The pledge has been made in partnership with the organisation MoreTrees and will see EnviroVent make further commitments in the next 12 months as part of the company’s wider Planet Friendly campaign. This equates to around 1,500 tonnes of Carbon Dioxide removed from the atmosphere, which would mean the company could oset its carbon footprint* within an estimated 9-10 years. In addition to its 1,000 trees pledge, EnviroVent will also plant one tree for each ATMOS whole house ventilation system the company sells into a homeowner’s property (including landlords and letting agents) over the next 12 months. To further boost the number of trees it plants, EnviroVent will also be hosting a range of fundraising activities amongst its sta. Beijer Ref pedal power boosts Prostate Cancer UK A small but determined team from wholesale group Beijer Ref has been cycling 100 miles during May to raise vital funds for Prostate Cancer UK. Cycle the Month is a virtual challenge for cyclists, with supporters cycling 100 miles their way, over a day, a weekend, a week or across the whole month to raise money to help beat prostate cancer, which is now the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK. Team Beijer Ref comprised: • Russell Cook (MHI business development manager for projects) • Jenny Dean (MHI Direct national sales manager) • Michael Goman (MHI business development manager for specifications) • Nathan Fox (MHI Direct account manager) • Adam Campbell (FridgeHub area sales manager) Jane McLean, quality & environmental systems manager, said: “We are really excited to be launching our new partnership with MoreTrees on Earth Day – as a business, we’re 100% committed to reducing our carbon footprint. We have been focused on reducing our impact on the environment for many years and this initiative, as part of our Planet Friendly campaign, shows a further commitment to sustainability which means those buying our ventilation systems can be safe in the knowledge they are giving back to the planet.’’ MoreTrees partners with non-profit NGOs (non-government organisations) around the world, who work with local communities to plant trees in forests while reducing extreme poverty and combating deforestation. *This is an estimated carbon oset over a 25-year growth period of the tree.
