Tree planting program

We plant ten trees for every wagon manufactured

Romania is considered home to some of the last remaining virgin forests in Europe. These forests are of immense ecological significance and support a diverse range of plant and animal species, including some of Europe’s most iconic and elusive wildlife.

However, these forests are currently endangered and facing challenges such as deforestation, illegal logging, and habitat fragmentation. The shrinking of these forests can have severe ecological consequences, including loss of biodiversity, disruption of ecosystems, and negative impacts on climate regulation. Restoring and preserving Romania’s virgin forests is not only an environmental necessity but also a global responsibility.

We recognize the ecological significance of these forests and are taking action to restore them, to contribute to the conservation of biodiversity, the mitigation of climate change, and the overall health of the planet, environment and society.

Environmental Conservation

Trees play a crucial role in mitigating climate change by absorbing carbon dioxide, a major greenhouse gas responsible for global warming. Planting trees helps to offset the company’s carbon footprint and contributes to overall carbon sequestration, which is essential for maintaining a healthy environment.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

Implementing a tree planting program showcases our company’s commitment to sustainable practices and environmental stewardship. It aligns with the company’s CSR objectives and demonstrates concern for the well-being of the planet and future generations.

Legacy Building

Our tree planting program will leave a lasting impact on the environment and communities, serving as a testament to the company’s commitment to sustainability for years to come.

Continued Engagement

Ongoing tree care and maintenance can create opportunities for continuous engagement with employees and communities, reinforcing the company’s commitment to sustainability.
