Tree Planting Program (2021)


McCorry has for the last 6 years operated its offices worldwide with a carbon neutral footprint by purchasing carbon credits from a forestry project in Kalimantan (Indonesian Borneo).

This year we included the carbon footprint of our team and their families, i.e., to cover the amount of fuel they use to drive to work and the electricity they use at home (the latter because many of us have been working from home).

Instead of buying carbon credits this year we decided to collaborate with the Sabah Forestry Department under their 36 million Tree Planting Program to off-set our carbon footprint and to create a more sustainable environment.

McCorry has committed to plant 1,000 seedlings of bayur and seraya species (both indigenous rainforest trees) in the Hampuan Forest Reserve, Ranau district, Sabah (about 3 hours’ drive from our head office). The 1,000 trees will cover approximately 3 hectares (7.5 acres) of land.
On 11th and 12th December 2021, our team of 32 managed to plant 453 trees in the forest under difficult weather conditions.

McCorry will continue to complete the remaining commitment in 2022 and it will be an on-going initiative as part of our company culture and commitment to the environment.
