Aduro plants trees
Forests are the most effective tool we currently have for absorbing CO2 out of the atmosphere. Forest can be said to be the lungs of our earth, and according to The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), forests are the most important tool in reducing our CO2 footprint.
That is why Aduro invests in forest. We invest in 400 hectares of forest in Lithuania, which we operate in a sustainable way, meaning that we are constantly maintaining a growth in wood pulp and replanting trees. On a yearly basis, we expect a sustainable growth of wood equivalent to the consumption in 10,000 Aduro stoves.
Planting and natural regeneration
The operation of the forest is done in collaboration with the Danish company Hedeselskabet, which has extensive experience with sustainable forestry with a focus on green innovation, nature conservation, environmental improvement and climate adaptation. When we rejuvenate the forest, i.e., restore it after felling, we use a combination of methods, depending on the environment in the forest floor and the surroundings. We follow and support nature - we use the natural seed fall from selected trees, and this natural regeneration yields up to 10,000 trees per hectare. In areas where the natural regeneration has more difficulty succeeding, we plant new trees.
During the operation of the forest, you can regularly take out wood, which can be used for a wide range of purposes, e.g., as a replacement for more CO2-heavy materials such as oil, coal, steel and concrete.
CO2 neutral heating with firewood
Firing with wood is an environmentally friendly way to heat your home. Firewood is CO2-neutral and thus the world's most climate friendly raw material. By firing with firewood, you hardly pollute the atmosphere with extra CO2, as trees store CO2 while they grow. When the wood is burned, the same amount of CO2 is released again, which is then absorbed by other trees. Through restoring of forest and sustainable forestry, the growth of trees and forests is also ensured.
