Hague Fasteners are proud to announce we are a Carbon Neutral and Carbon Negative Company.
Carbon Neutral Carbon Negative Net Zero Tree Planting
Hague have invested into the United Nations Framework Convention On Climate Change Project under CDM Project 2535: CUIDEMOS Mexico (Campana De Uso Intelegente De Energia Mexico) – Smart Use of Energy Mexico, to retire Carbon Credits which offsets our Carbon Footprint ftom 2021 and then retired for each year up to end of 2030.
In order to make a positive impact on the environment, in 2021, Hague Fasteners also started a tree planting project, the “Hague Fasteners Forest”.
Planting just 200 trees each year will help improve our impact on the environment while supporting climate action. Each tree we plant sequesters an estimated 0.3 tonnes of Carbon Dioxide over its growth life – meaning that our target of 200 per year will eventually result in 60 tonnes of CO2 being absorbed from the atmosphere in the future.
Hague Fasteners are partnered with (more:trees) who work with tree planting partners across the world, supporting local communities to restore healthy forests and reduce extreme poverty.
We target and invest in Tree Planting Projects around the World with initiatives ranging from Conservation, Water channeling, supporting Communities and Wildlife whilst further improving food security and supply.
Our Hague Fasteners Forest not only Nourishes our planet, it helps to reduce extreme poverty in some of the worlds poorest communities. We help support biodiversity whilst reversing de-forestation.
If we all make a small change we can make a big impact, thank you for your support protecting our environment and supporting our planet.
Our Tree Planting Project Locations
Madagascan forests are some of the most diverse and ecologically significant in the world, with 75% of the species endemic to the area. As it stands, less than 10% of the island’s primary forests remain.
Over the years, the dense mangrove estuaries that protect the coastline have been targeted by charcoal producers and tree poachers, destroying once-productive fisheries, and exposing coastal communities to extreme weather events. Inland, deforestation is threatening one of the world’s rarest and most diverse forest systems.
Our tree planting efforts support four different planting sites along Madagascar’s north-western coast: Antsanitia, Akalamboro, Vilamatsa and Mangaroa/Besley.
Home to an estimated 1,847 species of birds, mammals, amphibians, and reptiles as well as 6,505 types of vascular plants, Kenya’s forests are some of the most ecologically diverse on the planet.
Covering over 37 million hectares, these forests sequester enormous amounts of CO2, store rainwater, and provide local livelihoods across the nation. However, in recent decades human activities such as logging, charcoal burning, and illegal agricultural settling has led to widespread deforestation, resulting in an increase in severe drought and extreme poverty.
With our support our Tree Planting partners have targeted a reforestation commitment from the Kenyan government to accomplish 10% forest cover.
As it stands, 81% of the Nepalese population live in rural areas, where countless communities depend on the forest for food, shelter, and income. 27 endangered mammal species also call Nepal’s forests their home.
Today, less than 30% of its original forests remain due to over-harvesting, forest fires, and agriculture. The effects of this deforestation are devastating for the local communities and wildlife.
Our tree planting efforts support reforestation in the mountainous city of Pokhara.
Honduras is a country of remarkable beauty, rich cultural heritage and abundant biodiversity, with more than 6,000 plants, 700 birds, 250 reptiles and amphibians, and 110 mammal species nestled in its borders.
Yet, deforestation poses a significant threat to this beautiful country. Fires, urban sprawl, invasive species, illegal logging and disease-carrying pine beetles have decimated 1.26 million hectares of rainforest, dry tropical forests and tropical mountain systems in just two decades.
Our trusted planting partner works alongside local NGO’s to reverse this devastating situation.
