Convinced that to be honored in a sustainable and unconditional way, our mission must be translated into a series of concrete commitments, we drafted the Charter. The text establishes the multifunctionality of forests as a cardinal principle of each reforestation project or assisted natural regeneration led by Reforest'Action. It applies as much to the organization itself as to all its partners who pledge to respect its terms in the context of their joint activities.

1) Preserving the multifunctionality of the forest

We declare our commitment to the multifunctional character of the forest, whose plurality of uses and benefits, environmental, human and economic, harmoniously meets the challenges of sustainable development.

2) Promoting the forest as a major component of biodiversity

We recognize that trees and forests, as major components of biodiversity,  themselves dependent on many other wildlife and floral components, provide a set of ecosystem services essential for the activity and well-being of man.

3) Serving the public interest

We affirm that, whatever the nature -whether public, community or private- of the lands welcoming our plantations, each project serves the public interest beyond the potential economic gains that  the owners or their assignees  might ultimately make from the sale of timber and non-timber trees planted.

4) Promoting the economic role of the forest

We call to mind the economic role of a sustainably-managed forest as a pool of local jobs and energy transition lever via reasoned biomass production and eco-construction in particular.

5) Supporting the diversification of species

We are committed to primarily support multi-species planting projects tailored to the local ecosystem.

6) Promoting sustainable methods

In planting and assisted natural regeneration operations, we strive to promote the use of methods and products that respect local ecosystems over the long term.

7) Supporting sustainable forests

We guarantee to plant and support the regeneration of forests under sustainable management conducted by qualified professionals.

8) Ensuring the proper development of plantations

We strive to ensure access to planting and regeneration areas in respect of the protective devices installed  in situ which  secure their proper development.

9) Sensitizing our stakeholders and the general public

We are committed to educate our stakeholders and the general public to the multiple uses of the forest by inviting them especially to discover the recreational benefits and observe the biodiversity to better preserve it over time.

10) Advancing our practices

We are committed to follow the evolution of techniques and tools used for reforestation in order to continuously improve our own methods in an increasingly effective logic of forest biodiversity protection.
