Forests are the lifeblood of our planet, encompassing a huge array of ecosystems that support an incredible diversity of life.

Forests are home to over 80% of terrestrial biodiversity, including 80% of amphibians, 75% of birds, and 68% of mammals. Deforestation could lead to the loss of up to 100 species a day, making the prevention of biodiversity loss heavily reliant on stopping forest loss.


Forests play a crucial role in stabilizing the climate by regulating ecosystems, protecting biodiversity, participating in the carbon cycle, supporting livelihoods, and fostering sustainable growth.

Green Future in action


Regeneration and sustainability are at the core of ACIEN’s mission. We are focussed on creating the greatest positive impact at every stage of our process, carefully considering the environmental and social implications of our designs.

Recognising the urgent need to prevent deforestation and drive positive change, we have launched a tree-planting initiative. For every product we sell, we plant a tree, contributing directly to reforestation efforts and supporting the health of our planet.

Protect Forests, Preserve Our Future


Despite covering approximately 30% of the world's land surface, forests are disappearing at an alarming rate. Between 2015 and 2020, deforestation led to an annual loss of 4.4 million hectares of forest in Africa.

This trend, driven by livestock grazing, urbanisation, and farming, not only halts forests' ability to capture carbon dioxide but also exacerbates climate change by releasing the carbon stored in trees.


At ACIEN we are making significant effort in our commitment to sustainability by partnering with Tree-Nation, an environmental organisation dedicated to combating climate change through global reforestation and afforestation projects.

With over 90 planting projects across 33 countries, Tree-Nation collaborates with local communities to enhance biodiversity, support sustainable development, and promote ecological balance.

Our focus is on the preservation of the Mt. Elgon Ecosystem in Uganda.

Uganda has lost 918,000 hectares (12%) of its tree cover since 2001. The Mbale Trees Programme, based in the Mount Elgon region of Eastern Uganda, supports local farmers in growing trees and promotes sustainable livelihoods. To date, this agroforestry program has planted 21 million trees, reaching 54,000 beneficiaries. By 2025, 25 million trees will be planted.

At ACIEN we are proud to be part of this initiative, promoting reforestation and taking a positive step towards a brighter future.
