SPAR Gran Canaria cooperates with the Foresta Foundation planting trees

February 28, 2024 IN THE CATEGORY: Climate, Community, Environment

SPAR Spain partner in Gran Canaria cooperates with the Foresta Foundation reforesting 2,000m² around Osorio estate, planting 250 trees.

With this initiative, SPAR Gran Canaria reinforces its historical collaboration with the Foresta Foundation to enrich the forest mass of Gran Canaria with faya and paloblanco specimens to the almost 6,000 that have already been planted. This invaluable forest will reduce approximately two tonnes of CO2/year over the next 30 years.

Community spirit

Approximately 120 SPAR Gran Canaria employees and their families enjoyed a day in nature with workshops for kids, including building bird feeders and musical butterfly activities. The eco-friendly day concluded with a countryside picnic and a guided tour of Finca de Osorio.

Since 2007, SPAR Gran Canaria has partnered with the Foresta Foundation, actively contributing to environmental initiatives. Over 17 years, collaborative efforts resulted in successful reforestations in various locations on the island. Locations include Morro Santiago, Tenteniguada, Finca de Osorio, Valleseco, Los Llanos de la Pez, Finca Las Tabaibas, Artenara, and San Juan De Dios. The commitment continues to create a better living environment for the future, emphasising the retail company’s respect for the land.

SPAR Gran Canaria has an extensive responsible retailing programme. Initiatives include supporting local growers, reducing its environmental footprint through generation power through photovoltaic panels and more.

About SPAR Spain

SPAR Spain was founded in 1959 when a group of wholesalers who wished to join an international organisation came together. As a result, the brand became the first voluntary trading chain to be established in Spain, having been granted a license by SPAR International. Together, 13 regional SPAR wholesalers actively continue the expansion of the brand across the country.
