The Loyco forest is growing: the fruit of collective action!

31 Jan, 2022

A little over a month ago, our clients received the traditional end-of-year greetings from our Loycomates. Driven by the desire to contribute to the environment, we have once again decided to allocate the budget initially dedicated to gifts for our clients to support reforestation projects carried out by Tree-Nation.

Tree-Nation a non-profit organisation, supports various reforestation projects throughout the world by allowing citizens and businesses to plant trees and take a step towards offsetting their CO2 emissions.

We are aware that the subject of carbon offsetting through reforestation is a complex subject that deserves development. This is why you can find out more about our intentions, our commitments and this offsetting practice ici.


A committed greetings card

The personalised greetings cards, sent by email, offered each recipient the possibility to vote and direct their donation to the reforestation project of their choice. Our list included 3 forestry projects:

Revégétalisation de la forêt de Daintree, Australie

Daintree Life is planting trees in cleared areas of the Daintree Rainforest, the oldest rainforest on earth. The goal of the Daintree Life Revegetation project is to plant 500,000 trees by 2030 to increase wildlife habitat and food resources by replacing weeded areas.

Durabilité et production rurale, Brésil

The removal of forests leads to the loss of many ecosystem services, such as water supply. With the Sowing Water project, the IPÊ organisation wants to influence the producers of Cantareira to use the land sustainably and recompose the forest while involving the community through environmental education.

We are happy to announce that 30,818 trees have been added to the Loyco forest!Thanks to the Tree-Nation platform, all our actions are grouped in a virtual forest.
