1500 trees in Belgium

1500 trees planted in Belgium

In Ninove (Belgium), 35 motivated colleagues put on their gloves and planted no less than 455 trees. Afterwards, they went for a refreshing nature walk in the company of a real Natuurpunt-guide. Even the sticky mud couldn’t spoil this breathtaking and inspiring outdoors activity. In total, we will be planting 1500 trees.

2000 trees planted in Luxembourg

In Klierf (Luxembourg), 21 enthusiastic colleagues braved the elements to plant no less than 280 trees. Afterwards, during a walk in the undergrowth, a Reforest'Action-guide explained to them the stakes of biodiversity. 
This initiative is also part of a bigger project, where 2 trees will be planted for each new opened bank account. In total, we will be planting 2000 trees.

Native species to reinforce local biodiversity

For both projects, native species were planted to revitalize these forest plots. The planting of several species increases the resistance of the stands to climatic and biological hazards. In the long term, this plantation will reinforce the local biodiversity and will store a large quantity of carbon.
A big ‘thanks!’ to all colleagues for your engagement and participation, which will truly make a positive impact on the future!
