Three words, an essential claim, a simple motto and the summary of an environmental report that will accompany the company’s activities throughout the course of 2020. This commitment will be reflected in the organisation of conferences on the theme of sustainability in the ornamental green sector, and in the continued adoption of virtuous behaviour in favour of green by those who have been cultivating and respecting plants for 110 years.
“Every action counts” is the new # to indicate that together we can make a difference and be an active part of the change, a change of which the company MATI 1909 wants to be the protagonist and promoter.
MATI 4 LIFE summarises the benefits that our nurseries generate for the improvement of the environment, the quality of life and the future of the planet. MATI 4 LIFE is the Environmental Report of the MATI 1909 nurseries, and is based on a study that has allowed us to identify and quantify the main environmental parameters related to nursery activities and the production of ornamental plants, and to compare them with the same data referring to highly humanised areas, such as urban centres and busy areas, paper mills and industrial areas and finally extensive traditional cultivations. Carbon dioxide sequestration, oxygen production, removal of pollutants and reduction of atmospheric temperatures are the parameters evaluated and compared, and the numerical data of synthesis are visible in the graphics on the right.
The study presented is the first analysis carried out in the nursery sector that compares environmental data from completely different contexts, and this means that the same can be used as a model extendable to other case studies.
