims to address deforestation by making bamboo the timber of the 21st century. It is the largest owner and operator of commercial bamboo plantations outside of China, with plantations in Central America and Southern Africa. EcoPlanet Bamboo aims to become the leading provider of bamboo products and raw materials to manufacturing companies in the US, Europe and Middle East regions.

EcoPlanet Bamboo was the first company to receive carbon validation through the Verified Carbon Standard for its bamboo plantations in Nicaragua and has been shortlisted for the Innovation Prize for Africa 2013.
