Communities thrive around healthy forests

Historically, the woods have played an important role in the development of the city of Larvik; home to many of our employees and our HQ. Larvik is famous for its 100% natural mineral water, Farris, filtered entirely though the Beech Forest. Our employees and leaders understand how important a healthy forest can be for local business and the surrounding citizens.   

Another reason why we decided to invest in a reforestation initiative.  

We have already funded the growth of 75 000 trees in Malawi through assisted natural regeneration initiatives and our goal is to grow another 25 000 every single quarter of 2020. That’s 100 000 trees by the end of the year and we dedicate each and every one of these trees, and all the impact associated with each one, to our customers who are using our technology to be greener too.

We have partnered with WeForest

Dense forest used to cover a third of Malawi. Now, 65% of those 3.4 million hectares have been cleared due to an over-reliance on the natural environment. Firewood, construction wood and charcoal are just some of the ways in which the the local community has utilized their surroundings to sustain their livelihoods.

This relationship has unfortunately led to devastating deforestation and it is only forecasted to continue with the rising population. WeForest is working with the Malawian government, Forestry Department, The Mulajne Mountain Conservation Trust as well as 10 local community nurseries and beekeeping clubs all in a combined effort to conserve the forest biodiversity, restore 2 types of forest, create employment and alternative sources of income for the local communities and stop the current deforestation.
