Environmental Sustainability

 

Kenya’s coastal forests are of critical importance to the country as they support communities by providing much needed ecosystems goods and services including fuelwood, herbs, air purification, water, ecotourism, sports and recreation.

These coastal forests are highly fragmented and under immense threat due to population pressure leading to unsustainable practices like charcoal burning, pollution among others.

In response to the above, Bamburi continues to grow and manage forest plantations and ecosystems in both rehabilitated quarries and reserve lands (which occupy over 700 hectares) for sustainable utilization, protection and conservation in support of environmental sustainability as a critical component in addressing livelihood concerns for socio-economic development.

We continue to spearhead an urgent culture of tree growing and forest protection among Kenyan coastal communities to enable the conservation of globally threatened indigenous varieties of flora and fauna for ecosystems goods and services and sustainable livelihoods.
