We’re excited to share the news that dbfb has recently formed a partnership with GreenTheUK, a renowned environmental organisation dedicated to promoting sustainable practices and preserving our planet’s precious resources.

As part of this collaboration, we’ve committed to planting 800 trees by the end of 2023, contributing to the growth of local woodlands and providing numerous benefits for our communities. In addition, we’re also encouraging our customers to get involved with an exciting initiative: for every Google review we receive, we will plant 5 trees.

At dbfb, our vision is to be recognised as the best service led communications provider, where great people aspire to work and sustainability matters to us all; and our partnership with GreenTheUK aligns with our commitment to creating a greener, sustainable future.


The Importance of Tree Planting:

Trees are vital for the well-being of our planet, playing a crucial role in mitigating climate change and enhancing the overall ecological balance. By planting trees, we actively combat deforestation, lower carbon dioxide levels, and promote biodiversity. In addition, trees improve air quality, create habitat for wildlife, stabilise soil, and help conserve water.


Advantages for local communities and businesses:

Planting trees offers a multitude of benefits that positively impact both local communities and businesses. Here’s how:

  1. Enhanced air quality & improved quality of life: Trees act as natural air filters, absorbing pollutants and releasing oxygen, leading to improved air quality. Cleaner air translates to healthier communities and a better quality of life for residents and employees.
  2. Up to 51% of the UK public experienced an increase in their happiness levels when in woodlands (Forest Research, 2021).
  3. Beautification and tourism: Thriving forests provide visually beautiful landscapes, attracting visitors and tourists, which in turn benefit local businesses such as restaurants, hotels, and retail outlets, resulting in economic growth and employment creation.
  4.  Noise reduction & lower CO2: Trees act as sound barriers, reducing noise pollution from traffic and other sources. In addition, our UK forests act as vital carbon sinks, storing around 1 billion tonnes of carbon, the equivalent of around 4.3 billion tonnes of CO2 (Forest Research, 2021) helping to mitigate the effects of climate change.
  5. Community engagement and social impact: Tree planting initiatives bring communities together, fostering a sense of pride and ownership as well as helping to promote environmental awareness, and create lasting positive change.


Our Partnership with GreenTheUK:

Partnering with GreenTheUK aligns perfectly with our values and commitment to environmental sustainability. With a proven track record of successfully implementing tree planting initiatives, GreenTheUK, will use their expertise and resources to help ensure the trees we plant will have a significant and lasting impact. By working together, we aim to make a tangible difference and inspire others to join the move towards a greener future.
