HP Inc and UK vendor partner SCC have planted 500 trees in the country’s New Forest National Park in cooperation with Forestry England.
Senior leadership from HP and SCC invited colleagues to join them at the specially arranged tree planting day on 7 February. The event included talks from experts at Forestry England and HP on the importance of biodiversity and forests.
To date, HP has planted more than 60,000 trees in the UK and Ireland, with more planned for this spring planting season. These local initiatives form part of HP’s global target of planting one million trees in 2023.
HP’s UK and Ireland Channel Director Neil MacDonald commented: “Restoring and protecting the world’s trees and forests will be crucial in the battle against climate change and Britain’s declining biodiversity. We’re committed to ensuring a forest positive future in the right way, by partnering with experts in reforestation like Forestry England to maintain and enhance a local area’s existing natural biodiversity.”
