The Bio-Foundation promotes environmentally-friendly agriculture as well as ecological consumer patterns. This is to be achieved through initiatives of its own or by supporting existing institutions. The fundament of the foundation’s work is the conviction that the basis for all sustainable development is innovation and the independent, responsible actions of each individual involved.
In the last 25 years it was possible to realize numerous projects and to give innovative impetus to sustainable development in different sectors. The foundation was actively involved in development in the fields of organic farming, environmental awareness, the maintenance of biodiversity, social accountability and fair trade. A large part of the work is with small to middle-sized farms, especially with the smallholder farmers of developing countries.
