Online offsetting company Treedom has announced three million trees have been planted worldwide using its platform.
The digital tree-planting service was boosted by a €10 million (£8.3m) investment from former Formula 1 champion Nico Rosberg and Italian footballer Giorgio Chiellini, helping the company become one of the fastest growing European companies according to the Financial Times.
The business plants trees alongside farmers annual and seasonal crops and revealed that in 2021 it gained more than 72,000 new project members worldwide.
More than 100,000 users have used the platform to plant trees, with 8,000 companies including Samsung working with Treedom to enhance their sustainability aims.
CEO Federico Garcea said: “Three million trees not only mean absorbing even more carbon but together with our partners and public support, we have also brought important social and economic benefits to the local communities, where farmers can generate a source of income for their families.
“Treedom goes beyond just planting trees and collaborates with local communities to ultimately find the right tree for the right place and the right purpose.”
