Climate change and biodiversity loss are on everyone’s minds these days – as they should be.
Experts agree that reforesting our planet is critical if we are to reverse biodiversity loss and head off the worst of climate change. Because trees provide habitat to a number of species, store water, absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen through photosynthesis, they are one of our best allies.
Through dozens of projects around the world, Medtronic is lessening its environmental impact by conserving energy and water, increasing recycling, and reducing waste. These projects range from large, enterprise-wide corporate sustainability initiatives like energy reduction or building an onsite nitrogen generator, to smaller, volunteer-led environmental stewardship efforts at local sites.
