Davies donates to sustainable forestry project in Uruguay

Davies Veterinary Specialists small animal referral practice is supporting the Forestal el Arriero Sustainable Forestry project in Uruguay by donating £2,250. This represents 30 per cent of Davies’ carbon emissions during 2020, via international credits.

The project in Uruguay represents the conversion of land in the east of the country, previously under extensive grazing by beef cattle, to high quality and high value timber production, which is expected to be used for long term products to ensure continued carbon storage. Forests are replanted after felling, providing continuous rotations of carbon capture.

“This inspiring project not only drives agricultural, forestry and landscape sustainability but it also provides enhanced employment opportunities, preserves biodiversity and protects habitats,” explained Davies green group manager Rachel Evans. “This is in line with our company values and beliefs of making a better
world for animals by improving the health and wellbeing of people, animals and the planet as well as being in line with our CPD biodiversity focus from last year.”
