Relevant project data

CO2 absorption project through the reforestation of a terrain of 13.13 hectares. Native species have been planted, such as Galician pine (Pinus pinaster ssp. atlántica) and oak (Quercus robur), both adapted to the area's environment and with great potential to offset the carbon footprint. This action contributes to the environmental sustainability and to the action against climate change, promoting the protection of the biodiversity.
