Sustainable banana plantations in South America

With various national and international partners, we advised banana plantations in Ecuador and Colombia.

The overall goal of this project was to establish ways for more sustainability in conventional banana production. To achieve this, we looked at around 120 indicators for social and environmental aspects – based on a methodology from the WWF.

Improve soil health on conventional farms with measures of regenerative agriculture.
Some of the indicators
  • Pesticide use
  • Greenhouse gas emissions
  • Reforestation
  • Creation of buffer zones
  • Monitoring of ecosystems and soil
  • Water and waste management
Soil & More Impacts' contribution
  • Preserve soil health
  • Strengthen soil fertility
  • Calculate greenhouse gas emissions
  • Develop measures for reduction of greenhouse gas
  • ongoing monitoring of the measures in dialogue with the farms
