The BaumInvest AG Team

Bauminvest’s concept has convinced me: Here I can apply my competence and experience exactly where I think it makes sense – in a continuous investment in the harmony of nature, economy and social issues. This is pioneering work for the benefit of all.

Antje
Virkus

CEO

“Bauminvest has all the ingredients that make it an exemplary project for present and future companies, always looking for different ways to improve the environment, social well-being and economic competitiveness through innovative forest plantations and the preservation of natural forests. I find the motivation in the constant search for sustainable development and the values that Bauminvest represents are values that last forever and I want to be a part of them.”

Marco
Soto

CEO Subsidary

“By investing in BaumInvest shares, I can consciously pursue ecological and social goals with my money. For me, this is also a building block in maintaining an environment worth living in for my children.”

Florian
Blaicher

Finance and Legal Manager

„Meine Motivation bei BaumInvest zu arbeiten ist der interkulturelle Austausch zwischen Costa Rica und Deutschland, sowie die Tatsache, dass das Projekt soziales und wirtschaftliches Wohlergehen fördert. So konnte ich mich beruflich weiterentwicklen und das Gelernte sowohl innerhalb wie ausserhalb der Organisation einsetzen.“

Rodrigo
Lopez

Finance and Legal Manager Subsidiary

“I am convinced that we have to change the way we do business in order to counteract the destruction of natural habitats, the loss of biodiversity and climate change with all its consequences. For me, BaumInvest is setting a good example in this direction – through forestry that is economically attractive and at the same time achieves a high ecological added value.”

Simon Mader

Organizational Development

“With Bauminvest I have found an employer who shares my attitude: “Eye level and appreciation” are real values here, which extend to all people who deal with BaumInvest. Whether in Costa Rica, or in Freiburg. Whether as shareholder or employee.”

Bastian Wenz

Graphic and web design

“What motivates me is that at the end of the day I can see the fruits of our work: Trees that grow, and which with each year become more and more similar to a natural forest. In addition, the daily work routine is incredibly lively: through teamwork across two continents, through cooperation with various universities and through direct contact with our investors, who actively contribute their ideas.”

Dr. Anna Mohr

Project Management Science & Forest

“It is always exciting to be part of such a motivated and qualified team that has the same vision as I do. For me, BaumInvest is a living example of a sustainable economic path – and I would very much like to see it repeated in similar projects around the world.”

Barbara
Magdalena San Martin

Forestry Coordination

“The main motivation for me to be part of BaumInvest is that I love and am passionate about the social, ecological and economic values of the plantation development approach. As a forestry engineer, I am passionate about plantation management, forest management and BaumInvest gives me the opportunity to contribute to the development of initiatives which mitigate the impact of climate change that will ensure the sustainability of the resource for future generations.”

Pablo
Angulo

Forestry Coordination Subsidiary

“For me, sustainability is one of the solutions to the ecological challenges of the future – and the knowledge of being part of the solution makes me enjoy going to work every day. It’s great to be part of an extraordinary team, all driven by similar motives and fun at work!”

Romana
Hansen M.A.

Administration

“It is extremely gratifying to work in a project where you make a job that you are passionate about and enjoy doing, that offers the opportunity to learn and improve constantly and that also contributes with the ecological well-being and the social improvement, in practice of ethical values and of the hand of a united, committed, professional and enjoyable work team; all that and more is Bauminvest.”

The BaumInvest supervisory board

Gabriele Rück

Chairman of the Supervisory Board

“What do we want? Climate justice! When do we want it? Now!” I can still hear it from the big Fridays for Future demos. At BaumInvest everyone can start right here and now. It’s exactly the kind of projects we need, if we want to make global climate justice happen.

Carolin
Salvamoser

Supervisory board member

“For me, BaumInvest is a model project that creates the future: Not ruthless economic activity with the promise of high returns in the short term, but a responsible, joint and long-term investment in lasting values – in the reforestation of tropical mixed forest that increases biodiversity, binds CO2 and opens up prospects for the local population.”

Ursula
Sydow

Supervisory board member

“The undertaking is stretched to the ceiling – it is looking for new ways along the values of ecology and social responsibility, which are close to my heart. With this very long-term investment, we want to find ways that are sustainable and thus suitable for continuation and takeover. Making money is not an end in itself, but a means to an end. BaumInvest is a promise: commitment and dedication.”

Gudrun
Welsch

Supervisory board member

“To help shape a project and to accompany it as it matures into a public limited company means growth to the power of two to me. When idealism is combined with the desire to build a sustainable company, a special company like BaumInvest can emerge. It is with great pleasure that I will continue to work here.”

Joachim
Koschel

Supervisory board member

“With my commitment to Bauminvest, I would like to encourage further citizens to get involved with their own means in a turnaround and sustainable future in agriculture and forestry.”

Erhard
Schulz

Supervisory board member

„There are not many examples worldwide of financially successful investments in reforestation with an ecological claim and a social approach at the same time – but they do exist, and I believe that it works here too.“

Founder & Partners

“It was important to me to start a project that brings together ecology, social issues and the economy. With BaumInvest this has been ideally achieved. It was a stroke of luck for me that I was able to develop it together with my son Stefan: he in Costa Rica, me here in Germany – and with the support of our great founding investors. We have always adapted to the business in a new way. Today BaumInvest is an example for others.”

Leo
Pröstler

Initiator and consultant

Our project partner in Costa Rica is PuroVerde Paraíso Forestal. The company has various business areas, including forestry. For us it takes care of the care and reforestation of our forests.
