Tree Planting Initiative
As part of our operations AWP plants trees in Kenya. The trees are planted on our own plot of land, creating new carbon sinks that absorb CO2 from the atmosphere. This hands-on approach gives us more control on what species are planted and helps monitor effectiveness.
Planting trees reduces erosion and on top of making a positive impact on the environment tree planting is a way of providing work and life opportunities for local African people. Currently we employ three full-time workers through our tree planting initiative.
Did you know? Planting trees is one of the most effective solutions to battle climate change, absorbing on average ~ 22 kg of CO2 per year.
