Case Study

Turning carbon into forests with LeasePlan


In 2017 LeasePlan, one of the world’s leading car leasing companies, announced an ambitious 10+ year sustainability strategy that firmly places the company at the forefront of the green revolution in the automotive industry. 

By 2030, LeasePlan is targeting net zero emissions from its entire fleet (1.8 Million cars across 30 countries).

An important piece of LeasePlan’s sustainability strategy will be their new partnership with Landlife, as they work together to turn carbon emissions into healthy forests in northern Spain and Texas, USA.


Stories from the field


Tracking impact from above

To assess, plan and monitor large-scale reforestation projects like this, we use high-tech drones and satellite imagery to build an accurate picture of the impact over time.

Measuring success

The first phase of the planting took place in March 2018 and after a scorching summer the survival rate of the trees is 96% with no irrigation after planting.
