Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
Wong Fleming believes in justice, equality, upholding human rights, and the preservation of the environment. Founded on the idea that diverse voices bring strength, we recognize the importance of listening to those on the frontline to understand the environmental impact of our actions and contribute to building a better future for everyone.
Via our membership of international advisory network IR Global, we are proud to partner with Treesistance by sponsoring the formation of a new group of Indigenous Forest Guardians in the Brazilian Amazon.
Indigenous people protect over 80% of the worlds biodiversity and in the Amazon are the last line of defense against illegal deforestation. We are proud to support this initiative and stand alongside those who defend nature on behalf of us all.
Further announcements will follow in 2024.
Indigenous leader Chief Dadá Borarí is the head of the Treesistance Forest Guardian program and oversees the training of new groups.
Treesistance's mission is to transform attitudes towards climate action and inspire systemic change. The objective is to revolutionize how we interact with the natural world and approach environmental conservation. At the heart of its platform is an "access to justice" model based on the latest criminology research and crime science strategies in partnership with Indigenous leaders.
Their successful blueprint for stopping forest crime and deforestation in the Amazon has been peer-reviewed and featured in the latest UN module on Forest & Fauna (2021). This remarkable model is based on three pillars: the demarcation of territories and land rights claims, the creation of teams of Forest Guardians to protect their territories, and the development of trusted relationships with law enforcement to ensure prompt and effective action is taken.
