Aidenvironment, as small as it is in terms of staff, is proud to have had a considerable impact in recent years, a few examples:
- We contributed to a significant decline in threats to deforestation and peatlands by palm oil expansion, through our involvement in NDPE policies by major palm oil companies in Indonesia and Malaysia
- By undertaking a series of evaluations, we have contributed to improved understanding within Fairtrade of how positive effects on small producers can be improved and effectively monitored, as a basis of a process of continuous improvement
- We contributed to the design and implementation of a research program that aims to merge scientific and civil society understanding of conflict and cooperation in the management of natural resources.
- We significantly contributed to improved understanding among key players from private, public and civil society sectors, of how sector transformation towards more sustainable supply chains can be achieved
- We contributed to improved access and use of WASH services in several countries because of the DWA program. The DWA has been implemented during the last 5 years and is being finalized in December 2015. A decision on possible exit funding for the DWA – Dutch Wash Alliance – is still pending.
Aidenvironment regularly explores new and less orthodox fields of work. As forerunners, our consulting and research in these areas is groundbreaking. Our incubating work provides us with the necessary know-how to effectively up-scale smart, small-scale initiatives.
Working for internationally operating clients, we perform 50 field assignments a year. Our fieldwork covers the principal commodity developing and producing markets in West and East Africa, Latin America and Southeast Asia, the latter served by our Indonesian branch Aidenvironment Asia.
