What is the "RWM Forest"?
RWM Forest is a fantastic initiative with Forest Carbon that aims to offset the unavoidable carbon created to make a trade show of this scale possible.
Our non-financial partnership with Forest Carbon was created in a bid to help reduce the environmental impact of our exhibition.
Who are Forest Carbon?
Forest Carbon are the UK’s leading carbon woodland developer who plant new UK woodland for capturing excess carbon and creating new ecosystems. Since 2006, Forest Carbon’s partners (including Microsoft and Kier) have created projects that have removed over 1.4 million tonnes of CO2 from the Nation’s air - and RWM want to contribute to future carbon capture by creating the RWM Forest.
Why are we doing this?
To offset all unavoidable carbon emitted over the course of the event. On current predictions, by 2029, RWM Forest will be 10 acres of woodland, containing around 10,000 trees; which will enable Future Resource to be carbon neutral in 10 years.
Did you know vegetation removed an estimated 1,298.9 thousand tonnes of pollutants from UK air in 2017? According to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
As an important player in the centre of a vital industry for the ongoing battle with climate change, we want to reduce our footprint where possible, and we welcome any initiatives to further our commitment to sustainability.
Where is the RWM Forest going to be?
We have our own patch of land in the UK’s Lake District.
When is the scheme starting?
It is ongoing. As more and more exhibitors sign up, the more trees Forest Carbon will plant.
How to plant your tree.
The RWM Forest will grow with each new exhibitor and sponsor we receive. What’s more, it doesn’t cost you anything - consider it an added bonus for becoming part of our show.
From the moment you join Future Resource Expo, we will assign a tree in your name for Forest Carbon to plant.
You will receive an official Forest Carbon PDF certificate and we will also provide you with all the artwork you need to proudly promote your involvement.
