Catgill Wood 10 years on
Highlighting our long-term commitment to sustainability and carbon sequestration, this year marks fifteen years since some 5,000 saplings were planted in Catgill Wood.
In the winter of 2007/2008, the JBA team lent a helping hand planting a variety of trees including Birch, Willow, Alder, Hazel, Mountain Ash, Cherry and Holly. Having established nicely, the trees now cover a steep valley of the Broughton Hall Estate and even feature on Ordnance Survey mapping.
Over the years, we’ve kept a careful eye on the trees at Catgill Wood and maintained our commitment to carbon sequestration by planting even more trees.
Our long-term commitment
Following our move to a new head office at Broughton Park, in February 2020 we embarked on a project to plant a further 600 trees. In time this new woodland will become home to birds, mammals, insects, and woodland flora. Whilst also contributing to carbon capture.
Sustainability remains at the heart of everything we do at JBA. And we’re committed to taking meaningful action to minimise our climate impacts. As part of this we’re measuring our full carbon footprint with the Group-wide objective of becoming a Net Zero business by 2040 at the latest.
