Why are we investing in bamboo?
Our mission is to provide the European industry with European low-footprint bamboo. Europe is the largest export market for bamboo products, has the ability to be a high-quality producer, but lacks the base material. Now, bamboo products are imported from other continents with all the negative impact going along.
The versatility of bamboo offers chances in numerous sectors giving a boost to sustainable economic development and job creation. At this moment the demand is bigger than the supply. Investing in bamboo generates stable long-term returns.
Bamboo for nature
By planting bamboo we are taking a lot of CO2 out of the air and regenerate degraded land. It is believed
that in 2030 one third of all European agricultural land will be degraded and not useful anymore for cultivation of food crops. That land is mostly suitable for growing bamboo. Bamboo, a pesticide free crop, can help regenerate land, prevent erosion, extract toxic substances from the soil and keep water in the soil.
Make impact & share in the profit
Investing in bamboo in Europe requires the biggest financial effort in the beginning. But since bamboo only has to be planted once for the next 60 to 100 years, it offers attractive long-term returns. The demand for european bamboo is growing exponentially. Our future demand for bamboo already exceeds the current supply.
After planting, stable revenues can be expected from year 7.
Investments are needed mainly to acquire land, plant material and foresee field infrastructure as water facilities, solar panel installations and field & processing machinery.

Bamboo is the fastest-growing type of grass on the planet. As an ideal alternative for hardwood, bamboo grows much faster than trees and yields more wood. Above all, bamboo can be harvested every year, without clearcutting the plant.
Thanks to its unique properties, every part of the bamboo plant can be used. Bamboo absorbs more carbon than trees, regenerates land and keeps water in the soil. When you invest in bamboo, you invest in nature and climate.
The bamboo market is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years. Europe is currently the largest export market for Asian bamboo products. For many applications European grown bamboo is suitable. That’s why investing in bamboo in Europe is a good portfolio diversification.
strong & versatile
Bamboo has more than 10,000 product applications. It has a larger tensile strength than steel and is the ideal raw material for composite materials, while on the other hand, it is used to produce ultra-soft textiles. It’s one of the most versatile renewable commodities and thus a good investment.
