Charitable Choices: Jonathan Villiard of Digital Humani

Digital Humani, a Montreal-based non-profit organization, has spearheaded the development of an advanced reforestation technology. This innovative platform serves as a bridge between reforestation organizations and a diverse array of groups. Their pioneering Reforestation as a Service (RaaS) has emerged as a scalable and economically viable solution, enabling environmentally conscious organizations to support reforestation initiatives through their day-to-day operations. Notably, Digital Humani has successfully planted over 300,000 trees in collaboration with reputable partners. We had the opportunity to speak to Jonathan Villiard, General Manager and Founder of Digital Humani, to learn more about his conscious and admirable non-profit.

When did you start/join it?


What made you want to get involved?

Climate change is a generational problem and I wanted to apply what I do and know to help solve it.

What was the situation like when you started?

There was nothing similar at the time hence we made the idea a reality.

How has it changed since?

We added reforestation partners (we now have 7 around the world) and we’re now focusing on integrations to make our RaaS software work with other software tools without the need to be a coding expert.

What more needs to be done?

Get more organizations to add this to their business practices.
