The Brazilian Biodiversity Showcase. 

Get to know who we are and what we do.

VBIO is a bioeconomy platform that helps organizations in capturing and allocating resources for Brazilian biodiversity projects. 

In our showcase, we display a specialized curation to ensure that the most inspiring projects in Brazil receive Corporate Social Responsibility resources and legal compliance from supporters around the world.

How does VBIO work?

By bringing together sponsoring companies and proposing institutions, we take the most inspiring projects off the ground and make them happen. 

This partnership enhances quality of life for traditional communities, through training people and developing conservation actions for fauna and flora species and Brazilian natural resources. Our curation also enables sponsoring companies to comply with legal obligations. 

And for your assurance, we periodically monitor the execution and accountability of the project. Additionally, we collaborate to communicate the partnership on social networks and events.
