Does planting trees help climate change?
As a business, you can compensate your carbon footprint, fund climate projects and set eco goals that do make a difference to our world. Trees fight climate change and are the ultimate carbon capture and storage machines, locking it up for centuries. As trees grow, they remove carbon dioxide from the air, store carbon in the trees and soil, and release oxygen into the atmosphere.
As part of our sustainability goals, we have committed to planting a tree for every hydration water cooler or hot tap that we sell which is over 500 trees every single month!
In the last six months, we planted over 8000 trees and removed over 250 tonnes of CO2 through our carbon neutral programmes. You can read more here.
What can we do to support our business goals?
We have partnered with UK-based environmental firm Ecologi, which plant trees and fund the world’s best climate crisis solutions. The WCD Group is proud to report that it has a climate positive workforce, which is the FIRST in the hydration industry!
As part of our sustainability vision to do more for the planet and combat the effects of climate change, our work with Ecologi allows us to offset the emissions from our team’s personal and professional lives resulting in the fact that our whole workforce is now climate positive! It's an achievement that supports our actions to deliver sustainable hydration.
Ecologi reminds us that reducing our carbon footprint is entirely necessary, but the transition of change is far slower than the time we have remaining. The tools that we associate with fighting climate change are inadequate.
What if that changed and the billions of us who care became empowered? There are enough climate solutions that are out there right now, that if we supported them, it would undo 30 years of carbon damage by avoiding 1,500 billion tonnes of CO2.
One tree for every product sold
As a hydration equipment supplier, we have committed to planting a tree for every water cooler or hot tap that we sell which equates to around 1000 trees every single month! So, we thank you for your future business as it is directly helping the climate crisis.
Check out our live progress here and see the 8682 trees we have already planted in live forestation projects we are supporting around the world. Some projects will be in the UK, too.
This dynamically updates each month, and we predict we will plant around 8000 trees and remove over 403 tonnes of CO2, every six months!
Don't just take our words for it - see the other Ecologi businesses also on board at the Ecologi website and find out more. If you also sign up to one of the Ecologi programmes we will receive even more trees to plant1
