An inspiring 75-year partnership with FatFace
60 trees, 100 acres, One future.
The National Forest is proud to announce a ground-breaking 75-year partnership with FatFace, the British lifestyle clothing and accessories retailer, who are helping us with our aim of growing a positive future for everyone.
The partnership has sustainability at its heart, involving the planting of 60,000 trees on 40 hectares of a new 100-hectare complex in the National Forest. The new woodland will sequester around 10,000 tonnes of carbon whilst also helping to enhance biodiversity, and support the wellbeing of our communities, helping us to a grow a greener, healthier and more sustainable future.
Just like the National Forest, FatFace are passionate about creating a positive future and are committed to sustainability. The innovative offsetting project aims to minimise carbon and helps towards their goal to achieve net zero emissions by 2025. Part of the FatFace Product, Planet and Community Strategy, their model involves reducing carbon emissions by at least 40% by 2025 and offsetting the remainder by planting trees and supporting carbon reduction initiatives.
Alongside this, they are also working to eliminate waste to landfill and single use plastics, as well as aiming to power their head office and all UK stores with renewable energy. You can find out more about FatFace and their journey to sustainability over on their website.Visit the FatFace website
This project is an important cornerstone of the FatFace strategy to become Carbon neutral by 2025. The National Forest are a great, like-minded partner where we have managed to create something that will make a meaningful long-term change to the environment.
We are delighted to be partnering with the FatFace Foundation and FatFace on supporting the creation of a new woodland which is capturing carbon, benefiting wildlife and supporting our communities. It is partnership with sustainability at its heart and one that is helping to grow the future together.
