There is no Plan(et) B and the message couldn’t be any clearer; we’re in a climate emergency and we have to ACT NOW. Effects that scientists had long predicted would result from global climate change are now occurring, such as sea ice loss, accelerated sea level rises, and longer, more intense weather extremes.
The planet’s oceans and it’s habitats are under serious threat and the damage will soon be irreversible and change our planet forever. The need to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as much as possible, and balance out remaining emissions by absorbing an equivalent amount from the atmosphere is imperative in order to see considerable change.
The UK has pledged to be carbon neutral by 2050. In order to help achieve this goal we are excited to launch ACRE NET ZERO – our Reforestation initiative.
Trees are one of the most powerful weapons in the fight against climate change due to their ability to absorb and store carbon dioxide and convert this into oxygen. In partnership with The Future Forest Company thefutureforestcompany.com, we are supporting their overarching mission to plant enough trees to remove 1 million tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by 2030.
For every single tree lost as a result of any of our redevelopment projects, we commit to plant 5 trees within UK privately owned, protected woodlands. Planting only native species further supports our sustainability pledge.
