Sustainable Development

Sustainable development

One of the main factors driving environmental degradation is the outdated and incorrect vision of natural resources being unlimited and inexhaustible. Therefore, the promotion and implementation of sustainable development is one of our main lines of action. That is, the use and management of natural resources at rates, intensities and through practices that allow their recovery and guarantee their long-term permanence, as well as generating environmental, social and economic benefits.

… Sustainable development meets the needs of the present, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

Silvopastoral systems
These systems recover the environmental health of pastures.
Converting traditional livestock systems to silvopastoral ones consists of improving land management.
Forest area conservation and management.
Agroforestry systems are a sustainable alternative to intensive agriculture.
Honey production represents a strategic economic activity.
Beekeeping is an easy activity to integrate into other models of sustainable production.
Sustainable “backyards”
Our projects aim to activate production and sustainable use of these “backyard” areas of rural households.
Sustainable backyard plots generate economic, health and social benefits, as well as improving the natural environment.


Testimonial by Andrés Montero, cattle rancher from the Los Tuxtlas Biosphere Reserve, in Veracruz, Mexico, who converted his family ranch from the local traditional livestock practices to a silvopastoral system with productive diversification. This was part of the Gulf of Mexico Coastal Plain Environmental Restoration project, implemented by Espacios Naturales y Desarrollo Sustentable AC, with financial support of Petróleos Mexicanos.
