AP Sensing's Tree Planting Program
AP Sensing monitors your assets, whether it's your power grid, traffic tunnel or regional train system. But we realize that there are other assets worth protecting.
About the Program
For every fiber optic sensing interrogator (DAS/DTS/DVS) sold, AP Sensing plants 100 trees in Malawi. This is made possible through a partnership with the NGO WeForest that began in the last quarter of 2019. We also plant additional trees every quarter to offset the impact of our AP Sensing business travel.
Why is AP Sensing Planting Trees?
- Climate protection and C02 emission reduction
- Forest restoration
- Social impact (increased livelihood for local communities, positive effects on local water supply and agriculture)
About the Project – Malawi
Severe deforestation and degradation have taken place in Malawi, especially in recent years. This particular project is focused on restoring the Mount Mulanje Forest reserve. A healthy forest in this area will support local agriculture, affect the water supply of surrounding villages and have an economic impact on the region. Additionally, the project seeks to protect species that are experiencing a sharp decline from deforestation, such as the Mulanje Cedar tree and Mulanje chameleon, which cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
The Mount Mulanje Forest reserve will be restored with 2 types of forests. Additionally, alternative job opportunities will be created by this project, creating a sustainable livelihood for the thousands of families living around the reserve.
Effects of Tree Planting
Trees are essential to the world we live in - affecting the planet, local communities, plant and animal species, air and water supply, and our overall health. Tree planting is a solution with countless benefits such as decreased pollution and cleaner air, reduced effects of climate change, and increased biodiversity and animal habitats. AP Sensing cares about our environment and our environmental impact, which is why we want to do our part to protect it and ensure its longevity.
At AP Sensing we work with passion for our customers and we take social responsibility. We are not only Leading the Way with Passion but also have Passion for Plants.
