Carbon Neutral 2021 to 2030

In conjuction with our ‘Hague Forest’ tree planting scheme, Hague Fasteners are proud to re-affirm that we are a Carbon Neutral and Carbon Negative Company.

Hague Fasteners Carbon Neutral

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 sees us offset our Carbon Footprint from 2021 and then retired through to and including 2030.

With the addition of our ongoing tree planting scheme we are ensuring that we have a positive impact on the environment, removing more carbon from the atmosphere than we create through our operation whilst supporting economic and environmental projects and development in Nepal, Kenya, Honduras, Madagascar & The Philippines.

In an era of increasing environmental concerns, the importance of carbon sequestration and supporting tree planting initiatives cannot be overstated. In particular, the countries of Madagascar, Haiti, and Kenya hold tremendous significance due to their ecological diversity and vulnerability to climate change. As we navigate the challenges of the 21st century, it is imperative for all companies to recognize their role in environmental responsibility and join forces to protect the world we live in.

As stewards of the environment, companies must embrace their role in promoting sustainability and combating climate change. By supporting carbon sequestration and tree planting initiatives, businesses demonstrate their commitment to a greener future, mitigate their carbon footprint, and inspire others to follow suit. Collaborative efforts between companies, governments, and local communities in Madagascar, Haiti, and Kenya can lead to profound positive changes and pave the way for a more sustainable world.

Madagascar: Preserving Biodiversity, Fighting Climate Change: With its unique flora and fauna, Madagascar is a biodiversity hotspot facing unprecedented challenges. Deforestation has accelerated, leading to habitat loss and increased carbon emissions. By investing in tree planting initiatives, companies can actively participate in reforestation efforts, restoring critical ecosystems such as the lush rainforests of Ranomafana and the iconic baobab forests. This support will not only help in carbon sequestration but also safeguard countless species from extinction.

Haiti: Reforestation for Resilience: Haiti, known for its rich cultural heritage, is grappling with severe environmental degradation. Rampant deforestation has resulted in soil erosion, increased vulnerability to natural disasters, and diminished livelihoods for local communities. Supporting tree planting initiatives in Haiti can revitalize ecosystems, enhance soil stability, and provide sustainable economic opportunities. Companies can play a pivotal role in reforestation efforts, protecting Haiti’s natural heritage and empowering its people.

Kenya: Greening the Land, Empowering Communities: Kenya, a country celebrated for its stunning landscapes and diverse wildlife, faces numerous environmental challenges, including deforestation and desertification. By engaging in tree planting initiatives, companies can combat desertification, enhance carbon sequestration in expansive forests like the Maasai Mara, and uplift local communities through sustainable agroforestry practices. Investing in Kenya’s environmental future is not only a responsible choice but also an opportunity to promote social and economic well-being.
