One tree: tonnes of benefits
As part of our ongoing commitment to environmental issues, JML have joined the THG more:trees scheme which will see us plant a tree for every new and renewed customer contract we receive. We have started our own little forest by planting a tree on behalf of every JML employee.
The scheme works with tree planting projects across the world, to support a variety of locations with various co-benefits such as poverty alleviation, biodiversity and community support. More information on the current projects can be found here;
As our JML forest grows, it will not only help absorb carbon from the atmosphere, but will also:
- Provide farms with work to support the local economy
- Give someone an income and a skill to feed their family
- Protect animals from deforestation
- Increase rainfall, purify water and improve crop yield.
One tree sequesters an estimated 0.3t of CO2 over its growth life. But that’s far from its only benefit.
Nourishing our planet
Trees clean the air, filter water, regulate rainfall, improve soil quality, offer shelter and reduce flooding.
Reducing extreme poverty
Trees provide work, improve crop yield, generate income sources and help the local economy.
Trees support different species of animals, invertebrates, plants, fungi, lichens and mosses.
Trees help healthy forests re-emerge, restoring animal habitats, purifying water sources, replenishing soil, controlling flooding and improving weather patterns.
Climate change is impacting on people around the world in various ways and we at JML hope our small change will make a big difference.
