The Companies in the Better Globe Group:

Better Globe Forestry Ltd. - Kenya

This forestry company is the mother company of all our forest companies and is the company doing the planning, physical plantation, hiring people and having the executive responsibility of planting the trees and seeing to that all the studies like Environmental Impact Assessment and Feasibility studies are done in a proper way. Better Globe Forestry has approximately 100,000 ha land available with 3 tree plantations in Kiambere, Nyongoro and Sosoma in Kenya so far and also runs a 45 acres test and training farm in Kibwesi in Kenya for trees and agriculture projects. This mother company has also implemented a quality management system for environment in accordance with the ISO 14001 standard.

The company work close with the Government and communities wherever we have a tree plantation and provide people with jobs, water, building schools and agricultural help through Microfinance, so they can become self-sustainable.

Mukau Wood Ltd. - Kenya

This company will grow a type of mahogany tree called Mukau (Melia Volkensii) on 30.000 Ha land in Kenya. The tree is fast growing and has approx. 50 cm diameter bole already after 18-20 years. The structure of the wood is beautiful and the quality is similar to other known mahogany or teak trees. A Feasibility study has also been made for this project, which shows very positive profitability. We have for more than 5 years worked on "In Vitro" production of Mukau in a Belgian Laboratory and got the first "protocol" to clone these trees at the end of 2011. The Mukau tree is to be made into furniture and floor tiles etc. when the trees are fully-grown.

Better Globe AS – Norway

This sales company is incorporated in Norway as a marketing company that sells trees for profit to people all over the world. Better Globe is the first company in the world with this unique system that we have called:

“A Charity System that Pays an Interest on the Donations.”

This means that anyone who buys a tree for €17 will get €191 back in profit over 20 years. This way everybody can “afford” to buy trees, because the more you do this the more money you will get back. Moreover, it is good for the environment and gives employment to poor farmers in Africa.

Trees4Expenses AS – Norway

Trees4Expenses transforms your expenses into savings, or with other words; neutralizes all your expenses in a way that nobody has been able to do before. Provided you spend 7.5% in addition to your expenses to purchase Mahogany trees, you get these tree expenses back in year 10 and the rest of your expenses back as cash in year 17. In a way, we can say the cost of the trees you buy, will be your neutralizing fee. Since trees grow in value as they grow bigger, they can neutralize all of your expenses, including the cost of the trees. The first thinning of the Mahogany trees in year 10 will make enough money to cover the purchase cost of your trees. In year 17, the value of the trees is enough to cover all the expenses you wanted to neutralize.

Better Mangos Ltd. – Kenya

This company will grow a type of mangos called “Apple mangos.” We have 5000 ha land in South Nyongoro for planting mango trees the coming years. We already have 5 years experience with 1,500 Apple mango trees in our Mukuyu farm in Kibwezi in Kenya. Mangos have a huge market both in Kenya and for export.

Better Globe Forestry Ltd. - Uganda

This forestry company is incorporated in Uganda and will start the tree planting process later. The company intends to start massive tree planting on dry land in the North-East of Uganda in the years to come.

Integrity First Ltd. - Uganda

This company is publishing the Book "Put Integrity First" with the subtitle "If you want success in Africa", by our Chairman Rino Solberg. By getting this book to the young people in Africa they will hopefully learn and be motivated to use Integrity to become successful. We believe this will be a great help in fighting corruption in Africa, by starting with the young people and think long term. This book is given free as an e-book to all students in schools and universities in Africa.
