Since its creation in 2010, Man&Nature has managed to bring together and mobilize companies by involving them on field projects. By increasing their awareness about issues surrounding natural ingredients chains improvement (sustainability, traceability, fairness), Man&Nature is convincing them to participate in biodiversity conservation and improvement of local communities living conditions.


Back in 2010, support from Maisons du Monde allowed Man&Nature to start its activities, based on the "kick start project" principle : the company supports the first year of a selected project and Man&Nature generates interest from other contributors to ensure further funding.

In parallel to financial support to Man&Nature, substantive work has been carried out by Maisons du Monde to improve supply chains and better control the environmental impact of its activities.

Each year, company's employees are taking part in "solidarity leaves" on projects sites supported by Man&Nature (Madagascar, Peru, Nepal, Senegal, Nicaragua, Zambia, etc.).
