Metis helps protect the Amazon Rainforest

At Metis, sustainability isn’t just a buzzword – It’s the guiding principle behind our every action.  We’re proud to leverage our business as a positive force in the fight against climate change, not only for our local community but also for global initiatives like the preservation of the Amazon Rainforest.

Earlier this year, we lent our support to Rainforest Trust UK and their partner, Centro para el Desarrollo del Indígena Amazónico (CEDIA), in a shared mission to protect the Amazon Rainforest in Peru. So far, Rainforest Trust and CEDIA have protected over 14 million acres through numerous large-scale projects. Metis’s contribution has played a significant part in protecting an additional 3.8 million acres.

For a deeper understanding of the landscape we are helping to preserve, watch the Rainforest Trust’s 4-minute mini-documentary below. This film introduces some of the communities leading the way in this vital work and clearly illustrates how a community-centred approach is a highly successful method for preventing fires and combating climate change. We hope you find it inspiring, as you join us in our commitment to making a positive impact on our planet.
