ABOUT GREEN RESOURCES
Green Resources is Africa’s largest private forestation company. We have 12,000 ha forest and have planted close to 5,000 ha new forest in 2008 in Mozambique, Tanzania, Sudan and Uganda. The oldest forests are FSC certified. An integral part of the company activities is to plant trees to generate carbon offsets, and conserve existing forest.
Green Resources has a fast growing industrial operation focusing on transmission poles and sawmilling, generating USD 10 million of revenues in 2008 and 20% EBITDA margin, with revenues growing more than 50% per year for the last three years. We expect to continue to grow revenues at more than 50% pa, and increase the annual rate of planting.
Green Resources is a privately owned Norwegian company that has invested USD 40 million of equity since the establishment in 1995, and recently raised USD 30 million of new equity and have another USD 30 million of committed loans.
Green Resources was approved as partner with the Norwegian government institution called Fredskorpset in 2009. The first round of exchange between Norway and Tanzania/Mozambique with four employees, and between Tanzania, Uganda and Mozambique with four employees is going towards the end. Our experience is very positive, and we are now working on the application for the second phase of exchange. Below is an abstract on the description of the “north-south program”. The “south-south program” is very similar except it does not involve exchange with Norway.
Fredskorpset North-South Programme is one of four programme lines in Fredskorpset in which companies in Norway and in the South exchange employees or members between the ages of 22 and 35. The exchanges enable people with similar professional backgrounds or interests to learn from one another and contribute to competency building in the company. Companies in Norway and in the South form a partnership, which, with funding from Fredskorpset, exchanges personnel and expertise within the same sector or line of work. It is the partnership that sets the goals for the exchange and assumes responsibility for planning and implementation of the Fredskorpset project. The partnership recruits, sends and receives the participants. Fredskorpset assists in project development as well as quality control. It funds the project wholly or in part, and coordinates training and follow-up activities for participants in conjunction with the partnership. Fredskorpset invites the partners to participate actively in its international network. For the participant, an exchange project subsidised by Fredskorpset Primary Programme will last for a total of at least 12 months: this involves preparatory work (one month), the posting abroad (10-12 months) and follow-up activities (one month).
