Over the years N&I became specialised in the design, development and implementation of large scale projects in the Agricultural, Forest and Nature sector.
In the early days (1995-2010) these projects were built around FSC certification, both for forests and Chain Of Custody companies. N&I was also the founder of FSC the Netherlands. These projects were funded by organisations like WWF, Doen, ICCO and IUCN. We also carried out large projects for the Dutch CBI (part of RVO, Dutch government). These projects were aiming at capacity building with exporters in developing countries (so called CBI-Export Coaching Projects)(2002-2015). In later stages (2008-2013) we were also focusing on Carbon certification projects (VCS/CCBS/CDM). This was mostly with investors.
In recent years we realized that all of the above (development work, sustainability certification, carbon/climate actions and commercial activities) can only be successful if they are ALL integrated into every single project. This was how our Integrated Land Use idea (ILU, or our popular name LAND+) was developed. Together with our sister company, the Forest Service Group, this is now being tested around the world.
In 2016 N&I changed its slogan into: Project development for Forest and Nature management & Developmentwork.
Currently N&I is mainly developing EU Life projects under the Climate Change calls.
All N&I services are available as separate services or in one package where a project is designed (consortium formed), written & submitted and implemented. Ask for details and offers for each option.
