20-YEAR PARTNERSHIP PROTECTING FORESTS FOR CLIMATE, NATURE, AND PEOPLE
The innovative partnership focuses on the conservation and restoration of forests through a number of projects around the globe and the partnership simultaneously aims at enhancing biodiversity and improving the livelihood of local communities.
Nature is in crisis and climate change is the greatest challenge humanity has ever faced. Tackling it involves every single one of us, and governments and businesses need to commit to more ambitious action to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.
The VELUX Group has joined the Science Based Targets initiative, committing to reduce its own CO2 emissions as well as from its entire value chain. This is in line with what climate science points out is necessary to limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.
OLD TREES – NEW IDEAS
Our forests are in a crisis. According to the UN, 88,000 sq. km of natural forest is lost every year – equivalent to the size of London every week. And only 17 per cent of the remaining valuable forest is being protected.
Fortunately, nature itself has solutions to combat these challenges. By storing CO2 in old tropical forests with a high density of threatened species, we can fight climate change while saving our planet’s valuable biodiversity.
