Plans to set up the country’s first commercial bamboo factory are in high gear. GreenPot’s proposition is a high impact business experience that seeks to transform individual, community and national fortunes through a raft of innovative bamboo based concepts and initiatives. The bamboo forest establishment plan involves a combination of the gated communities plus an elaborate community outreach scheme through which out-growers are encouraged to participate in bamboo production vide a series of incentives and support measures.

There are five main areas of the company’s impact: GreenPot plans to set a number of factories in diverse parts of the country. The first factory is set to be completed by 2017.
