HIES are pleased to announce their partnership with JUST ONE Tree, a non-profit initiative that removes CO2 from the atmosphere and reverses biodiversity loss through global reforestation.
JUST ONE Tree plant trees in areas severely affected by deforestation to maximise the effect on limiting global warming. In the process they help to provide agricultural education and sustainable incomes to local communities.
JUST ONE Tree plant in Madagascar, Haiti, Kenya, Mozambique, Indonesia, Nepal and Zambia. The reason why JUST ONE Tree plant in these areas is because scientific evidence suggests that planting forests nearer the equator has the greatest cooling effect on the planet.
As a partner of JUST ONE Tree, every time a HIES member completes a job on the HIES portal, one tree will be planted by JUST ONE Tree.
To plant the trees, JUST ONE Tree have teamed up with a network of reforestation partners in specific poverty-stricken locations where they hire and train the local community members to plant the trees. The community members protect their new forests by watering, weeding, maintaining, and monitoring the trees. Since their inception, JUST ONE Tree has seen over 980,000 trees planted across 4 continents.
Amanda Bronkhorst, Founder of JUST ONE Tree, comments:
“JUST ONE Tree is based on the power of collective impact, so I’m thrilled that HIES is joining us. Together we’ll be able to have an even greater impact on tackling climate change and restoring our planet.”
Faisal Hussain, HIES Chief Executive, comments:
“We are thrilled to partner with JUST ONE Tree. At HIES we receive a high number of completed jobs on the HIES portal every day so we are pleased that together with our installer base and JUST ONE Tree that each and every completed job will contribute to global reforestation.
It’s great for consumers knowing that when using a HIES member for their renewable installation that a tree will be planted on their behalf. The work that JUST ONE Tree does will have such a positive impact on the fight against climate change.”
