30 trees for our 30th anniversary
1 tree for every year
For 30 years our Polish colleagues have been devoting their time and energy to Purmo and helped turn our company into the leading manufacturer and supplier of heating systems in Poland. So we couldn’t let this special birthday go by unnoticed. Our local team decided to commemorate the anniversary by voluntarily planting 30 trees alongside a cycle path in a public space in Rybnik, one for every year that the Purmo brand has been active in the country. In addition to the festive angle, this activity fits in perfectly with the company’s global sustainability programme aimed at reducing CO2 emissions in the production process as well as caring for the community and local environment.
In agreement with the city hall in Rybnik and ecology experts it was determined that the trees would be planted along the newly created bicycle path in the area of a picturesque Nacyna river. The selection of tree species – most appropriate to the local ecosystem – was consulted with local environmental protection specialists. The entire sales, technical and marketing team of Purmo Poland took part in the planting, under the expert supervision of urban greenery specialists. In the end a row of 30 maples, hornbeams and acacias was planted by the new bicycle path in Rybnik. ‘We do hope that this project will allow the local community, walkers and cyclists to enjoy this place even more in the future and will remind us of the history of our company’, says Janusz Skibniewski, Marketing Cluster Lead at Purmo Polska.
Andrzej Iżycki, Vice President for Sales in Poland, adds: ‘We are happy and proud of our contribution, and we believe that thanks to this initiative, in a few years, this place will be even more friendly to its residents. The Purmo trees will enrich the ecosystem and serve the local community for many decades to come, generating the oxygen we all need to live.’
