Driven by a shared love for nature, 30 years ago Jacques and his father Yves Rocher created the Yves Rocher Foundation, now recognised as being of public interest. We have been on the ground working alongside local communities all over the world to preserve nature ever since. Time is of the essence.
The equivalent of 800 football pitches of forest disappears every hour. Nearly 420 million hectares of forest have been wiped off the face of the earth since 1990…
The power of trees and collective action are two key solutions to tackling climate change and biodiversity erosion.
This is why with our Plant For Life programme and the unwavering support of our sponsor Yves Rocher, we are working alongside 48 partner NGOs worldwide. Together, we have already planted more than 120 million trees with the aim of restoring animal and plant biodiversity, creating jobs and hoping for a better future.
Here you will find some examples of our projects around the world: France, Togo, the Netherlands and Italy.
In 11 years, 5 million trees have been planted in France with the support of 18,000 people, including Yves Rocher employees who came to lend a hand. Today, faced with the emergency, we have decided to join forces by creating the Fonds pour l’Arbre, which brings together more patrons to together operate a change of scale and deploy ever more hedges in France.
