Rowing towards sustainability

Ubá

We support the implementation and conservation of healthy forest ecosystems, oceans and

regenerative agricultural practices.  

It's all about nature-based solutions implemented through virtuous partnerships between motivated people. 

WHY

The Institute was created to catalyze sustainability in its broad sense, considering environmental, economic and social impacts of our actions. We focus on transparent social mobilization climate-friendly nature-based solutions.

We value standing forests, trees, oceans and agricultural systems whilst recognizing the importance of all beings for nature and people.

‘Ubá’ is a Tupi-guarani word for a boat carved on a single tree trunk, and it also means

‘to move forward’.
