Bridging medical and forestry research for effective nature-based initiatives
Science tells us that spending time in green areas improves our mental, physical, and social performances. Green Care is an emerging concept referring to the range of activities that promotes physical and mental health and well-being through contact with nature. We develop nature-based solutions and social agriculture activities and support our partners to find the right investment for them. Examples of investments are the creation and improvement of areas for forest bathing, recreational paths, food forests and the improvement of accessibility of green areas for disable people and elder population.

Become Climate Positive and generate positive impacts on the environment
We help our partners to choose, realize and manage responsible investments and innovative solutions to fight the climate crisis. Thanks to our MARC method (Measure, Avoid, Risk, Capture & Communicate) a scientifically and effective approach, we support companies and organisations that want to develop innovative solutions to reduce their climate impact or that aim to become a Climate Positive by capturing more CO2 than they emit. We follow our partners at all stages: from the definition of the climate plan until the quality certifications. We identify, evaluate, and manage ideal sites to create new conservation forests, protect existing forests and improve rivers and water basins.

Capture & Communicate

One of the special features of the MARC approach is its comprehensiveness. On the one hand, our team supports forest managers in their efforts to achieve the standards of the Forest Stewardship Council®, whose FSC® Ecosystem Services procedure is fundamental to scientifically calculate the positive impacts of forests. On the other hand, Etifor also offers its partners the opportunity to join the WOWnature community: our platform that connects landowners, citizens and private companies who want to support projects to grow new trees or protect existing forest areas.
