Catalyst Partnerships

For companies that want to play a conscious leadership role in the restoration revolution

Going Deeper for Greater Impact

Increasingly we are finding that once our Trees for Transaction partners witness the social impact and positive reaction of their networks, they want to do more to effect greater change. The ‘more’ depends upon their creativity and audacity, but often originates from a desire to include others within their industry to further the behaviour change required to bring about lasting change.

A Catalyst Partnership

This is an experimental, co-creative and impact-based partnership with TreeSisters that is unique to you. It’s where we explore together how to achieve the maximum impact both socially and ecologically that you can facilitate on every level of your social systems both up and down stream. It is both generative and generous.

This includes, but goes beyond trees embedded in products and services, to explore the act of invitation and engagement in shared ecological goals. This can include co-campaigning, sector collaborations, using trees as a unifier of international organisations and where the restorative actions of staff are potentially as important as distributor or customer. 

We bring a wealth of Feminine Nature-Based Leadership experience through a number of proven models and techniques which can be tailored to meet the needs of your unique organisation within a co-created campaign.

Stepping in as a Catalyst Partner means:

  • The development and implementation of a co-created campaign that draws on the creativity and activism of your network - further growing the social change engine that delivers more reforestation through grassroots education and involvement
  • Inviting the active participation of your whole business ecosystem into a movement that sees them all as part of the solution - potentially supporting them to embed monthly forest restoration into their lives
  • Social change and feminine empowerment programs to assist the transition from business as usual to activism and co-creative action

Embedding ecological restoration into every financial transaction and business model will become the new norm when we make it happen together. Thank you!

Who will we partner with?

These are our deepest partnerships. They need to be a total match of values, a joy to work together and a no brainer when it comes to what you already do in the world. You are already either well on your journey towards sustainability, or fully committed to the journey just started. You want long term, socially scalable, measurable ecological impact and are prepared to invest in marketing, social media or organisational time to make it happen.

The Catalyst Commitment:

Given that our funds employ critically poor villagers in multiple countries to become forest restorers and protectors, it is crucial that external corporate relationships are long-term so that our funding is also dependable for those reliant on us for their livelihoods. You may support whole villages, and literally transform their socio-economic reality, whilst helping them restore their environment.

The minimum donation for Catalysts is $30K / £30K per year for 3 years.
