Trees for Life Partnership: One Year and 200 Trees Later!


This week marks the year anniversary of Force One’s charity partnership with Trees for Life, dedicating one of our suction excavators to helping plant trees and contribute to rewilding of the Scottish Highlands. This also coincides with the 26th UN climate change conference of the parties (COP26), which the UK is hosting in Glasgow currently.

COP26 has four main goals:

  1. Secure global net zero by mid-century and keep 1.5 degrees within reach
  2. Adapt to protect communities and natural habitats
  3. Mobilise finance
  4. Work together to deliver

As outlined by the second goal of ‘protecting communities and natural habitats’ restoring habitats is a focal point of the conference, with more than 100 world leaders promising to end and reverse deforestation by 2030 in the first major summit deal.

In the last 12 months, Force One have contributed 200 trees to the Scottish Highlands through hires of our dedicated charity partnership suction excavator. Whilst we are still far from perfect when it comes to our environmental impact, supporting Trees for Life in restoring ecological diversity and enriching the habitat is a positive change we have made the past year and will continue to implement. Trees for Life have recently launched a new long term rewilding project, spanning across 500,000 acres making it their ninth area in the Scottish Highlands. Although Force One’s contribution is small, its great to be part of such beneficial work.

As a company we continue to monitor our scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions throughout the year and produce an annual carbon emissions report as well as a sustainability report, allowing us to set targets and monitor our progress.

In addition to the above, we will continue to educate our staff on environmental impact and the changes that we all can make to assist in reaching the worldwide goal of net zero by 2050.
