REGENERATREE: INCREASING CARBON SINKS Through URBAN AFFORESTATION

Project Info

Project Description

ENSYDE believes that increasing carbon sinks will be the long term insurance towards air pollution and climate change. To take an active role in mitigation, we have initiated a program to increase green cover in urban areas. Our first effort in this direction is a focused plantation drive. It is proposed that we will facilitate several such tree planting initiatives year on year. After completing two successful events, the first being in September 2019 led by a student volunteer, where 100 saplings were planted,  and in January 2020 we had our second edition where we have planted 1000 saplings.

Impact Delivered
1. In the first two initiatives, ENSYDE has planted 1100 saplings in Bengaluru.

2. On an average we assume that one tree would reduce 1 tonne of CO2e in its lifetime (25-30 years). Therefore, assuming a survival rate of 80%, through our 2 planting drives thusfar, we have facilitated ~800 tonnes reduction over lifetime of the plants.
