Environmental project sees the planting of 25,000 trees

MERKUR UK is an active supporter of the environment funding a responsible tree planting programme

MERKUR UK has underlined its credentials as one of land-based gaming’s most progressive corporate citizens by joining-up with Ecologi, a leading climate action platform.

The links with Ecologi, have resulted in MERKUR financing the planting of 25,000 trees – an initiative which follows the 2021 partnership supporting the National Trust’s Woodland Appeal.

Tony Boulton, MERKUR UK’s Director of Public and Political Relations explained that the association with the National Trust and this year’s latest initiative with Ecologi are part of the company’s broader 360 social purpose program.

He noted: “The 360 Program was established with a remit to address broad social responsibility issues not least those related to the environment.

“The Ecologi platform has more than 40,000 customers funding tree planting and high quality climate solutions all of which are independently certified.

“The planting of trees is crucial on many different levels: it helps improve valuable habitats, increases biodiversity and it makes an impact on carbon emissions that contribute to climate change.

“In two years Ecologi has succeeded in tripling its funding of trees to an amazing 65 million!

“MERKUR UK is delighted to be able to contribute to such a fantastic programme of work and I’m looking forward to working together on this initiative and exploring how we can build on it moving forward.”
