Controlling Emissions for a Cleaner Climate

As part of our operations, Carbon Dioxide is inevitably generated through our combustion of fuels to generate electricity. As part of our commitment to reducing our environmental impact, Interplex strives to reduce our carbon emissions and offset our carbon footprint where possible.

As a forward-thinking leader at the forefront of trends, we have led the way in technology innovations for over 60 years. Simultaneously, we are uniquely positioned to contribute to efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Our technological expertise and commitment to the environment work hand in hand to deliver our top-notch solutions globally while meeting emissions-reduction targets, working towards achieving our long-term goal of sustainable development.

At present, we have already embarked on a journey to improve our energy consumption – through energy conservation efforts, improving operational efficiency, using more efficient equipment, installing solar panels and upgrading our lighting fixtures. This is just the beginning; we are also dedicated to offsetting our carbon footprint via these operational initiatives and more.

How Do Trees Contribute to the Environment?

Since 1990, worldwide carbon emissions has increased globally by 63%. A single mature tree can help to alleviate this, absorbing as much as 22kg (»48lbs) of CO2 per year.

They also bring about other benefits, such as:

  • Improving water quality – Their intricate root systems act as filters, helping to remove pollutants.
  • Preventing soil erosion – They slow down water absorption into the ground, preventing erosion, floods and landslides.
  • Encouraging sustainable forestry – Sustainable tree farming provides timber for buildings and heating purposes; fruit trees provide humans and animals with access to food.

Interplex’s Tree Planting Initiatives

We aim to actively make contributions to a cleaner, greener environment by promoting the planting and fostering of more green spaces at our properties and within our local communities.

We have set out to accomplish the following targets by the end of 2022:
  • Plant an additional 1,000 mature trees at our global properties
  • Plant 20,000 trees within our local communities through targeted partnerships

TREES PLANTED
The 20,269 trees on Interplex properties and sponsored by Interplex as of the end of 2021, have an estimated sequestered CO2 equivalent of 795.56 tonnes.

Italy 2021 – Dosolo, Mantua, Italy

The Po is the longest river that runs across northern Italy. The Lower Po and Po Delta are home to high biodiversity; however, they are most at risk due to flood frequency and rapid subsidence.

In support of the flood mitigation measures and re-nature initiatives along the Po Valley, Interplex has partnered One Tree Planted to afforest a land habitat in Dosolo, Mantua which has been designated as both a Natura 2000 and UNESCO MAB (Man and Biosphere) site. Under the Italy 2021 – Dosolo project, 8,840 trees will be planted. In addition, activities which promotes environmental education will be organized for volunteers and the local community to further support conservation in the area and the continuation of its protected state.

We are excited to see this afforestation project to completion by end 2021 and look forward to an overall improvement of the environment in north Italy.

Mauna Kea, Hawaii, USA

Mauna Kea is sacred to Hawaiians as it represents their unbroken lineage and connection to creation, to the sky, and Earth itself.

However, the land around the volcano is degrading and in need of environmental restoration so that it can once again become a suitable habitat for various endangered species of plants and animals, such as the Palila bird.

Mauna Dry Season Planting Area 

As part of Interplex’s ongoing tree-planting initiative with One Tree Planted, we are sponsoring 1,560 trees to restore this habitat. Native trees and shrubs will be planted on upper elevation sites to eliminate invasive and non-native species of wildlife. There trees will help to draw cloud cover and bring moisture back into area. And in return, help to reduce the risk of wildfires in the area.

We hope that our efforts contribute to a cleaner, greener environment and foster more green spaces for local communities around the world.

Blue Rush Reforestation, California, USA

We are actively participating in global reforestation projects, with the aim of improving the health and well-being of our surrounding communities and for the benefit of our future generations. In partnership with One Tree Planted, the CCI Blue Rush Reforestation project was completed on 1 June 2020, with 5,000 trees planted in the Blue Canyon of the High Sierra Ranger District of Central California, USA.
