By becoming signatory of the manifesto Osons Demain, OLVEA has once again made a commitment in favour of the environment and of the biodiversity. This manifesto, signed by numerous business managers, was created following the alert raised by 15.000 scientists about the climatic disorder.
OLVEA Burkina Faso became a UEBT member in march 2013, and commits to the principles of Ethical BioTrade: ensuring that sourcing practices promote the conservation of biodiversity, respect traditional knowledge and assure the equitable sharing of benefits all along the supply chain.
OLVEA has been working for women’s empowerment for years whether it be in france or africa, and especially in OLVEA’s sustainable Shea supply chain in Burkina Faso. We are working with more than 21.000 women producers of Shea nuts, which provides them with an additional source of income, some economic independance and sustainable livelihoods.
