1% for Biodiversity

BrightWind has committed 1% of its annual revenue to nature based solutions for biodiversity loss, native tree deforestation and climate change.

Climate change is now a reality. And its not just climate change that is a reality. We are acidifying the oceans, losing sea ice, losing arable land and deforesting the planet at an alarming rate. Not just that, we are going through the 6th biggest mass extinction event the planet has ever faced. The last time this occurred was when a meteorite hit the dinosaurs!

But each of these problems are not the problem, they are symptoms of the problem. The actual problem is the globalised infrastructure humanity has built to rapidly convert resources into waste at a faster and faster rate.

Renewable Energy as vital and key to our future as it is, is not enough to solve these problems.

Fundamentally technology will not solve the problems that technology has created, and that’s why we need nature based solutions.

2019 – Commitment

In December 2019, BrightWind’s entire team spent a day in the west of Ireland planting native trees at Moy Hill Farm. Its important to plant the right tree in the right place. Commercial sitka spruce plantations provide poor habitat for native plants, animals and insects, and also acidify the soil.

At Moy hill farm, by integrating native trees around the farm, they will help to regulate the flow of water across the land improving the quality of the surrounding fields and will also help to clean our air, clean our water, enhance biodiversity and capture carbon.

See the whole team at the 2019 native tree planting day (video below) in the west of Ireland at Moy Hill Farm.
