In 2021, we started a project called the Mainetti Global Forest. We planted 6,000 trees on 6 continents to commemorate our 60th Anniversary. That’s one tree for every employee. One hundred trees for every year we have been in business. We didn’t stop there. Today, there are over 30,000 trees in the Mainetti Global Forest. We protect the planet by following the commitments we made in our Full Circle initiative. We believe that by reducing carbon emissions while supporting reforestation efforts, we can combat climate change.
The continued use of fossil fuels and unending production of waste is leading to a rapid rise in the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Mainetti believes that companies can do our part to reverse the effects of climate change. We want to move our communities forward through sustainability leadership put into practice. From backyard tree planting to verified reforestation efforts, Mainetti believes that we must all do our part to improve our planet, and 30,000 trees is a good start.
Along with our colleagues at Centurybox Mainetti, we are planting trees to address several of the UN Sustainable Development Goals beyond the effects of deforestation. We work to improve the health and well-being of those less fortunate, and address the cycle of poverty and hunger by planting rapid fruit-bearing trees where they are desperately needed.
Through our Global Forest initiative, we address climate change by removing carbon from the atmosphere while we give back to the communities that have given so much to us. We believe that by lifting up our neighbors, we provide essential resources and hope for the future.
