Not only do we offer the highest quality bamboo, we have also developed revolutionary products in association with our European and American partners. We believe that our high-tech applications will be the future standard for the international construction market, all grown and made in South America.

Guadua Bamboo is also a strong advocate for sustainable forestry management. We use bamboo forests and plantation lands in a way, and at a rate, that maintains or improves its biodiversity, productivity, regeneration capacity, vitality and their potential to fulfill (now and in the future), relevant ecological, economic and social functions, at local, national, and global levels, which does not cause damage to other ecosystems.

In simpler terms, the concept can be described as the balance between society's increasing demands for forest products and benefits, and the preservation of forest health and diversity. This balance is critical to the survival of forests, and to the prosperity of forest-dependent communities.

With a mix of Colombian, European and American bamboo experts, Guadua Bamboo S.A. has unparalleled international know-how of the industry. With each team member specialized in their proper field and decades of hands-on experience and passion for Guadua, we can accept and complete all our projects with the upmost confidence and highest quality standards.
