The OCP Charity Foundation has created 2.5 hectares of forest in collaboration with the Buitenfonds and Staatsbosbeheer. The donation from The OCP Charity Foundation has made it possible to plant more than 8,000 trees on this plot. The planting results in a CO2 reduction of 30 tons of CO2-eq per year. In addition to the reduction, the forest also gives an impulse to the biodiversity of the environment. Staatsbosbeheer will manage the forest for at least 50 years.
