#EptaExperience is the way for your 2019: Epta supports Treedom for the reforestation of Veneto

21/12/2018

A gift for the community under this year’s Christmas tree, which will start bearing fruits in late 2019. In line with its policy of social responsibility, implemented with the Corporate Social Responsibility Report, Epta is committed to creating a business forest to support the planting of woods in the Veneto region of Northern Italy. The Group is historically present in the area with the Costan and Eurocryor brands and the production sites of Limana in the province of Belluno and Solesino in the province of Padova.

The region was struck by a violent storm in November, which damaged 100,000 hectares and brought down millions of trees. The project is implemented in association with Treedom, an Italian platform set up to finance small-scale agro forestry systems with native trees, respecting biodiversity and responding to ten of the Sustainable Development Goals promoted by the UN.

 

Epta joined the Treedom initiative creating a business forest of 100 indigenous plants. Upon conclusion of the site verifications, in association with Veneto Agricoltura to cover the areas of greater priority, the planting process will begin.

 

With the reforestation of woods in Veneto, Epta invests in the protection of biodiversity and in the contrast of soil erosion, safeguarding the ecosystem and landscape heritage, inheritance for the generations to come.
