Corporate Social Responsibility tree planting initiative
On 24 November 2016, CDS staff Alyn Johnson, Simon Bourne, Lee Pearce and Ryan Lodge took part in a tree planting day at Heartwood Forest, near Hatfield, St Albans.
England’s largest new native forest, Heartwood Forest is a large-scale reforestation project that will see 600,000 new trees planted over 858 acres in the next 12 years.
The event was held by the Premier Paper Group and the Woodland Trust as part of Premier’s Carbon Capture Programme.
The programme includes planting trees in Government approved woodland carbon sites to reduce the amount of CO2 generated by paper that printers and print management companies like CDS buy for our customers’ printed products.
The Carbon Capture programme planted more than 23,000 trees in 2016. This has reduced over 11,000 tonnes of CO2 through the Woodland Trust’s woodland carbon scheme.
Corporate Social Responsibility
This is the 2nd year CDS has taken part in this ambitious tree planting initiative. It forms part of CDS’s environmental responsibility strategy, in line with the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility, Sustainability and Environmental Policies.
We are pleased to be part of this initiative and contribute to carbon reduction. The scheme also creates woodlands right here in the UK for wildlife to flourish and for local communities to visit and enjoy.
