Amsterdam, Netherlands, 28 April – Faber Halbertsma Group (FHG) and Land Life Company launched a reforestation program with large-scale plantings in Spain. The trees will be planted in Tarilonte in the autonomous region of Castilla y León. The programme is part of the group’s overall sustainability and circularity strategy.
FHG’s sustainability strategy focuses on circularity and reducing CO2 emissions. Among other things, the group uses circular pooling solutions to reduce CO2 emissions as much as possible. Because it is not yet possible to completely exclude emissions, the company also chooses to plant trees.
“Sustainability is a spearhead in our strategy for the coming years. We see the cooperation with Land Life Company as an important part of this. After all, planting trees is the most effective way to extract CO2 from the air. And it goes without saying that these trees will not be used to make pallets later on,” according to Erik Faber of the Faber Halbertsma Group.

To ensure tangible climate impact, FHG will plant around 30,000 trees on approximately 33 hectares of degraded land in Spain. The organizations are planting in Spain specifically because it is one of the hardest hit European countries affected by desertification.
Land Life Company tracks the trees planted at various locations so that growth and CO2 capture can be closely monitored.
“We are very happy that FHG supports us in reforesting land where nature cannot come back on its own accord. In this way they do more than just compensate for their CO2 emissions. They are restoring nature and important ecosystems,” said Sander Keulen, head of business development at Land Life Company.
