Grow

About the project

  • Starting from 2021, the motto “Let’s plant the future together!” will bring together our efforts in a new project – GROW. GROW symbolizes the investment in the future of the communities and states a message of long- term vision and commitment. Through GROW, we want to reiterate our care for nature, as well as enhancing awareness and cooperation between our company and the communities we live in.

     

    The Kronospan employees and volunteers from all over the world will join forces to plant 1 million trees worldwide. The afforestation activities will be organised throughout this year, in spring (April/May) and autumn (September/October). The project will be implemented in stages, at least until the goal to plant 1 million trees is reached and it will involve local communities and voluntaries.

    22 countries from all around the world joined the project: Belgium, Belorussia, Bulgaria, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Latvia, Luxembourg, Poland , Romania, Russia  , Serbia, Slovakia, Spain, Turkey, Ukraine, United Kingdom, U.S.A.
