HUESKER Australia has announced a partnership with One Tree Planted that aims to plant 10,000 trees for the creation of habitat corridors for koalas, restoration of bushfire affected areas and to promote Australia’s biodiversity, in the next five years. For every roll of material purchased, HUESKER Australia will plant one tree in Australia.
“Working with One Tree Planted is a great fit for HUESKER Australia,” said HUESKER Australia Managing Director Morné Breytenbach. “Geosynthetics, what we do, reduces CO2 emissions by up to 89% on construction projects [when] it is incorporated to replace traditional construction materials. It’s great to have another way to contribute and help the environment.”
The objectives of this new partnership include supporting Australian reforestation efforts, empowering its partners and clients with sustainable actions and raising awareness about the importance of ecosystem restoration
Planting trees is one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects of climate change. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80 percent of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity.
Trees also provide tremendous social impacts by providing jobs to more than 1.6 billion people, empowering women in underdeveloped nations, and supporting communities devastated by environmental damage. The partnership is designed to be simple for customers to get involved in global reforestation. For every roll of material sold from HUESKER Australia’s inventory, the company will donate $1 to One Tree Planted to plant one tree. The trees are planted by local partner organizations and community volunteers in areas where there has been deforestation.
