Surrounded by the largest area of environmental conservation of the State of Ceará and with an exuberant richness of biodiversity, Ymbu is in a transitional region that covers biomes of the Atlantic Rainforest, dry forest and Caatinga (semi-arid environment).
- A reforestation company focusing on sustainability, technology and process quality, with a positive environmental and social impact. It operates in the region since 2015 and already has 83 hectares of planted forests plus over 500 hectares of protected areas.
- We work with native species of the Caatinga, Brazils northeastern semi-arid, employing local and specialised labor.
- We are a country-wide reference for Sustainability
WHAT WE BELIEVE IN
- We believe that the problems affecting the northeastern semi-arid region in Brazil are almost entirely related to the resistance in the adoption of appropriate techniques to the climatic conditions and to the recognition of the aptitude of the natural resources present in the region
- We want to show that it is possible to have a highly vegetated and also highly productive area in such a climate. The protection, enrichment and proper management of our forests are essential for the sustainability of local life and agriculture.
OUR LOCAL TEAM
