In 2015, Guala Closures began its commitment to a three-year reforestation project in Colombia, devised and coordinated by Up2green Reforestation – a French NGO.
This project, which was 100% funded by Guala Closures, has three objectives:
- Planting 100,000 fruit and timber trees to compensate 15,000 tonnes of Carbon dioxide
- Generate income for local population involved in the reforestation activities, while contributing towards the education and awareness of climate change
- Preserving the wealth of local biodiversity while safeguarding the Amazon forest and recovering soils in the Andes Mountains
