EnviroVent plants trees for Earth Day

Ventilation manufacturer EnviroVent is marking Earth Day by donating 1,000 trees to be planted as part of its commitment to the environment, offsetting 300 tonnes of CO2.

Jane McLean, quality & environmental systems manager at EnviroVent

The pledge has been made in partnership with the organisation MoreTrees and will see EnviroVent make further commitments in the next 12 months as part of the company’s wider Planet Friendly campaign. This equates to around 1,500 tonnes of carbon dioxide removed from the atmosphere, which would mean the company could offset its carbon footprint within an estimated nine to 10 years.

In addition to its 1,000 trees pledge, EnviroVent will also plant one tree for each ATMOS whole house ventilation system the company sells into a homeowner’s property (including landlords and letting agents) over the next 12 months.

To further boost the number of trees it plants, EnviroVent will also be hosting a range of fundraising activities amongst its staff.

Jane McLean, quality & environmental systems manager at EnviroVent, explained: “We are really excited to be launching our new partnership with MoreTrees on Earth Day – as a business, we’re 100 per cent committed to reducing our carbon footprint. We have been focused on reducing our impact on the environment for many years and this initiative, as part of our Planet Friendly campaign, shows a further commitment to sustainability which means those buying our ventilation systems can be safe in the knowledge they are giving back to the planet.”

She added: “In addition to planting new trees for every ATMOS whole house ventilation system sold into a homeowner’s property, we’ll also continue to find new ways to champion the environment and continuing our current commitments.”

EnviroVent selected MoreTrees as its tree planting partner for many reasons. MoreTrees partners with non-profit NGOs (non-government organisations) around the world, who work with local communities to plant trees in forests while reducing extreme poverty and combating deforestation.

The organisation supports the local community and people, providing jobs and a fair wage in the location of where the trees are planted. Each tree planted absorbs carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while also overcoming the negative effects of deforestation. Just one mangrove tree offsets an estimated 0.3 tonnes of CO2 over its 25-year growth life – which is the same as driving an estimated 733 miles in a standard car – this means that 1,000 trees = 300 tonnes of carbon over the trees' 25-year growth life.

Niki Tibble, co-founder of MoreTrees, said: “Our vision is to make it as simple as possible for businesses of all sizes to offset their carbon and meet their sustainability goals, with tree planting from £1 per tree. We’re delighted that EnviroVent has decided to get involved and this is a great way for the company to do its bit for the environment.”
