Based on our goal, one of the stated ambitions is to systematically purchase a considerable area of land and convert it into forest. In this way, pieces of forest are returned to nature in Belgium and the Netherlands.

Both in Belgium and the Netherlands, we buy up suitable land and plant a new forest,” explains CEO Jo Maes. “In doing so, we combat the climate crisis and at the same time create new and lasting local nature. We also want to be CO2 neutral by 2030. The planting of an Ordina forest is an important pillar in this.
