Biodiversity for Business

Global climate change is placing increasing pressure on trees and forests. Development and logging also pose a threat alongside many other causes. Some natural causes of deforestation are drought, climate change and wildfires, while artificial causes can be industrial agriculture, logging, mining and urbanisation.

Worldwide initiatives to save the environment through tree planting are emerging in response to these issues and to aid the removal of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Jeff Bezos, the creator of Amazon, has committed $2 billion to forest restoration. A Latin American e-commerce business raised $400 million in bonds for the restoration of forests in 2021. More and more travellers are seeking methods to reduce the amount of CO2 they release into the atmosphere by funding the preservation or restoration of forests.

Hely Hutchinson Training – A well-known and internationally operating Financial Services Training consultancy, has a customer base across Europe and the USA but their Trainers must travel to client locations by air. To recognise their impact on the environment they plant a tree for every flight. So many of their clients and connections applaud this commitment and while travel is a necessary component of their business, they are planting trees to invest in the long-term health of the environment and Ireland’s natural heritage.

Collaborating with local organisations who specialise in tree planting and rewilding is a feasible, convenient way for your business to boast its dedication in helping the environment. Companies such as Irish Trees offer tree planting subscriptions or once off plantings for organisations and/or individuals to do their part helping nature recover. 

Irish Trees collaborate with Dunsany Nature Reserve on a rewilding project. They will help you meet your organisation’s green goals and the trees you fund will be planted on your behalf or you have the option to head out and join them at Dunsany Castle and Nature Reserve for a planting day with your team and customers. They will support you with Marketing Elements, Weblinks, Certifications, and Green Tenders.

Getting involved with a biodiversity initiative can benefit your business in several ways:

  • Environmental Stewardship: Supporting biodiversity initiatives demonstrates your company’s commitment to environmental sustainability. By participating in efforts to protect and preserve biodiversity, you contribute to the health of ecosystems and the planet as a whole.
  • Positive Brand Image: Involvement in biodiversity initiatives can enhance your company’s reputation and brand image. Consumers are increasingly concerned about environmental issues and prefer to support businesses that demonstrate social and environmental responsibility.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Many regions have regulations and policies related to biodiversity conservation. Getting involved in biodiversity initiatives can help ensure compliance with relevant laws and regulations, reducing the risk of legal and reputational issues.
  • Innovation and Competitive Advantage: Biodiversity initiatives often involve collaboration with various stakeholders, including researchers, NGOs, and other businesses. Engaging in such initiatives can stimulate innovation within your company and provide opportunities for collaboration that may lead to competitive advantages.
  • Long-Term Sustainability: Biodiversity is essential for the stability and resilience of ecosystems, which ultimately support human societies and economies. By investing in biodiversity initiatives, you contribute to long-term sustainability, which can benefit your business by ensuring a stable operating environment by making a positive impact on the planet.
  • Access to Resources and Networks: Involvement in biodiversity initiatives provides opportunities to access valuable resources, expertise, and networks. Collaboration with NGOs, research institutions, and other stakeholders can offer insights and opportunities that may not be available otherwise.
  • Employee Engagement and Satisfaction: Many employees are passionate about environmental issues and appreciate opportunities to contribute to meaningful causes through their work. Involvement in biodiversity initiatives can boost employee morale, engagement, and satisfaction.

Overall, getting involved in trees for businesses aligns with broader environmental, social, and governance (ESG) considerations and can contribute to the long-term success and sustainability of your business.
