Rewilding Europe Supervisory Board Terms of Reference.

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.’’

Foundation Rewilding Europe also is the sole owner of a limited liability company:

  • Rewilding Europe B.V., a limited liability company founded in 2011 and registered in the Netherlands. This company serves as an incubator to pilot and develop new business concepts that support the mission of the Foundation, and have, over time, a chance to become profitable and stand on their own feet.
  • Rewilding Europe Capital B.V., a limited liability company founded in 2017 and registered in the Netherlands. This company grants medium and long term concessional loans to local SMEs that have a positive impact on the Foundation’s rewilding activities, either by creating employment, attracting tourists or stimulating local economic development in the rewilding areas, contributing to developing the necessary buy-in from the population in and directly outside the rewilding areas. These SMEs are indispensable to the success of the Foundation’s activities in the rewilding areas. Any profits derived from Rewilding Europe Capital B.V. shall be channelled entirely to the Foundation.

The limited company is meant to be a risk mitigating and funding mechanism, supporting the work of the Foundation. The management responsibility and governance of the limited company is statutorily linked to the Foundation, as its sole beneficiary, owner and director.
