Fuelled make a promise to plant 10,000 trees in 2021.
At the start of 2020 we made a pledge to plant 2,500 trees by the end of the year. Following some press and the support of our industry colleagues, we achieved this total in February. (You can read about how we did this here!)
For every insurance policy we sell, we’ll donate 1 tree. For every member of staff we employ, we plant 5 per month. This makes us the most carbon positive insurance broker in the UK. Something we’re super proud of, especially in an industry that is so dramatically affected by the impact of climate change.
To celebrate #WorldEarthDay we’ve now made a promise to plant 10,000 trees by the end of 2021. A goal that will see us offset over 200 tonnes of CO2 emissions. Saving over 500 square meters of sea ice and offsetting over 600,000 miles driven in a car.
Speaking on World Earth Day, Steven Darrah commented, “We made what we thought was a big pledge in January and even we were surprised by the impact we have made so far. Having surpassed our original goal in February we’ve decided to make a commitment to hit 10,000 by the end of the year. We’ll also be calling on other industry professionals to do their bit too, as it’s something that affects our industry more than others”
So far, Fuelled Group have planted over 4,000 trees in 2021. Our latest batch of 500 has been planted in Madagascar – you can view the forest here!
If you’d like to help us on our mission to plant 10,000 trees in 2021, you can donate to our eco-fuelled mission here.
Happy World Earth Day from all at Team Fuelled.
