Learn about our reforestation actions
Optimus Steel is a company committed not only to providing products able to meet the needs of our customers, who serve many different industries, but also committed to social and environmental responsibility. This has led us to undertake actions focused on giving back to our community and beyond..
This is why in the name or our customers, since 2020 we start supporting One Tree Planted, as part of our multiple initiatives to make a positive impact. This has also proven to be effective in motivating our team to become more aware of our relationship with the planet.
What is One Tree Planted?
One Tree Planted is a non-profit association dedicated to reforestation, present in North America, Latin America, Africa, Asia and Europe. One Tree Planted partners with individuals, schools and committed companies, just like us and our customers, to plant trees in different regions, with a recent focus on the reforestation needs in the United States.
An important volunteer base works day after day to improve our environment, one tree at a time. The goal of the association is global reforestation, and developing a simple process that allows people to take action in a simple way.
This non-profit association was established in 2014 and is present in 43 countries already, including of course the United States. More than 40 million new trees have been planted by One Tree Planted and partners.
Achievements of Optimus Steel & Customers:
In 2020, Optimus Steel partnered with One Tree Planted to undertake reforestation actions and promote a culture of environmental care among our employees and their families, a task achieved thanks to the strategic support of our customers.
Our way of supporting this cause is through donations, which are made on behalf of our customers. These donations have been made on a quarterly basis; since we partnered with One Tree Planted in 2020, more than 22,000 trees have been donated.
Planting the Future:
Our desire for the future is to continue supporting our customers, our employees, their families, the local community and the wider world by means of concrete and measurable actions, many of which we will share with you in future installments of this blog..
This 2022 we will continue working in collaboration with our customers and One Tree Planted so that our united efforts will go even further, something that we are sure to achieve with the support and dedication of our partners.
