New project ideas

DFE is always on the lookout for new projects and strategic partnerships. You can read more about the possibilities associated with a strategic partnership with DFE at the bottom of this page.

Currently we are working on designing the following projects that could have potential for strategic partnership involvement with your organization:

Strategic partnerships

A strategic partnership with DFE contributes to:

  • Strengthen the social and environmental company profile
  • Support the business and product development including securing responsible product sourcing
  • Gain access to professional expertise in international development projects
  • Actively engage the employees in social, educational and environmental development activities
  • Communicating the CSR engagement strategically by gaining access to stories from the field

For more information contact Flemming Sehested, Director fls@remove-this.df-extension.dk or Vibe Jensen, Business Developer vij@remove-this.df-extension.dk 

A strategic partnership with DFE allows companies to integrate their CSR and business profile with DFEs international activities and/or make use of our professional expertise in responsible natural resource management, afforestation, carbon sequestration, FSC® and PEFC certification, GIS etc. DFE also offers professional technical forestry knowledge, experience with organization of farmers, stakeholder involvement, geographical context knowledge and design of interacctive environmental education programs. 

As a partner, DFE contributes to improving the social and environmental elements of the value chain and integrate the 12th Sustainable Development Goal: Responsible Consumption and Production, in the CSR and business profile. One entry point is to improve the value chain of internationally sourced products such as wood, fruits or NTFP to include smallholding farmers in the production units and secure responsible production of the raw materials. Another option is to design and intergrate interactive environmental education of local communities to increase awareness and integrate children and youth in natural resource management.
