MISSISSAUGA – Thanks to every goal scored by Toronto FC, Vancouver Whitecaps and Montreal Impact teams, Canada will have 17,600 more trees! Husqvarna Canada Inc., the official and exclusive lawn partner of each team during the 2017 season, is working with One Tree Planted to see through its commitment from its Goals for Trees program that promised 100 trees to be planted for every goal scored by the three Canadian teams.
Goals for Trees will complete the planting between April and May, with 5,000 trees in B.C., 7,400 in Ontario and 5,200 in Quebec.
“Husqvarna is excited to be able to work closely with the Canadian pro soccer teams and One Tree Planted on this initiative,” says Michelle Sordi, director of marketing, Husqvarna North America. “Husqvarna is committed to taking social and environmental responsibility for our business. With the Goals for Trees program we’re able to bring together our support of Canadian soccer with our belief in conducting business with respect for nature.”
This commitment is evident through Husqvarna’s involvement with the United Nations Global Compact and FTSE4Good initiatives. Both of which help push innovation forward within the professional-grade battery-powered tool industry that include chainsaws, leaf blowers and lawn and hedge trimmers that offer traditional performance, but with a power source that provides a cleaner and quieter experience.
