SmartStone Energy Partners With More Trees, Planting Over 300 Trees Since 2021

LONDON, UK, May 3, 2023 – SmartStone Energy Solutions, one of the UK’s leading energy-saving, home insulation, and grant specialists, has partnered with More Trees by THG Eco to support its customers’ environmental efforts by planting trees.

Partnering with More Trees by THG Eco since 2021, SmartStone Energy provides its customers with a simple and effective way to reduce their carbon footprint whilst contributing to the fight against climate change. Tree planting is one of the most efficient methods of removing extra carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and lowering the accumulation of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

For every new SmartStone customer, one tree is planted on their behalf by More Trees in a location selected to have the most significant positive impact on the environment. Every new tree planted counts towards providing habitat for wildlife and improving the air and water quality for generations to come.

Did you know planting one tree will sequester 6.00 tonnes of CO2 – equivalent to 14,658 miles in a standard car?

“Environmental protection remains a top focus for SmartStone, and the trees we plant with More Trees on behalf of our customers will positively impact communities for many years to come,”

“Collaborating with More Trees by THG Eco has enabled us to plant over 300 trees in a relatively short time. This total equates to an estimated 102 tonnes of future CO2 sequestration. We look forward to continuing this initiative together to create a better planet.”

– SmartStone CEO, Gary Hanson

Climate Change and Sustainable Development Goals

In 2012 at The United Nations Conference in Rio de Janeiro, the world woke up to the devastating effect of climate change. From here, the United Nations established 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) – key benchmarks to address the world’s most serious environmental, political, and economic concerns.

Why is planting trees so important?

Take Forests forests, for example – home to more than 80% of the planet’s animals, plants and insects; they sustain us in what we breathe, drink, and eat. Forests cover almost 31% of the planet’s entire land area, and biodiversity is declining faster than ever before – with more than one-fifth of the land area entirely degraded and affecting the well-being of over 3.2 billion people.
