Employees of Messe Erfurt and German Association for the Protection of Forests and Woodlands planted 560 trees
Lived sustainability: On Saturday, 22th November 2014, the employees of Messe Erfurt planted trees at the climate woodland Schwansee. This event symbolically represents the comprehensive sustainability efforts of the company. The aim is to establish itself as climate-neutral meeting location with climate-neutral events. Apart from the "Messe Erfurt trees" 500 climate-trees were planted by the German Association for the Protection of Forests and Woodlands. ThüringenForst is the official partner of the initiative KlimaWald and cares for the trees.
The public was also invited to this planting event. Purchase and planting of one tree was only 10.00 Euros. The forestry commission office informed people on-site about its activites and offered bush meat delicacies.
