In cooperation with „myclimate – The Climate Protection Partnership“ we fight for natural conservation.

By designing our office in an enviroment friendly way we aim to decrease our carbon dioxide impact and ensure climate neutrality.

Based on all internal processes FreightHubs carbon footprint was calculated. From that an annual compensation was determined which is donated to a Climate Protection Program in Nicaragua. Our Team will now support community reforestation in order to reforest underutilised portions of the land.

We hope to create solidarity among communities, provide opportunities for families to earn extra income and build environmental awareness among subsistence farmers.

Elsa Gonzales, Head Community Technician and Office manager Taking Roots Nicaragua

In this community-based reforestation initiative in the Platanares watershed in the municipality of San Juan de Limay, Nicaragua, smallholder farming families collaborate to reforest underutilised portions of their land. Thanks to better land-use management and more sustainable use of forest resources the forest cover of the nearby watershed will be increased and the quality of life of Limay residents will be improved.

  • 409 smallholder families, from 68 participating communities, have reforested an area of 1,500 ha, this equals 2,100 soccer fields.
  • These families planted 2 million trees.
  • 2,645 jobs
  • USD 860,000 community payments made to date, this equals 650 local annual salaries
  • An additional USD 730,000 will be dispersed to the same farmers for taking care of the trees in the next few years.
  • 346,000 t CO2 issued, this equals the annual emissions of over 90,000 cars.
