For 2019, OroVerde is planning to complete redevelopment in the existing project communities. Four new project communities in the Lacandón national park will also be added to the program. The foundation will also place a focus on reforesting water catchment areas and educating on water and forests in Guatemala. Other objectives include summarizing best practice examples and lessons learned in a “Biofersa” manual, which will then be introduced locally.
Formel D has sponsored OroVerde for several years. In 2018, each employee celebrating an anniversary automatically donated ten or 25 trees for Guatemala’s rainforest. The Group also contributed an additional 250 rainforest trees as part of its 25th anniversary year of 2018 for a total of 725 trees.
