'Every square metre of Marmoleum' used now contributes to restoring Australian native forests.
CNCF plants native trees creating long term carbon sinks which in addition to capturing carbon provide habitat and protection of local native species.
By using natural and carbon neutral Marmoleum flooring, construction projects can now minimise their carbon footprint and help restore Australian native landscapes at the same time.
Forbo's tagline, 'creating better environments,' expresses the awareness and effort to contribute to a better world for people and the environment in which we live. As a company, we are committed to meeting our obligations to future generations and acting in a sustainable way.
Manufacturing a product that is naturally carbon neutral and working with an organisation like CNCF to replant native trees and shrubs is just one way we can make a positive and real difference to the built and natural local environment.
The Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund is a not for profit organisation and uses the funds raised through donations and carbon offsets to plant native trees on degraded land in Australia. CNCF reforestation projects sequester carbon whilst helping to restore the landscape and conserve the natural biodiversity.
CNCF also conduct vital research about Australian natural bushland. Since 2001 CNCF has planted over 5.4 million trees across 3,812 hectares and 160 sites. Carbon Neutral Charitable Fund (CNCF) helps individuals, families, and organisations to minimise their impact on the environment.
Their MISSION ... to assist the community to adopt a more sustainable approach to a healthy environment and to reduce greenhouse gas (carbon) emissions.”
CNCF restores degraded land in Australia back to its natural state by planting native endemic species of trees and shrubs. Seeds are collected and harvested locally to ensure plantings support the natural biodiversity of the local area.
See how the CNCF have restored 80 hectares of cleared agricultural land.
The 2017 planting covered 34 hectares of cleared land on the eastern side of the site, suited to a mixed Eucalyptus wandoo and Acacia acuminata and a further 46 hectares of pasture land present in the Mallee Belt paddock planted to a Eucalypt woodland system.Badgebup Project
