The Greenest Place Since Ever

It will be a challenging task to find a greener place than the most forested country in the world which is Suriname. Along with Bhutan and Panama, these countries prove to be leading the way in emission reduction compared to bigger nations in the world. All three have successfully become carbon-negative countries in the world.

93% opportunities 
93% of Suriname consists of Amazon forest and is home to an abundance of flora and fauna. More fertile soil is hardly imaginable. Plenty of opportunities and space for green innovation. 

Discover Suriname 
Surinam will be the green heart of the Floriade in Almere 2022. The theme ‘Growing Green Cities’ is tailor-made for the country. Green is our nature, it breathes through our forest, the jungle and traces its roots to the Amazon. This is your invitation to discover Suriname.

Global Solutions 
Find answers and solutions to complex global issues such as climate change, rising sea levels, Co2 absorption, freshwater, and food shortages at the Suriname Pavilion. “The vibrant heart of Floriade 2022″.

Discover the Oxygen Factory

Start a truly sustainable business

A powerful co2 catalyst and also a Great oxygen factory. More than 93% of Suriname’s territory is covered with forests. This absorbs 8.8 million tons of carbon annually. Suriname causes an annual emission of 7 million tons of carbon. This qualifies Suriname as a CO2-negative country.

There are many business opportunities in agriculture or sustainable tourism! That is why Suriname has mapped out the path to an entirely green economy. Every investor, entrepreneur or student who wants to start, invest or study in sustainable and fair businesses is welcome. Get to know our NGO’s, and green projects.

Other products with great potential are sesame seeds, pineapple, mango, guava, watermelon, onions, vegetables, and citrus (especially lemon and oranges).
