As in many places around the world, people in Panama are moving from the countryside to the cities. In rural areas, jobs that offer both reasonable working conditions as well as social security are extremely scarce. We offer our employees good working and living conditions, creating stable and fair jobs for men and women alike. We pay salaries above the minimum wage, offer food vouchers, social insurance and additional private health insurance, as well as training and development opportunities such as helping workers acquire school-equivalency certifications.

Deforestation is one of the biggest components of climate change, accounting for about 20% of greenhouse gas emissions globally. For this reason, re-greening the planet will be just as important a component of stopping climate change as cuts to fossil fuel consumption. Our forests extract CO2 from the atmosphere and capture it within the trees: 14 tons per hectare, annually. The carbon impact of purchasing one share in The Generation Forest is about equivalent to changing to a vegetarian diet. Just 10 shares are enough to offset a person’s entire lifetime carbon emissions.
