Our Goal - To reduce our carbon footprint across the FLRS group in a socially responsible method. Through carbon offsetting, efficient equipment, tree reforestation projects and greener fleet choices.
- Climate Change
Climate change is happening everyday across the world, from floods, hurricanes, heatwaves and snowstorms. Climate change is caused by greenhouse gas emissions, of which CO2 is by far the most important one.
Deforestation is responsible for 17% of the world's CO2 emissions. Trees play a key role in our ecosystems, cutting them has devastating effects. Not only it effects our flora and fauna, it affects humans alike.
Pollution is the number one cause of death in developing countries. Trees absorb CO2 and other dangerous gasses and, in turn, replenish the atmosphere with oxygen.
- Species Extinction
30% of fauna and 60% of flora species are on the brink of mass-extinction. Forests host most of our biodiversity. Uncontrolled deforestation is the main cause of species extinction.
Responsible for thousands of deaths and billions of £ in lost assets. Trees prevent flooding by trapping water with their roots while limiting land erosion and avoiding landslides.
One billion people are under threat from desertification, one of the main causes of poverty. Trees are a natural barrier upon desertification, and they avoid land degradation.
- Food Shortage
700 million people suffer chronic malnutrition. Tree food products complement agricultural crops and provide important micro-nutrients. Thanks to their deep root’s trees are more resilient to droughts and floods, providing essential food access in famine periods.
- Poverty & Migrations
2.7 billion people live on less than £2 a day. Agro-forestry & reforestation increase land productivity, create jobs and bring a secure, diversified source of income. Conservation of land productivity is key to avoid mass migration and humanitarian/economic crisis.
- Let's Plant
We are creating high standard sustainable forestry and agro-forestry projects. The best practice is to ultimately plant more trees than we cut.
