Our Social Responsibility

Katalyst Technologies have over 1200 employees with operations in North America, Asia, and Europe, and are committed to operating responsibly throughout the world. Our previous Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives have been in a variety of important areas which include Diversity and Inclusion, Education and Training, Community, Ethics and Compliance, Health and Safety, and Environmental Sustainability.

The individual actions of our employees make a difference, by helping their fellow employees, and by being good citizens in their communities. We all contribute whenever we turn off unused lights, follow safety precautions, volunteer in our communities or solve client problems. We take these actions not because we must but simply because we care. We want to create positive results in the world, and we are given choices and opportunities to make a difference. When all of our efforts are reviewed, they reveal our ongoing commitment to operational and social responsibility to make this world better together.

We are proud of all our efforts towards building a sustainable society, but we are most proud of our efforts where we helped create a ‘lunch shed’ for a Government school in a village in India and most recently our efforts of being able to provide freshly prepared meals for people battling Cancer in association with Culinary Care.

FAQs

ForestNation is a social business. We combine commercial, social and environmental goals equally. We empower individuals, companies and organizations to fulfill their own missions whilst growing a forest and creating sustainable livelihoods. We believe that giving back to Mother Earth should be fun and inspiring.

CO2: A tropical tree absorbs 50 pounds of carbon dioxide per year on average throughout its lifetime.
O2: Trees breathe out oxygen 4 to 5 times the amount of CO2 they absorb each year.
Land reforested: 1000 trees per hectare is a general reforestation best practice.
Jobs created: It takes 68 hours for 1 caretaker to create 10000 tree seedlings and 1 hour per day to maintain them. That translates to 40 hours of work for every 1000 trees.

For every 10,000 trees planted at least double that will germinate naturally within 5 years providing for generations to come. Also the forest provides habitat & shade for animals, natural resources for locals and adds to the beauty of the region.

We plant in the forests of Tanzania, Haiti, Uganda, Malawi, Madagascar and more. All our Tree Planting Projects create sustainable livelihoods. All the trees absorb CO2, offset carbon emissions and contribute towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. More details about where we plant trees for each campaign are explained on the campaign page.

We work closely with our local tree nurseries to ensure bests practices are followed. They use agroforestry techniques where trees or shrubs are grown around or among crops or pastureland to increase natural reforestation and biodiversity as nature intended.

We mostly plant trees which provide harvest to the local communities. For example, fruit trees are planted around schools in Tanzania to provide nutrition to the children. Our trees also help avoid land degradation. For example, trees were planted along the Lushoto water catchment basin, which supplies fresh water to over 20,000 people in the Lushoto Township and is important to prevent future stream bank erosion.

It takes 8 to 9 months for tree seedlings to be prepped for plantation. Different species are stocked up and made ready for planting during favorable seasons. For example, our Tanzanian nursery plants from March to June and October to December.

A Tree kit has everything you need to grow a tree from seed. We plant matching trees for every tree kit you get as a gift. We also plant matching trees whenever you name your Tree on ForestNation.

Trees connect you with Mother Earth and ignite your nurturing instinct. Growing something from seed helps you experiencing nature’s magic and give back. Tree kits also support our local Tree kit maker (1000 kits create a full day of work).
