Plant for the Planet
[This project has ended]
Climate change is the most important race against the clock humanity has ever faced. Climate change results from the greenhouse gas emission, of which CO2 is by far the most important one. Did you know deforestation is responsible of 17% of these CO2 emissions?
Therefore, as a solution, LC Supports Foundation advocates to plant more trees in order to address this global issue of climate change. Trees absorb CO2 from the atmosphere and store it. Tree-nation has created a platform that enables everyone to join efforts to reforest the world by making it easy for reforestation projects around the world to get funds needed to start planting trees.
LC Packaging’s operations have an impact on the environment. Annually, we are responsible for approx. 6,000,000 Kg CO2 emissions. Via the tree-nation platform the LC Supports Foundation is supporting a tree-planting project named ‘Planter pour la Planéte’ (Plant for the Planet) in Dassa, Burkina Faso.
Next to CO2 compensation, this project helps to:
- Improve the local agricultural and forestry practices
- Protect the soil and forest
- Avoid land degradation an deforestation
- Create alternative sources of medicines and nutrition
- and increase land productivity
LC Packaging serves customers in Burkina Faso and is increasingly present locally. In 2017 we donated 1,750 trees.
