We support Cool Earth to help stop deforestation!
We work with Cool Earth, the non-profit organisation that works alongside local people to halt deforestation and forest degradation.
Did you know more than 1.6 billion people, or 25% of the world’s population, rely on forest resources for their livelihoods? But this is contributing to vast climate change.
Unfortunately, the result of climate change is felt most by those who are least able to adapt. Forest communities are living at the frontline of climate change and drying rainforest, forest fires and reduced rainfall are increasingly common challenges.
Some are pressured into selling their trees for timber or ranchland, palm oil or mining. But luckily some are now refusing, choosing instead to work with Cool Earth to keep the world’s biggest carbon store intact.
By stopping deforestation, responsible for around 12% of carbon emissions, we can join the global movement to #MoveTheDate back. By simply keeping trees standing we can prevent billions of tonnes of carbon emissions and bridge the gap between today and a carbon-neutral future.
We are only too aware of the essential part rainforests play in the battle against climate change. Keeping just one acre of rainforest standing ensures 260 tonnes of carbon are not released as carbon dioxide. In fact, you’d have to recycle 2 million cans to have the same impact.
We believe that cutting carbon and reducing the impact on the world should be the norm for all businesses. So, by doing this and much, much more with Cool Earth we hope we’re setting the standard and leading the way for a positive global future where we don’t place so much strain on the Earth’s resources. We’re helping to #MoveTheDate.
