We're Planting Trees To Offset Our CO2 Emissions

Trees are fundamental pillars of our planet, serving crucial roles for both humanity and the environment. They contribute to the purification of water and air, as well as the creation of improved social conditions. Furthermore, they provide habitats for diverse forms of life, assist in regulating climate temperatures, and enhance soil quality. At Infinity3 we are committed to offsetting our CO2 emissions for ourselves and our clients.

We have partnered with Tree-Nation who assist citizens and companies to plant trees all around the world and offset their CO2 emissions.

Why Should We Plant Trees?

Benefits Of Planting Trees For Humans

Planting trees offers numerous benefits for humans, including providing clean air, reducing stress, and enhancing overall well-being.

Purification: Trees cleanse water and decrease the speed of rainfall by filtering it through their roots. This mechanism helps prevent erosion and lowers the likelihood of saturation and flooding.

Water Provision: Approximately one-third of the world's major cities depend on protected forest regions for a substantial portion of their drinking water supply. This includes cities like New York and Singapore.

 

Oxygen Generation: Trees and forests are often likened to the "planet's lungs" because they generate oxygen. It's estimated that 1 acre of trees can fulfil the oxygen needs of 12 individuals for a year.

Gas Absorption: Besides capturing CO2, trees also take in detrimental pollutant gases such as sulphur dioxide, ozone, ammonia, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxides.

Temperature Regulation: Trees lower the ambient temperature by offering shade and through transpiration cooling, a process where water droplets released from their leaves cool the surroundings as they evaporate.

Medical Properties: Numerous medicines are sourced from the bark, leaves, and flowers of diverse tree species. These are commonly utilised in herbal medicine, and many compounds in the pharmaceutical industry are derived from substances originally extracted from trees.

Developing World: A significant number of the world’s most impoverished individuals reside in proximity to forested areas. Resources obtained from these forests, including food, beverages, and materials, can comprise up to 28% of total household income in certain tropical and subtropical zones.

Mental Health: Research has indicated that trees and natural environments can enhance mental well-being and cognitive function in both healthy individuals and those grappling with mental health conditions.

Benefits Of Planting Trees For The Environment

Planting trees contributes to the environment by mitigating climate change, improving air quality and supporting biodiversity.

Habitats: Forests sustain around 80% of the planet's land-based biodiversity, encompassing small invertebrates to large mammals.

Insect Life: Trees also provide habitats for numerous insect populations, with certain trees like birch and willow hosting over 300 insect species.

Biodiversity Preservation: The clearance of closed tropical rainforests could result in the extinction of up to 100 species per day.

Carbon Capture: Natural forests sequester CO2, serving as carbon reservoirs. Annually, forests and trees soak up approximately 2 billion tonnes of CO2, accounting for about one-third of all CO2 emissions stemming from the combustion of fossil fuels.

Carbon Storage: Deforestation exacerbates climate change by releasing CO2 stores. Around 18% of global emissions result from deforestation (5-10 GtCO2e), surpassing the emissions from the entire transportation sector worldwide.

Protection: Trees reduce the susceptibility of soil to erosion, and their canopy offers shielding for the ground below.

Nutrient Recycling: Tree debris, such as fallen leaves, facilitates the recycling of nutrients between the trees and the soil.

Soil Structure: The roots of trees not only loosen the topsoil and enhance subsoil porosity but also provide a consistent supply of carbon from perennial trees, benefiting the soil microorganisms that bind soil particles together, thus improving its structure.

More About Tree-Nation

Tree-Nation’s mission is to fight Climate Change and Deforestation. They facilitate tree planting projects globally, although their main focus is on the tropic region. Trees in this region grow much faster so they capture CO2 faster. This is also where heavy deforestation is happening and where 85% of our terrestrial biodiversity is threatened, with many species on the brink of extinction.

They have made the experience of planting a tree super easy and fun so that more and more people join the cause to reforest the world. After virtually planting your tree, you can find all the information regarding the real tree: the species details, its location and a link to the tree certificate.

“Worldwide, we have now destroyed over half of the forest that once flourished on our planet. Not only are we losing the animals that once lived on them, we're also changing the climate of the entire globe.”

We Plant A Tree For Every Care Plan!

1 Care Plan = 1 Tree Planted

At Infinity3, we sought to do more than just offset our website and team's CO2 emissions. This led us to introduce a special offer: gifting a tree to every new customer. Upon signing up for one of our Care Plans, customers receive a digital link to plant their own tree, creating a meaningful impact on the environment.

Team CO2 Offset

We have partnered up with Tree-Nation, an organization dedicated to fighting climate change and reforesting the world. Through their support, we quantify the emissions associated with our activities, such as office space, workplace electricity, meals, office supplies and local commuting, and translate this data into the planting of trees on a global scale.

Website CO2 Offset

We take environmental responsibility seriously. We have implemented a program to offset the CO2 emissions generated by our website. This involves planting a specific number of trees, and the quantity is directly linked to the volume of website visits we receive. By doing so, we not only mitigate our carbon footprint but also contribute to reforestation efforts.
