DS Smith planting more than 50,000 new trees across Europe and North America

We’re partnering with One Tree Planted to plant more than 50,000 new trees across Europe and North America over the next five years as part of our commitment to protecting biodiversity and supporting the natural environment.

This partnership is a new addition to the existing forestry and tree planting activity across our company. We’re committed to protect forests and enhance biodiversity wherever we operate by 2025.

Through the DS Smith Charitable Foundation, we agreed to fund a tree for each of our 29,000 employees this year.

The first wave of 15,000 trees will be planted in forests in Western Jutland, Denmark and in the Nucsoara commune of Argeș County, Romania. The remaining 14,000 trees for this year have been earmarked for other planting initiatives in Europe and North America.

Diana Chaplin, Canopy Director at One Tree Planted – “We’re proud to work with partners dedicated to taking real action for the environment. These reforestation efforts will help to further DS Smith’s dedication to sustainability, mitigating the effects of climate change while restoring the land for biodiversity and the long-term health of forests.”
