Floravida Institute’s Projects are part of VBIO, Brazilian startup launched during COP 13 in Mexico

On December 5th 2016, as part of an event at the COP 13 (13th Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity) in Cancun, the VBIO – an online platform of socio-environmental projects – was launched with the aim of supporting companies that need to comply with the new law on the use of natural ingredients from Brazilian biodiversity. The projects inserted in the VBIO are divided in four main areas: environmental projects, knowledge valorization, community development and technology transfer”.

Among the VBIO projects eligible for support are projects already developed by Floravida Institute within the Ethical Use of Biodiversity Program, A Escola vai a Mata and Centrofauna, which are focused on conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity and local development.

Floravida is a private, nonprofit, civil association focused on socioenvironmental issues founded by Centroflora Group in 2002. The Institute’s mission is to contribute to the socioenvironmental transformation of communities involved in its initiatives, promoting education in defense of life.
