Engaging stakeholders to build value chains that benefit people and nature.

  • Sustainable certifications have limited efficacy to transform production systems and meet a growing consumer demand for products that not only do no harm, but boast positive impacts to the environment and community. To that end, we ensure that value chains are not only adapted to their local reality, but are useful and sustainable.
  • Our conviction in our mission: the regeneration of biodiversity will be key to the future of the industry. This direction change relies on a collective capacity to meet individual needs while attending to common goods.

Trained in business, social sciences and change management, Julien Chupin has 17 years of experience with private, public, NGOS and research centres accros Europe and Africa.
