By supporting āluān you support conservation of the Bangkaru & Simeulue Islands through sustainable business & direct conservation via our sibling organisation the Ecosystem Impact Foundation. This includes critical ranger patrols to ensure that turtle nests and birds stay safe from poachers and plastic pollution.
Three years ago we acted on our vision to grow a business that provides real practical solutions to the global climate and biodiversity crisis.
A sustainable coconut business, āluān is a rare, viable alternative to the mainstream industrial production model which is the main cause of deforestation in this part of the world.
The Bangkaru & Simeulue Islands of Indonesia have global importance for their biodiversity, intact primary rainforest and ecosystem services which support millions of people. They offer the last refuge and nesting sites for endangered sea turtles which nest 365 days of the year. These islands sit alongside the Leuser Ecosystem, the last place where tigers, rhinos, elephants and orang-utans coexist.
Our vision is to transform agricultural supply chains to serve nature and people, first in Bangkaru & Simeulue Islands and then into buffer zones of the Leuser Ecosystem. We run direct conservation programmes through our Ecosystem Impact Foundation.
Our world needs new solutions. And that requires us to breathe deeper and take some risks as we pivot to a new way of doing things. Led from our hearts. With the collective in mind, not our siloed way of doing things.
Initially it feels strange and uncomfortable and takes a bit more hard work, but then it becomes the new norm.
This is an investment to support an ambitious business that is positively transforming the Bangkaru and Simeulue Islands alongside others - a wild part of the planet with global significance.
Thanks for making this possible.
