18,000 CO₂ - Loving Trees Planted!
Customers of our parent company FleetCor have commissioned the planting of over 18,000 trees already since the Ecopoint scheme launched in 2011.
These trees will lock away some 18,000 tonnes of CO2 in their lifetime, and provide valuable resources for a proliferation of wildlife and local communities. 18,000 tonnes of CO2 represents the emissions from 60 million miles in an average van – enough to travel more than twice around the globe.
Carbon offset and mitigation schemes have grown strongly in popularity over the last ten years, in particular as more reliable opportunities have been brought to market. Planting trees in recognition of the CO2 vehicles emit has been a traditional and favoured route for businesses and individuals looking to manage their carbon footprints.
