This initiative was born in 2018, when we began to develop a project that would allow us to capture greenhouse gases through reforestation, build positive relationships with the public sector in Ecuador, recuperate water sources and protect the endemic flora and fauna of the Santo Domingo de los Tsachilas region.
The Armadillo Bio-corridor has managed to include all of these objectives whilst at the same time setting a visible example of leadership in encouraging other similar initiatives in the region.
The project will have its own Interpretation and Education centre, from which any new public, private or civil initiative will be monitored and supported.
Through this project all of the brands associated with ‘Go Planet’ will be registered in the United Nations Global Pact for Climate Change.
