HSM and OroVerde celebrate 10 years of environmental partnership
| 01 June, 2018
German shredder and baling presses manufacturer HSM has been supporting the non-profit tropical forest foundation OroVerde for ten years.
The “Land of Trees” project covers all OroVerde activities in three different protected areas in Guatemala. From mountainous fog rainforest in the “Sierra de las minas” mountain range (biosphere reserve) to the plains around “Bocas del Polochic” (game reserve) to the deepest core area of the “Sierra del Lacandón” national park.
Since 2008, HSM has been supporting the protection of these valuable habitats in three protected areas with more than 466,000 hectares, making a valuable contribution to species and climate protection.
“Thanks to the support of HSM and our project partners, we can now carry out effective rainforest protection in so many project communities in Guatemala - and continue to expand our work”, reports Dr. med. Elke Mannigel, Head of International Projects at OroVerde. “We would like to sincerely thank HSM for their financial commitment and hope that other supporters will follow suit and promote our important work on rainforest and climate protection”, said Dr. Elke Mannigel.
