Brackendale teams up with World Land Trust to help combat deforestation

16 July 2021

Brackendale, a private equity agency specialising in investor marketing and media relations, has teamed up with registered charity World Land Trust (WLT) in a bid to help combat deforestation.

According to the English broadcaster and natural historian Sir David Attenborough, who is a patron of Word Land Trust, humans cut down up to 15 billion trees per year. This results in accelerated global warming and will ultimately threaten mass extinction.

Brackendale has pledged to make a donation for a tree to be planted in tropical forests through WLT’s Plant a Tree programme, which is currently restoring habitat in Brazil, Borneo, India and Kenya, every time it issues an invoice to one of its clients, no matter how small the invoice.  Our goal is to plant at least 200 trees over the next 12 months.

Fay Margo, CEO, Brackendale Consulting: “Deforestation still remains one of the biggest threats to our civilisation. We have been advising fund managers on best practice ESG for the past few years and decided it was time to actively impact climate change ourselves. Private equity funds who choose to work with us will also be doing their bit for sustainability. Word Land Trust seemed the natural choice of partner given its relationships with respected local organisations around the world and commitment to conserving biodiversity.”

World Land Trust and its overseas project partners have been instrumental in the purchase and protection of more than 2 million acres of tropical forest and other threatened habitats worldwide.
