Restoring Declining Forests and Preserving Ecosystems

Environmental activities in the Americas to preserve the richness of nature for the future

Forests are irreplaceable. They absorb the carbon dioxide (CO2) we emit in our daily lives to reduce global warming, prevent landslides and floods, and purify water. These irreplaceable forests are rapidly disappearing due to various causes such as logging, land clearance, forest fires, and climate change.
Brother International Corporation (U.S.A.), together with Brother International Corporation (Canada) and Brother Group companies in Central and South America (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, Peru), is working together to conserve the environment with the Arbor Day Foundation, a forest conservation organization.

Tropical rainforest conservation support | Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, and Peru

Brother Group companies in Latin America (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico, and Peru) contribute to the protection of tropical rainforests in Latin America through the Rainforest Rescue Program of the Arbor Day Foundation, a forest conservation organization. Rainforests are a treasure trove of life, and it is estimated that they are home to about half of all known species. This makes the conservation of tropical rainforests crucial to the preservation of biodiversity.
