Carbery, in conjunction with SWS Forestry, has announced the latest phase of the Carbery Tree Project whereby a further 12,000 native Irish trees will be given free to West Cork farmers for planting on their farms.
The initiative, which is the first of its kind for Ireland’s dairy industry, was first launched by Carbery in March 2016 and aims to address climate change at a local level by offsetting carbon emissions.
Local farmers are given 20 trees each for planting on their farms in an initiative to address climate change at a local level: offsetting carbon emissions, and increasing biodiversity. So far the project has involved all 1,314 suppliers across the four West Cork Co-ops.
Carbery Group has invested significantly in supporting its sustainability programme and is fully committed to continuing its strong focus on improving the environment and promoting sustainability.
