The Faber Halbertsma Group (FHG) and Land Life Company have started a reforestation program with large-scale plantings in Spain. The trees will be planted, among others, in Tarilonte, Castilla y León, as part of the group’s sustainability and circularity strategy.
Circularity and the reduction of CO2 emissions are central to FHG’s sustainability strategy. Among other things, the group uses circular pooling solutions to reduce CO2 emissions as much as possible.
Because it is not yet possible to completely exclude emissions, the company also opts for planting trees.
“Sustainability is a spearhead in our strategy for the coming years. We see the collaboration with Land Life Company as an important part of this. Planting trees is the most effective way to remove CO2 from the air, and these trees will obviously not be used to make pallets later,” said Erik Faber, of the Faber Halbertsma Group.
To ensure tangible climate impact, FHG will plant about 30,000 trees on approximately 33 hectares of degraded land in Spain, because it is one of the countries in Europe where desertification has hit hardest.
Land Life Company tracks all trees planted in the various locations so the growth and CO2 capture can be closely monitored.
Sander Keulen, head of business development at Land Life Company, said: “We are very happy FHG is supporting us in reforesting land where nature cannot come back on its own. With this they do more than just compensating their CO2 emissions. They are restoring nature and important ecosystems.”
