3,250 trees planted in
SSW's climate pledge
12 January 2022
Smith Stone Walters recently announced that we have partnered with environmental organisation Ecologi to help us become a climate positive workforce.
We understand that climate change is a major crisis facing our planet, and we want to do our bit to tackle the problem by planting trees for every visa instruction we receive.
We are delighted to now reveal that as of the end of December 2021, we have now planted a total of 3,250 trees and offset 20 tonnes of carbon through this project. That’s equivalent of 49,628 miles driven in the average car!
Each month, more trees will appear in the ‘SSW Forest’ as our immigration consultants take on new cases for our clients. You can keep an eye on our progress by visiting our Ecologi profile here.
Our climate pledge
Immigration is our business, and it’s what we do best. That’s why we have chosen to give back to the environment by planting trees for every visa instruction we receive.
Our pledge is simple: every time a client instructs us on an immigration case, we will plant five trees on their behalf. So when you or your employees uproot, engaging SSW to work on your case will have a positive impact on the environment.
Through our reforestation project, we are aiming to plant 250,000 trees by 2030.
Ecologi is an environmental organisation based in the UK that funds reforestation projects. Ecologi works with tree planting partners who responsibly plant the trees on our behalf.
The project also provides fair-wage employment by hiring local villagers to grow, plant and guard the forest restoration sites, providing a consistent income to poverty-stricken communities.
