Alloy Wire International has announced that it is partnering with JUST ONE Tree, an initiative that will plant trees around the world and improve the global climate.
A non-profit initiative, JUST ONE Tree focuses on removing CO2 from the atmosphere and reversing biodiversity loss through global reforestation. They plant trees on land and in oceans, focusing on areas severely affected by deforestation so that they can reduce the impact of global warming as much as possible.
At the same time, the initiative also provides agricultural education and sustainable incomes to local communities.
Alongside Alloy Wire International becoming carbon negative, the company has pledged to plant a tree for every 100kg of wire sold. Based on the wire AWI has sold between the months of January and June, the company has already donated 990 trees to JUST ONE Tree, each of which will support a reforestation project in one of the following countries:
990 seeds will be planted by JUST ONE Tree in one of their nurseries. Once the next rainy season is underway, the seedlings will be transported to their carefully selected new homes, where they will be planted and nurtured over the coming years.
Once grown, these 990 trees will then start to remove approximately 304.92 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere over the next 25 years.
Joining forces with JUST ONE Tree is part of a wider picture involving Alloy Wire International becoming more environmentally friendly.
As part of its Wired For Good campaign, the company partnered with Carbon Neutral Britain and announced that it had become carbon neutral last year, after all manufacturing, deliveries and even employee commuting emissions had been offset. Only recently, this has now changed to AWI becoming carbon negative, after the manufacturer contributed further to worldwide renewable energy projects.
Mark Venables, Managing Director at Alloy Wire International said: “After joining forces with JUST ONE Tree, we believe that our commitment to sustainability is now stronger than ever. Manufacturers contribute so much in the way of greenhouse gases that it’s up to companies like Alloy Wire International to buck the trend and start giving back to the environment.
“Planting trees around the world is a wonderful initiative because it brings health back to the atmosphere by absorbing harmful gases such as CO2 and SO2. It also provides habitats for wildlife, particularly those who have been impacted by climate change and deforestation. We want to make a difference in any way we can, and working with JUST ONE Tree will help us progress even further with our efforts towards climate change.”
