Seeing the Future from the Trees - Kornit Blog

We’ve long touted the sustainable, eco-friendly credentials of Kornit Digital’s inks and on-demand production process. Answering the call for a more responsible textile industry is one of our core purposes, and it is one we strive to honor in our daily lives, as well. That is why Kornit is participating in the “Climate Forest” afforestation project.

The “Climate Forest” is an urban tree-planting project led by the Good Energy Initiative, a Climate Changing Social Enterprise NGO that has been operating since 2006. As Kornit Digital works with textile companies worldwide to make the earth a cleaner and more hospitable habitat, we are proud to join this project put our values to work in our own communities.

On average, one tree soaks up 750kg of carbon dioxide during its lifetime, lowers the temperature in its vicinity, filters air pollutants, serves as a habitat for a variety of plants and animals, and adds to the rich beauty of our landscape. We’re committed to planting as many new trees in our remote townships across, overlooked public spaces to revitalize our neighborhoods, improve their air and water quality, and make them a more attractive place in which to live. This is our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint.

The “Climate Forest” project strives to return life to these areas by building a native ecosystem based on the abundance of trees. It encourages these municipalities to enrich their planted areas and create healthy ecosystems by adding native bushes, beneficial perrenials, and pollinating flowers. Among the benefits:

  • Urban sprawl decreases natural tree cover and the absorbing effect of vegetation and soil. Without the benefit of trees and vegetated infrastructure, waterways are polluted as oils, heavy metals, and other harmful substances are washed away. Fish and wildlife suffer, drinking water becomes expensive or impossible to reclaim, property values are reduced, and our living environment is degraded. The project turns non-absorbing areas into healthy, water-absorbing soils by rebuilding soil fertility and texture using compost, organic material, and introducing the continuous roots of trees, these lands absorb and retain rainwater, transferring excess water into the local aquifer below.
