We’re proud to have become a platinum supporter of The Queen’s Green Canopy. The QGC is a unique tree planting initiative created to celebrate Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022, inviting people across the UK to plant a tree for the jubilee. By inviting everyone to plant considerable numbers of new trees throughout the country, the QGC seeks to highlight the significant value of trees and woodlands as nature’s simple but highly-effective way to clean the air we breathe, slow the impact of climate change, create important wildlife habitats and improve our general health and wellbeing. Partnering with the QGC is an important step in contributing to our environmental, social, and governance work. The QGC’s ambitions of planting trees to create a better environment align with Howdens’ future commitment to becoming a carbon-neutral manufacturer and developing solutions to other problems such as plastic waste and polystyrene usage.
