Total UK Limited, affiliate of TotalEnergies, has joined forces with Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust to support the planting of three hundred trees in 2021 across the Yorkshire Dales.
The long-term partnership, which is expected to run for the next three years and beyond, will see Total UK Limited planting lots more native broad leaf trees over the coming years.
The launch of the partnership coincides with the recent rebrand of Total to TotalEnergies and its mission to become a broad energy company committed to producing and providing energies that are more affordable, clean, reliable and accessible to as many people as possible.
Total UK Limited is committed to corporate social responsibility and supporting the local communities and environments it works in. The initiative with Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust is part of Total UK’s Action! Foundation employee volunteering programme through which employees are given the time and resources to make a difference in society by offering their skills, mentoring capabilities, or a helping hand.
The tree planting activity took place at Ormsgill woodland, a natural wetland habitat in the Dales that is home to a diverse range of native plants and wildlife. As part of the partnership, Total UK Limited employees will also be able to get hands-on with nature and get involved with a range of projects from dry stone walling to woodland maintenance and springtime lambing.
