LEVA-EU member AureusDrive partners with Arbofino in a large tree-planting initiative

In a bold step toward CO2 neutrality, the e-bike brand will be responsible for a 200 teak tree plantation in Manabi, Ecuador. Over 20 years this plantation will compensate upwards of 115 tonnes of carbon. Following the growth period, trees can be harvested, with profits used to plant further trees; this creates a circular carbon sequestration scheme. Additionally, AureusDrive will reforest 1/8 hectares of jungle in the same location.

The next step is calculation of grey energy usage during e-bike manufacturing and disposal, from here a further compensation plan can be made.
