EFCO is a non-profit association which aims to transfer swiss forestry, wood processing, energy recovery and agriculture knowledge and technologies to denseley wooded regions worldwide.
EFCO programs aim to create value for local communities. We do this in many ways, including working exclusively with small-holder farmers and promoting forest-related businesses.
EFCO projects respect the resilience and viability of local ecosystems and actively develop the ecological awareness of local communities. We actively support the UN’s recently declared Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We foster know-how creation and exchange between practitioners and experts. Our ultimate goal is to establish cultivation techniques with an ecological and cultural surplus to replace unsustainable, monoculture tree plantations.
