Thomas Jorgensen, President & CEO
The Green Tree Initiative, launched in April 2019, began as an effort to offset supply chain environmental impact for its customers and employees by planting a tree for each and every shipment handled.
Trees are a habitat for biodiversity and create much of the planet’s oxygen. They help combat climate change and play a large role in agroforestry and in helping farming families improve their land quality and productivity.
Trees help to offset carbon and create oxygen through photosynthesis. A single forest garden tree can isolate approximately 34.6 pounds of carbon (260 pounds of oxygen) per year.
100,000 TREES MEANS…
1,569 METRIC TONS CARBON SEQUESTERED
11,793 METRIC TONS OF OXYGEN ADDED TO THE ATMOSPHERE
