Daikin UK plants trees to offset carbon

Daikin UK has donated funds for almost 10,000 trees to be planted at a wilderness reserve in northern Scotland, as part of its efforts to offset the environmental impact of its business.
Daikin UK plants trees to offset carbon
Daikin and other companies have been working with The Carbon Managers, the organisation behind the Trees4Business campaign, to offset their carbon output by planting trees at the Alladale Wilderness Reserve. So far, over 800,000 native trees have been planted, including Scots Pine, Birch, Juniper, Oak, Rowan, Alder, Willow, Aspen and Holly.

Alladale Wilderness Reserve owner Paul Lister's vision is to restore woodland and wildlife to the area, helping conserve species that would otherwise be lost forever.

Account manager at The Carbon Managers, George Thomas, said: 'For every tonne of carbon created in a one year period, one tree can be planted, which will counter the effects of this emission over its lifetime'.

Each company works out the amount of carbon produced by calculating the amount of carbon emitted from the vehicle fleet, flights made, electricity, heating and other operations. This figure is then used to purchase an equivalent number of trees.

Richard Truttero, Manager, General Affairs at Daikin UK, said: 'We promote our renewable energy products as saving energy and reducing carbon emissions and as such we felt the need to raise our own green credentials. By participating in this scheme we can offset the carbon emissions that we produce as a business, and help to preserve the environment that we all live in.'
