and Governance
Our team is made up of professionals who are proactive and willing to learn continuously on the topics of carbon markets, forest conservation and restoration, climate change, and sustainability.

To make environmental conservation financially viable, the vision of the founders of Biofílica Ambipar was to develop a company that makes forests and their environmental services assets to be traded in the market.

Our shareholders have invested in the development of a unique business model that brings a feasible alternative to valorize native forests.
