Soil Heroes is proud to announce that BvdV is one of our commercial partners to jointly make meaningful impact and mitigate climate change by regenerating soils. BvdV is the abbreviation of Bruggink & Van der Velden, the surnames of two lawyers with a novel vision on building a legal company. BvdV started a model, different from the traditional partner model, built on the belief that staff can be more motivated by ownership, trust, transparency, and democracy. As Soil Heroes, we are not only proud to have it as our legal partner but to also start restoring nature on farmlands together.
"Soil Heroes helps us to generate positive environmental impact in a meaningful way"
BvdV recently decided that next to all its efforts in building a socially conscious company, it wanted to explore how, as a legal and tax firm, it could contribute to an environmentally sustainable world. Although, as a service-based legal and tax firm, its environmental footprint is of a very different scale compared with producing companies, it would like to contribute to a healthy environment in a meaningful way. BvdV was inspired by the impact regenerative agriculture can have in sequestering carbon in our soils, improving biodiversity, and saving water. "Although, we don't interact nor influence the way farmers manage their lands as a legal and tax firm, as human beings we do interact with the farming and food system on a daily basis. Finding such a tangible and meaningful way to contribute to tackling climate change and biodiversity loss feels like a great first step in our journey to support a sustainable environment," say Falco Houwer and co-founder Sjoerd Van der Velden. BvdV has partnered with Soil Heroes to support Klompe Landbouw, as well as being its legal advisor, to implement regenerative farming practices in more plots of the farm.
