Hoffmann Group UK has recently announced plans to plant 10,000 trees over the next five years as it launches its new green initiative in partnership with climate solutions specialist Ecologi.
The initiative, which will run until 2027, began on Earth Day, 22nd April with 500 trees being planted in Madagascar. At least 62 trees will be planted each month, with 50 of those being in the UK and the rest around the globe supporting worldwide projects.
A further 500 trees will also be planted over the coming weeks in conjunction with the Royal Jubilee initiative, ‘Plant a Tree for the Jubilee’ and World Environment Day, which both took place in early June.
Finally, the business will plant 62 trees – for each of its UK employees – and a tree for every Garant GreenPlus product purchased by a customer. Hoffmann Group UK’s Garant GreenPlus product range encompasses a variety of sustainable cleaning and adhesive bonding products that are environmentally-compatible, cost-saving and enable faster working.
Alongside the new tree planting project Hoffmann has also helped to deliver renewable power solutions across the globe through ambitious projects in Mexico, Honduras, India and Vietnam, in partnership with Ecologi. These projects are seeing significant real-world impacts, with 634,607 tonnes of CO2 having been offset annually through these projects.
Tim Paddison, managing director at Hoffmann Group UK said: “As an organisation we recognise we have a responsibility to minimise our environmental impact wherever possible. This project will significantly reduce our carbon footprint and clearly demonstrate our core values and objectives.
“The launch of one of our latest product ranges, the Garant GreenPlus presented the perfect opportunity to make additional strides towards becoming a greener company.”
