Imagine, the traceability of your products leads your customers to the tropical jungles of the Mekong river and to the Himalayan mountains where Tibet meets Yunnan. Immerged in diverse culture and rich biodiversity, your customers can visit the places and people where your products start from pristine soils, clean air, and where they support the livelihood of local ethnic communities.
Would this add to the sustainability and credibility of your business?
Would your trademark benefit from international research publications lauding your company's involvement in saving the rain forest?
If you are in the food, cosmetics, flower, herbal, and medical business, certifying your products as contributing to biodiversity protection will be an advantage with a competitive edge.
The TianZi Biodiversity Centre is working with German Universities to design land use systems, which are bound to change paradigms: we promote rare agro-biodiversity species, manage complexity, and find alternatives to destructive forms of mono culture.
If all this is in line with your company's business concept - please join us.
The TianZi Team.

Meet our international partners who share our vision:
Land use in Yunnan is largely designed by ethnic minority people from more than 20 distinctly different ethnic communities.
Wherever possible, and mainly in the fertile lowlands, rice fields are forming the landscape.
In the mountains, shifting cultivation is predominant, although it is now gradually given up for increased cash crop production.
Agricultural industry has taken its toll and large mountain areas are under sever environmental stress by destructive ways of growing crops like sugar cane, corn, rubber, pine apple, and even the famous Puer tea.
Yunnan is also rich in traditional herbal medicine, which is one of the agricultural crops in some areas. Although the majority of herbs is still collected in the wild.
TianZi addresses the issues around biodiversity loss by simply saving forests from further destruction and by producing secondary forest products in sustainable forest-like farming systems.
We offer traceability of your products grown with us, and we are prepared to show our ecological farming initiative to your customers. International organic certification is upgraded by a standard certifying that our/your products contribute to the protection of biodiversity.
