DC tree planting initiative to reduce carbon footprint!
We are delighted to learn that DC Warewashing and Icemaking Systems have announced that for each warewasher or icemaker sold this year by the company, a tree will be planted through a global reforestation platform. DC provide quality reliable Commercial Glass and Dishwasher & an extensive range of Ice Machines.
This is their statement
“This new decade will see the company looking at how it can reduce its impact on the planet. Planting trees helps increase CO2 capture through a plant’s growth, this initiative gives our customers confidence that their purchase is playing a part in reducing the negative effects caused by deforestation across the world.
“As proud sponsors of the Catering Insight Award for Distributor of the Year – Corporate Social Responsibility, this fantastic award has helped inspire us to further consider ways of minimising DC’s impact on the world,” says Bob Wood, Director at DC Warewashing and Icemaking Systems. “We’re always looking at different ways of making our products more sustainable. All our machines are manufactured to reduce energy consumption and water usage, offsetting some of the energy used in their manufacture by planting trees is yet another way we can reduce our company’s impact on the planet.”
Planting trees not only increases carbon absorption, it also contributes to:
- Improved air quality,
- Prevention of species extinction,
- Providing employment for people in deprived areas of the world.
“We are encouraging companies that sell our products to display the new ‘DC Tree Planted’ logo alongside our product photos on their websites and product literature,” said Bob. “This will help environmentally conscious customers to easily choose the best machine that aligns with their ethics.”
