About Pur Projet

PUR Projet is a social business that assists companies in the integration of social and environmental innovations into the heart of their business and corporate activities. To do this, PUR Projet helps these businesses to regenerate, revitalize and preserve the ecosystems upon which they depend. This approach is called "Insetting." PUR Projet designs integrated Insetting programs and projects that incorporate social, economic and environmental compliance and innovation into all types of supply chains, from the farm to final consumer. The objective is to reduce risks and encourage well-managed supply chains. They then work on additional initiatives to strengthen the communities within which we work. Trees and agroforestry are at the heart of PUR Projet activities, as they provide unrivalled ecosystem service benefits. By planting and protecting as many trees as possible, PUR Projet aims to maximize benefits for all stakeholders. By providing the capacity to measure and value the associated ecosystem benefits, PUR is able to prove that trees are the best investment one can make to regenerate our ecosystems and support sustainable livelihood strategies for local communities.

By becoming a B Corp, PUR Projet wants to contribute to the development of a global network that promotes a holistic and transformative approach to corporate resource management. Together with other B Corps, we want to build on our experience and extensive network to maximize the credibility and understanding of sustainable business practices. Further, PUR Projet wants to support the reconciliation of human activities with the socio-economic and environmental systems upon which we all depend. We want to move society towards Full Circle Sustainability.

The Change We Seek®

PUR Projet seeks to regenerate the Planet's ecosystems globally with Insetting via agroforestry. They are proving, on a daily basis, that engaging businesses in integrated climate action (Insetting) and broader environmental projects is a way to provide strong social, environmental and economic benefits for local stakeholders,and for their business partners. This results in inspiring projects that demonstrate strong social, environmental and economic performance and resilience to demographic, climatic and environmental change.

Insetting is a novel approach to sustainability where businesses invest within their own agricultural supply chains to enhance climate mitigation and adaptation, provide resilient livelihood and economic opportunities to local communities, and enhance ecosystem services that the global community depends upon. All of this comes from the planting of a few trees.
