Thanks to ZERO IMPACT®, it will be reduced and offset the CO2 emissions contributing to the creation and the protection of more than 5.800 mq of growing forests in Rome, in the Volusia and Madonnetta areas.
SINCE 2010, LIFEGATE IN COLLABORATION WITH THE MUNICIPALITY OF ROME, PARTICIPATES IN THE VEGETATION RECOVERY PROJECT
Since 2010, LIFEGATE in collaboration with the Municipality of Rome, participates to the recovery vegetation project which is part of the interventions that the Municipality intends to implement to reach the targets set in the Kyoto Protocol.
The increase of the forestal areas brings significant environmental benefits also on a local scale in terms of reducing noise and air pollution, regulation of microclimate and energy conservation, development of green areas accessible by the public and biodiversity.
In the Volusia and Madonnetta areas were carried out reforestation and conservation activities for a total area of 66,000 square meters.
