Wildfire Energy UK in partnership with One Tree Planted has pledged to plant 10 trees on behalf of any business that signs a new gas or electricity contract through them.
The partnership aims to plant 1,000 trees over the next year and participating businesses will receive a certificate to demonstrate their commitment to tackling the climate crisis.
Quiller Hawkins, Wildfire's commercial sales director said: "Sustainability and the environment have always been a high priority for me personally. And whilst Wildfire offer and supply renewable energy tariffs to customers, the 'One Tree Planted' project allows us and our customers to do even more for the environment."
One Tree Planted run reforestation initiatives in 18 countries across four continents. Its efforts aim to reduce the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere while also restoring the forests' natural biodiversity and providing jobs in communities where the projects take place. Customers will be able to determine where their trees are planted and have the option to get involved in reforestation projects.
"It's great to work with Wildfire Energy and make a positive impact by planting trees on behalf of their customers," said Matt Hill, One Tree Planted's chief environmental evangelist. "Every action we take really adds up, and the fact that Wildfire offers renewable energy and other energy-reducing products creates even more long-term benefit for sustainability."
Wildfire Energy is dedicated to helping businesses reduce their carbon footprint and work more sustainably. In addition to supporting its customers in running more energy efficient businesses, a quarter of Wildfire’s partners are 100 per cent green energy suppliers. By collaborating with One Tree Planted, it wants to make it easy for businesses to do their bit to help the environment.
