The reforestation of this Great Ocean Road property was made possible thanks to the funding and support from Europcar, one of Greenfleet’s major supporters since 2007. Together with their customers, Europcar takes climate action and offset carbon emissions. Their donations for the past couple of years have been directed to this project.
“Since partnering with Greenfleet, we have given our customers the opportunity to take action and help protect and re-build koala habitats, thanks to our carbon offset program. We are proud of our ongoing initiatives and believe that we have a responsibility to act on climate change. We will see the environmental benefits continue for years to come, as the trees Greenfleet have planted on our behalf grow into forests absorbing over 44,000 tonnes of CO2-e,” commented Ionie Felmingham, Head of Marketing Europcar.
Peter and Bill said, “It is marvellous to see corporations making such a direct contribution to the reduction of greenhouse gases as well as overall improvement to our natural landscape. In the case of Europcar, where the contribution of their business to greenhouse gas is easily measured, we are delighted to be able to provide the land to help them offset these emissions. We hope that our governments might move more pro-actively in the same direction.”
"Diverse, healthy ecosystems are crucial to our long-term future."
The Wood brothers concluded, “We have knowledge today about the impacts of clearing that our forefathers did not have. Diverse, healthy ecosystems are crucial to our long-term future. There is growing community awareness and hence pressure to have more coordinated approaches to restoring ecosystems and we only hope this trend can continue to grow. Thanks for your partnership in this project!”
