The second year of the MartinoRossi For the Planet project, in partnership with Environomica, ended on a high note.

To date 20,264 trees have been planted in the area of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountain range in Colombia as part of the MartinoRossi For the Planet project, an international initiative begun in 2019 in collaboration with the Environomica Onlus to contrast the threat of deforestation in the Amazon region.

For the second year in a row we have met the objective of 10,000 trees, two for every truck load exiting our facility. This small, but rightful, contribution is important in terms of compensating for emissions and, in two years, has allowed us to surpass the quota of 4 million kg of compensated CO2.

Thanks to the precious contribution of a growing number of people, we are taking care of vast areas of deforested lands, planting tall trees and other native varieties like coffee and cocoa.

This complex job is starting to bear fruit, both in terms of the amount of land that has been returned to the forest and in terms of the socio-economic development of the local community, which, in the forest, can finally find not only new resources to be processed into products.

We’re proud of the results that we’ve achieved, but don’t want to stop here: together with the staff of Environomica, our commitment to safeguarding our priceless natural patrimony and providing tangible help to those who need it continues.
