Merkur UK Starts 2nd Phase of Environmental Programme 

Merkur UK announces the launch of its second stream of environmental activities – one that has it support a small-scale wind farm in Sri Lanka

According to the company, this wind farm will help in the avoidance of 2,000 tonnes of CO2. This is the equivalent of 1,535 long haul flights, which should save 6,000 square miles of sea ice or 4,962,000 car miles (7,985,564km). 

The Result of a Partnership with Ecologi 

Merkur UK joined forces with climate action platform Ecologi earlier this year. This partnership saw Merkur UK pay for the planting of 25,000 trees, extending its 2021 environmental initiative where it underwrote the costs of planting 1,500 trees in support of the National Trust’s Woodland Appeal

“The tree planting programme we have funded will see 25,000 trees established across 5,700 hectares in Southern Kenya. When you know that the 7-year target is over 14 million it becomes clear that projects such as this require lots of companies and organisations to do whatever they can.” Merkur UK director of Public and Political Relations Tony Boulton says. “The value of being a good corporate citizen is an important part of the culture which runs through Merkur and I’m delighted that we’ve been able to add to our initial support and to contribute to such a fantastic programme of work.”
