The Bamboo Experts:

Sustainable rural development and climate action with bamboo

Bamboo forest


At Wübu, our mission is to promote sustainable development and environmental conservation through the cultivation and utilization of bamboo. We aim to create a self-sustaining ecosystem that provides economic opportunities for local communities while also contributing to global efforts to address climate change through carbon offsetting.

Our innovative and holistic approach to bamboo cultivation and use is based on the principles of ecological balance, social responsibility, and economic viability. We produce industrialized bamboo products under the highest quality standards, and export them worldwide to support the growth of sustainable economies.

Through our partnerships with investors, we seek to expand our bamboo plantations in Central America, creating more opportunities for sustainable development and carbon offsetting. We are committed to building a more sustainable and resilient future for both local communities and the planet as a whole.

Expertise and


Innovative Solutions for Sustainable Development

At Wübu, we specialize in bamboo agroforestry systems, carbon offset projects, and industrialized bamboo products.

Our expertise lies in creating sustainable, regenerative ecosystems that benefit both the environment and local communities.

In addition to our bamboo plantations and transformation facilities, we are also committed to building eco villages made with bamboo and promoting sustainable rural livelihoods.

By incorporating local knowledge and innovative techniques, we strive to create holistic systems that provide economic, social, and environmental benefits for all stakeholders.


We Plan, We Plant, We Develop

Our planting and development programs are essential to achieving our sustainability goals. We carefully select the areas where we plant and take into consideration various factors such as topography, soil quality, and local community needs.

We have a rigorous planting schedule that ensures that our bamboo is planted at the optimal time of year for growth and survival. Additionally, we offer development programs that aim to improve the livelihoods of local communities and increase their resilience to the impacts of climate change.

These programs include training in sustainable agriculture, agroforestry, and bamboo cultivation, as well as supporting the establishment of community-based enterprises.

Through our planting and development programs, we aim to create a positive impact on the environment, society, and the economy.


Our Promise

We have a circular point of view. That means being leaders in environmental, social and economic sustainability.

At Wübu, we promise to deliver sustainable, holistic, and innovative solutions to address the challenges of climate change and rural development. We are committed to creating circular systems that benefit both the environment and the local communities we work with.

We will continue to prioritize the development of markets for our products, while also ensuring that the production process is socially responsible and economically beneficial for all stakeholders involved.

Metrics and Goals

At our core, we are driven by a commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility. We have set ambitious targets for ourselves as we work towards a more sustainable future.

By the end of 2023, we aim to be producing 30,000 bamboo squared strips per month and 8 tons of biochar per month, while adding new plantations totaling 500 hectares.

By the end of 2024, we want to expand our production to include bamboo wood, producing around 600 cubic meters per year, and add another 500 hectares to our plantations. Looking further ahead, by 2030, we aim to have 10,000 hectares of bamboo plantations across Guatemala and Central America. 

Each unit of plantation (22ha), can be accompanied by an ecovillage designed to work in a circular system. These goals are ambitious, but we believe in the transformative power of bamboo and its ability to drive meaningful change towards a sustainable future.

Bamboo is a woody grass. The quality of its wood is one of the best in the world, almost three times as strong as pine wood, with no knots and a beautiful fiber that can yield fine wood finishes.

Its growth is spectacular. It can offer high quality mature culms, ready to process, after its third year since planted. Obviously, the widest poles can take up to 8 years to mature and be harvest ready, depending on the species.​

Nevertheless, bamboo wood cannot be processed well with regular wood tools and equipment. The outer layer has a high content of silica and its so strong that takes out the sharpness of the tools in no time. This poses a problem that has to be solved with tungsten and diamond tools that cost more than regular woodworking ones.

Therefore, we at Wübu, managed to gather a team of manufacturers of tools and equipment tailor-made for bamboo. Check the groups of tools and machinery that we have and ask if you don't see what you need. We certainly have the chance to get you what is missing in your shop to produce the bamboo product your client needs!
