OUR COMMITMENTS


Eurobois is committed to Plantons pour l'Avenir! 

Who are they? 


Created in 2014 by the professional organizations of the forestry and wood industry, the Fund supports more than 316 reforestation projects throughout the country, representing 2.3 million trees planted and 1,880 hectares reforested as part of the sustainable management and adaptation of our forests to climate change. 


Thanks to the donations of its sponsors, Plantons pour l'Avenir provides a concrete response to the challenges of reforestation in France through its programs:
- Planting: by encouraging sustainable and dynamic forest management that maintains a balance between production, biodiversity and respect for users (recreational function). 
- Raising awareness: by working to raise the awareness of all generations on the essential role of the forest and the uses of wood. 
- Innovate: by supporting the development of reforestation techniques and practices adapted to the changing climate.

Thanks to its action for forests, Plantons pour l'Avenir contributes to the preservation of our forests and to the transition towards carbon neutrality while supporting an economic sector of the future.
