Giving something back to the forest
A small status report on a big issue
As a long-time supporter of the Bergwaldprojekt e.V., we wanted to briefly introduce the work of the association here. We are happy to contribute to the many actions that are intended to preserve the vital eco-system forest for future generations. A look at the current state of the forest shows that there is a lot to do. It makes us all the more proud that joint commitment creates immediate successes.
There is no question: our forest has been better. The lack of rainfall, heat waves and storms are just as damaging as unnatural monocultures or massive pest infestations. Yet it is essential for our survival: it provides healthy air, stores drinking water, stabilises the climate, ensures biodiversity, supplies us with wood and quality of life. We want to preserve this. That’s why we support Bergwaldprojekt e.V., one of two projects we regularly sponsor as part of the environmental initiative 1% for the Planet. While we support ecological development in India with Sadhana Forest, the Bergwaldprojekt helps our local nature. The idea behind 1% for the Planet is as simple as it is successful: companies donate 1% of their annual turnover, and the environmental initiative uses the financial resources for carefully screened projects. So what has our funding partner Bergwaldprojekt e.V. achieved recently?
