Trees are key pillars of the world for both humans and the environment. They benefit us by purifying water, air and creating better social conditions. They benefit the environment by providing homes for various forms of life, cooling our climate and improving our soil.
Trees also serve to remove carbon from the atmosphere, thereby helping to achieve carbon neutrality and better the environment.
We are completely committed to playing our part in achieving carbon neutrality on the planet. To this end, we are constantly planting trees to help achieve a balance between the carbon removed into the atmosphere and the carbon emitted to it through our website infrastructure and our staff's carbon footprints.
We go the extra mile to reduce our carbon footprints by using 100% renewable energy, solar-charged cars and maintaining a paperless work environment.
Trees purify water and slow down rain by filtering it with their roots. This process prevents erosion and reduce the risk of saturation and flooding
Roughtly 1/3 of the world's largest cities rely on protected forest areas for a large proportion of their drinking water. This includes cities such as New York and Singapore
Trees and forests are often referred to as the "lungs of the planet" for a very simple reason: they produce oxygen. It is estimated that 1 acre of trees can provide the oxygen requirements of 12 people for a year.
In addition to absorbing CO2, trees also absorb harmful pollutant gases such as sulphur dioxide, ozone, ammonia, carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides
Trees cool the surrounding air by providing shade and by a process called transpiration cooling. This is where trees release water droplets from their leaves that cool the surrounding area when they evaporate
We derive many medicines from tree bark, leaves and flowers of different species. These are usually used in herbal medicine, but many compounds in pharmaceutical industries are based on those originally extracted from trees.
Many of the world's extreme poor live close to a forested area. Food, drink and equipment obtained from these forests can account for up to 28% of total household earnings in some tropical and subtropical regions.
Trees and nature have been shown to improve mental health and cognition in both healthy individuals and those suffering from mental illness.
