Proforest Initiative UK
The Proforest Initiative was set up in 2010 to make our expertise available to sustainability initiatives, government departments, and non-governmental and civil society organisations.
Our donor-funded programmes are delivered through the Proforest Initiative. Some of our current and previous funders include UKAid through the UK Department for International Development (DFID), the Global Environment Facility through WWF US, the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad) and the Moore Foundation.
Through short-term projects, we also support multi-stakeholder sustainability initiatives, such as RSPO, Bonsucro and other civil society organisations.
How is the Proforest Initiative governed?
The Proforest Initiative is registered as a charity with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (charity number 1137523) and is overseen by an independent board of trustees.
