In 2012 Kernow Coatings supported the planting and lifetime care of 1,040 trees at Portscatho on the Tregothnan Estate in Cornwall as part of the Woodland Trust’s Jubilee Woods Project. You can see more about the project here, http://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/en/jubilee-woods/about/Pages/our-aims.aspx#.UVMIvhzIY20. We are delighted that the Project has reached its overall target of 6 million trees planted in honour of Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. For 2013 the work goes on, and we are supporting the restoration and further planting of woodland at the Ivybridge, near Plymouth in Devon. One of the many benefits of woodland creation is the ability of trees to absorb carbon in addition to creating homes for wildlife. What is important to us is that trees are not merely planted, but also looked after to grow to maturity and so perform a valuable rôle as carbon sinks. We believe the Woodland Trust is the best custodian of this philosophy and are pleased to work together with them.

There is always room for improvement, so environmental actions will always be a 'Work in Progress', but we have pleasure in releasing our Environmental Policy Statement, which are the guidelines by which we work.
