Dutch Bamboo is a non-profit public benefit organization helping to shape a net zero carbon economy.

How do we work?

Our Mission

Partnering with Local Communities

  • Increase Biodiversity

  • Research + Education = Innovation

  • Air purification and increased oxygen output

  • Erosion Control

  • Cultivation for the Nature Tech Sector

  • Promote Food Security + Rural Livelihoods

By nurturing relationships with likeminded organizations and private individuals, we're able to unlock new sources of capital and scale up our work far beyond what traditional funding can do alone.

We will provide an unconventional mitigation solution for Carbon Dioxide removal as a new approach in EU climate policy, with Dutch Bamboo Agroforestry plantations.

What We Will Achieve

Bamboo creates a rapidly renewable carbon sink solution to help reverse climate change faster and with a higher rate of carbon dioxide (CO2) capture than when compared to many tree species. Within the new nature economy, bamboo is a viable opportunity as part of the NatureTech sector in harvesting and refining natural raw materials. We have an urgent need to collectively drawdown our carbon emissions worldwide, whilst we are faced with the challenges of increased materialism and resource consumption. To make a lasting impact, we know that we must actively engage and include the communities we are seeking to help. We are continually learning and growing in how we show up as an authentic, ethical partner.

  • Managed Bamboo based Agroforestry Plantations

  • Land + Soil Restoration & Nitrogen Fixing

  • Carbon Trading Pilot through ONCRA

  • Open Natural Carbon Removal Accounting.

The Dutch Bamboo Foundation is a Non-Profit Public Benefit Organization (PBO) planting bamboo as a natural carbon solution to restore the land, increase biodiversity, public outreach & most importantly to clean the air.
