Italtrike’s commitment to sustainability never ends and today it focuses on reaching a new important goal: reducing the company’s ecological footprint in ten years and offsetting it with a high-impact reforestation programme. With your support we can make our idea of environmental and social sustainability even more effective. In fact, for every Italtrike product purchased, you will contribute to the creation of an agroforesty plantation in Guatemala. A combination of forest and fruit trees and annual crops to preserve the richness of the soil. An extraordinary gesture to help our future and the one of our children grow.
Becoming a carbon neutral company in ten years. This is the approach Italtrike has taken in order to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions, starting with a technical calculation of the amount of CO2 produced by each individual company activity up to tricycles and ride-ons delivery to sales points. We are actively working towards climate neutrality by 2030, through a more efficient management of all production processes and the investment in a major reforestation project.
This extraordinary journey towards carbon neutrality has been achieved thanks to a partnership with zeroCO2, which works on sustainability through reforestation projects. With their help, part of the proceeds from the sale of Italtrike products will be used to plant the first 500 fruit trees in Guatemala, offsetting 317,550 kg of CO2 emissions over 15 years. The entire activity is tracked by a sophisticated geo-localisation system, which monitors the trees’ growth and follows the budding of the first fruits. A commitment for the environment, but also for many farming families, who will be able to economically support themselves by cultivating the trees.
