REF X TREEDOM
We believe in a sustainable world where the carbon footprint of our products is limited. Therefore, REF has introduced a cooperation with Treedom to plant the REF forest. By planting trees - as the tree grows, it will absorb CO2, protect the soil and enable biodiversity. This is what our climate compensation is about.
Through plantation of forests, REF compensates the carbon emission of our products. To reach the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), we all must play our part - and at REF we work with dedication to reduce our CO2 footprint. Since all the trees have a geolocation via Treedom, you can track in real-time the progress of our plantations in Nepal, Kenya and Colombia.
