ACT FOR OUR FORESTS
Every time you take a quad tour with us, you participate in a reforestation project. Thanks to you, 10 trees have been planted in Santervás de la Vega (Palencia, Spain) and 38 trees in Pankshin (Nigeria).
Each year we will calculate the CO2 emissions from our tours and plant twice as many trees as we need.
One of you and one of us.
OUR ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT
Quad Universe was born from the hand of a nature and motorsport lover. We believe that you can enjoy motor activities in nature with respect for the environment and we have always looked for ways to be respectful and grateful. This involves proposing an activity that is fully compatible with the tranquillity and cleanliness of the place, raising awareness of the state of the forests, cleaning and from 2021 with the 1+1 Project.
Plant twice as many trees as necessary to compensate for our activity.
To measure our impact and compensate for it we have calculated the carbon emissions generated by our routes in a year: 150g/km of C02 on average per quad. With this number in mind we can calculate after one season t
We have decided to go much further. We will not offset our C02 emissions but commit ourselves to plant twice as many trees as we need to cover the emissions of our activity. That's one tree from you and one tree from us.
Unlike big companies that offer to make this gesture as an option by charging you a tax, we do it without asking you anything in return. Well yes, we ask you to try to be a little bit more respectful of your environment every day 🙂
What we do concretely
With you, we planted 38 trees by 2023 in Pankshin (Nigeria)
In Nigeria, one of the most deforested countries in the world, forest cover and wildlife habitat are being decimated to make way for agricultural land, especially for oil palm production. At the same time, the need for wood energy and the development of urban areas contribute to the overexploitation of natural resources.
Northeast of the city of Pankshin, capital of Plateau State, this vast agroforestry and reforestation project plans to plant 720,000 trees over three years. Supported on the ground by the NGO CrescenDO, it covers several areas including a nature reserve, villages, plains and the banks of a river.
On the ground, the tree nursery, planting and maintenance are carried out by local communities, with technical support from CrescenDO. In the long term, this approach will contribute to preserving biodiversity, restoring forest ecosystems, preventing soil erosion and enhancing the carbon storage capacity of the Nigerian forest canopy.
At the socio-economic level, the project will give communities access to sustainably managed wood energy. As for the populations, they will be able to develop income-generating activities (marketing of the plants and fruits produced).
