Projects that impact Preservation of Habitat and Biodiversity

Whilst Rift Valley’s own tobacco growers are provided with a sustainable supply of solid fuel for curing their crop, we recognize the devastating effect that some growing has on local forest cover.

Northern Tobacco therefore contributes over $1m annually to the Sustainable Afforestation Association, who in turn have an established program to plant 12 million trees per annum specifically for fuelwood for tobacco growers.
