Royal Van Zanten's sustainability program was put together by the company's employees. To make their passion their legacy, employees are taking responsibility and putting it into action. The program is based on the employees' vision: We care, so we act. Improving the carbon footprint and restoring damage done to nature and the environment are at the foundation of this.

"We planted a tree for every employee in Uganda, and my colleagues in South Africa did the same," says Jamanda Bwambale of Royal Van Zanten Uganda. "That will grow into a total of up to 2 hectares of new forest in Uganda at our locations in Mukono and Wakiso."

More than 700 colleagues in Uganda and 50 in South Africa have planted 20 different native and local trees that provide shelter and food for the native fauna. The coordination and tree selection was done together with the company Chloroplast, which is affiliated with the National Forestry Authority for Uganda.
