At emotive we understand the effect that cars have on the world around us, so we are taking steps to ensure that we minimise the impact and offset carbon emissions as much as possible.
Over the course of its lifetime a tree offsets approximately 1 tonne of CO2. As part of our Green Legacy we commit to plant two trees for every car we source. This equates to two years’ worth of driving based on an average mileage of 10,000 km pa.
We display this symbol on the image/description of all cars we source. It denotes the number of trees that need to be planted to offset the CO2 emissions of a specific car for every year it is on the road based on a mileage of 10,000 pa.
Here in the UK we have one of the lowest coverage of forest throughout Europe equating to around 13% of the total land area. emotive positively impacts the environment by planting trees to offset the CO2 emissions of cars that it sources.
Together with our partner, Time4Trees, we plant two trees for every car we source:
Time4Trees is a company established by land restoration specialists Land Logical Ltd. Land Logical’s core business is restoring damaged land, such as landfills and other sites that need remediation or decontamination before they can sustain any productive use. This can typically involve substantial engineering operations to improve ground conditions, the production of green energy, and planting lots of trees! Land Logical carries years of experience in the project management
of landscape creation and remediation projects.
Time4Trees aims to give everyone the chance to make a difference, whether it be large or small, by using local trees to help solve a global, ongoing problem. The company creates new forests and environmental biodiversity in areas where this would otherwise not exist. By planting UK based trees that are currently all based in the South East of England where the carbon emissions are significantly high, reaching some of the worst levels in the country, Time4Trees is planting in the most crucial locations.
