The mission of the World Bamboo Organization is to promote and support the use of bamboo as a sustainable and alternative natural resource through the development of partnerships and alliances, and the creation of mechanisms for global communication, information exchange, and technology transfer.
Bamboo is our daily endeavor. We welcome corporate partnerships that care about the potential of bamboo in improving the Earth's environment, recycling CO2, building sustainable homes, providing nourishing food, and improving rural economies. We embrace the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals, and are a member of the United Nations Global Compact. We currently network with over 4,000 members who receive our electronic newsletter, and maintain an active presence over several social media.
At World Bamboo, we strive to provide the realities, the truth and the potentials of bamboo. We understand the complexities of bamboo as a renewable resource. While promoting the potential sustainability of bamboo, we also acknowledge “inconvenient truths” such as the challenge of certifying best management practices, chain of custody, and workers safety in the manufacturing of bamboo products, etc. These are some of the reasons why WBO is committed to seeing that bamboo gets the chance it deserves. Companies in the business of bamboo who are sourcing their material from other countries need to know the realities and the truths of how bamboo grows, how it is harvested, who owns the bamboo, how it is processed. Our aim is to assist companies and consumers in any way we can. This way bamboo can deliver truly sustainable solutions.
