Sustainable development

Since its creation, Nexira has been involved in sustainable development and has taken special care to preserve the raw materials it sources everyday from nature. Concrete examples below illustrate our daily commitment, especially when it comes to acacia gum and cactus sourcing.

Nexira has also been particularly involved in sustainable development in Africa with the NGO SOS SAHEL and its partners. This innovative and collaborative approach combines economic and social development for local populations with environmental protection.

See our infographics related to our contribution since 2009 through the Acacia Projects in the south-east of Chad:
