Corporate Partnerships

Corporate partnerships are core to our operations at SOS. We work with a range of companies in a variety of ways to find our shared purpose and develop partnerships that provide reciprocal benefits for your business and our mission to ensure wild orangutans can thrive in resilient rainforest landscapes in Sumatra, Indonesia.  

Through a partnership with SOS your business can bring ESG reporting to life, demonstrate your commitment to sustainability, and help to protect nature and biodiversity in some of the most important rainforests on the planet. 

We can help you to add value to your brand, drive sales, and enhance your communications with authentic impact stories, professional images, and breathtaking footage of orangutans in the wild. 

Ways to work with us:

  • Donate to plant trees which provide benefits to the precious Sumatran rainforest ecosystem, ensure orangutans have food and shelter, and support forest-edge entrepreneurs to earn an income by selling things that grow on trees. 
  • Develop on-pack promotions which help drive sales, demonstrate your values and generate donations to help protect rainforests and orangutans.
  • Support project activity that aligns with your own business goals and benefit from excellent communications content that helps to build your brand and meet your CSR/ESG targets.
  • Provide pro bono, specialist, professional support to help improve SOS’ operations and engage your employees with a deeper sense of purpose.

Our corporate partners make a huge difference, every day, to help protect, connect and rewild vital rainforest landscapes and safeguard the future for wild, rare Sumatran and Tapanuli orangutans. Your business will be helping in the fight against climate change too – we all need resilient rainforests. 

Get in touch today to find out how we can work together.

Our Partners


SOS and Lush have been working together for over 15 years to make a lasting impact on the future for Sumatra’s rainforests and its orangutans. In 2019 Lush created an orangutan soap to raise funds to help secure and restore a decommissioned palm oil plantation back to flourishing rainforest.  To support their ethical sourcing policy, Lush now sources lemongrass from permaculture smallholdings in Sumatra. In 2022 Lush used this lemongrass along with Sumatran dark patchouli to create a limited edition orangutan bath bomb, sold across the globe to raise funds and awareness of the need to ensure connectivity in the rainforest landscape at West Toba so its remaining Sumatran orangutan population has enough space to move, feed and breed into the future.

Our partnership with Edrington is long term and strategic, with a focus on employee engagement. Their generous donations support the breadth of SOS’ protect, connect, rewild approach towards our vision of wild orangutans thriving in resilient rainforests. Edrington also helps to support the Leuser Nature School so primary age children can learn about the value of the rainforest for biodiversity and orangutans!

Whole Earth

As peanut butter fans, we love our partnership with Whole Earth who are planting 50,000 trees through sales of their Golden Rainforest Peanut Butter. This special jar features illustrations of endangered wildlife in the Sumatran rainforest including orangutans, tigers and hornbills so look out for it on supermarket shelves!. The trees are planted by forest-edge communities to help secure the future for Sumatra’s precious biodiversity and to help in the fight against climate change.
