STARK Group initiates campaign to ensure reforestation and preserve biodiversity
STARK Group’s German roofing and facade specialist, Melle Gallhöfer, has partnered with the organisation PLANT-MY-TREE to contribute to sustainable forest management, reforestation and increasing biodiversity. Together with its customers and PLANT-MY-TREE, Melle Gallhöfer will plant 10,000 new trees in a protected area in the western part of Germany.
Climate change is one of the primary causes of biodiversity loss. Together with PLANT-MY-TREE, Melle Gallhöfer and its customers contribute to ensuring sustainable forestry and preserving biodiversity. For every purchase of timber or a timber-based product, a tree will be planted to support reforestation and the conversion of local forests into species-rich deciduous forests adapted to climate change.
Roughly a quarter of STARK Group’s sourced products, measured in monetary terms, is timber or timber-based, making responsible sourcing of timber and timber products of prime importance to the Group.
As part of the campaign, the trees are between three and five years, at the height of around 80 to 110 cm and will be planted in areas that have been secured and intensively cared for, for at least 99 years.
The project started on 1 August 2022 and will continue until the 10,000 trees have been planted.
