Objective of the foundation

According to the statutes, ‘’Rewilding Europe Foundation has the objective of, in particular but not exclusively, stimulating (having stimulated), in association with local organisations, the return and expansion of wild nature and wildlife in Europe, as well the stimulation of nature and landscape development, on the basis of natural processes and for the benefit of society.’’

Under the foundation, Rewilding Europe has also established the following entities:

  • Rewilding Europe B.V., a limited liability corporation setup in 2011 under Dutch law and registered in the Netherlands. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Rewilding Europe Foundation and has been established for the purpose of carrying out or participating in any future commercial activities, which may be relevant to our projects and overall rewilding objectives. Furthermore, it is used to execute activities that may impose certain liability risks, to prevent the capital of the foundation to be exposed to this risk. Income through the limited company is only to be used by the single and 100% shareholder (the foundation) to contribute to its objectives.
  • Rewilding Europe Capital B.V., a limited liability corporation setup in 2017 under Dutch law and registered in the Netherlands. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Rewilding Europe Foundation and has been established for the purpose of managing Rewilding Europe Capital; an enterprise loan facility to support rewilding enterprises with financial loans.

Both  limited companies are meant to be a funding mechanism to enable the work of the foundation, to create a certain level of financial sustainability in the long term and mitigate the risk of liabilities. The management responsibility and governance of the limited company is statutory linked to the foundation as its sole beneficiary, owner and director.

Reward policy

The members of the Supervisory Board of Rewilding Europe do not receive any remuneration, neither directly nor indirectly, for the activities they carry out. They are, however, entitled to reimbursement of the costs incurred by them within the performance of their position and approved by the executive board. These reimbursements are made clear and are further elucidated in the annual report. The reward for directors and other employees is determined by the Supervisory Board in accordance with guidelines of the Goede Doelen Nederland.
