A tree is planted for every successful headhunting project

“We con­sid­er it our social respon­si­bil­i­ty to be active­ly involved in the preser­va­tion of the bio­di­ver­si­ty and our forests. After all, we only have one,” says David Buch­berg­er, Man­ag­ing Direc­tor of Glasford Inter­na­tion­al Ger­many. The per­son­nel consultants, who have just recent­ly been named “Top Consultants 2020” by the dai­ly news­pa­per “Die Welt”, have active­ly start­ed a part­ner­ship with Treemer. The Treemer ini­tia­tive enables com­pa­nies to plant trees direct­ly and with­out detours as part of refor­esta­tion measures.
“Forests and their trees are par­tic­u­lar­ly impor­tant here because they store car­bon for a very long time in their wood and the for­est soil. In addi­tion, forests can fil­ter many pol­lu­tants from the air we breathe, some of which, such as nitro­gen, they actu­al­ly use for their own growth,” says Treemer.

A tree is plant­ed for each suc­cess­ful posi­tion filled on behalf of our clients. The ini­tia­tors of Treemer also explain why it makes sense to invest in the for­est as a resource: “Forests and the trees liv­ing in them are respon­si­ble for keep­ing our ground­wa­ter clean and drink­able. Their leaves and roots, the mush­rooms and even the entire liv­ing for­est soil func­tion like fil­ters. They fil­ter out many harm­ful sub­stances and slow­ly release the puri­fied excess water. In this way they also pre­vent flood­ing and erosion.
Ulrich Rit­ter, also Man­ag­ing Direc­tor at Glasford Inter­na­tion­al Ger­many, com­ments: “An enor­mous num­ber of ani­mals, mush­rooms and plants live in an entire for­est. Depend­ing on what the dif­fer­ent species offer or need, they adapt per­fect­ly. They form a liv­ing com­mu­ni­ty in which each species ben­e­fits from the other”.

The entire team of Glasford Inter­na­tion­al Ger­many is a sup­port­er of the ini­tia­tive: “We are real­ly proud that the con­cern for the envi­ron­ment is now active­ly lived out here and that we are all much more aware of the envi­ron­ment in our every­day lives,” says David Buch­berg­er. “Treemer has inspired us all.” There­fore, for every man­ag­er placed by Glasford Inter­na­tion­al Deutsch­land on behalf of its clients, there is also an offi­cial Treemer cer­tifi­cate as proof of the tree plant­i­ng that goes with it.
Accord­ing to Man­ag­ing Direc­tor Ulrich Rit­ter, the Treemer logo and the Treemer Ini­tia­tive will from now on be com­mu­ni­cat­ed to the pub­lic in the best pos­si­ble way. It is impor­tant to get as many oth­er com­pa­nies as pos­si­ble enthu­si­as­tic about this impor­tant cause.
