An environmentally and socially conscious organisation
Dream and Leap is committed to being an environmentally conscious organisation. Since its launch in 2019,
it has pledged to annually support the preservation and restoration of the natural environment.
REFORESTING THE AMAZON
Dream and Leap has pledged a further 10k trees to combat deforestation occurring in the Amazon rainforest.
Home to almost 30% of plant & animal species on Earth, the Amazon River Basin is the world's largest rainforest ecosystem. Within its 1.9 billion acres of rainforest it is home to iconic species from Jaguars to Macaws and from the Amazon River Dolphin to Black Spider Monkeys and Poison Dart Frogs.
The rainforest holds an estimated 90-140 billion metric tons of carbon and its forests play a critical role in the fight against climate change.
Dream and Leap's investment goes someway to protecting and restoring primary forests that will help stabilise the climate. It conserves habitats for the Rainforest's iconic wildlife species and it provides sustainable livelihoods to local people through agroforestry.
This tree planting project helps protect the Amazon's biodiverse primary forests and restore degraded land. Through its partnership with One Tree Planted, it works with local farmers to establish sustainable agroforestry using shade-grown cocoa, native tree species, and productive timber species. Whilst also providing training and technical assistance for participants in the sustainable agroforestry model.
BEE FRIENDLY FARMING, AUSTRALIA
Dream and Leap was proud to pledge 10k trees to Bee Friendly Farming (BFF) in Australia, a certification program that works with land managers across Australia to help protect, preserve and promote pollinator health.
The program enables farms and landholders to enhance habitat for bees and other pollinators through the planting of a range of pollinator-friendly species including local species of Acacia, Eucalyptus, Grevillea, Hakea, Callistemon, Casuarina and Leptospernum.
The program has numerous ecological benefits, from the creation of pollinator-friendly habitats and year-round creation of food source for honeybees, to the suppression of weeds and overall reduction, prevention and management of ground salinity and erosion.
The BFF Australian program is overseen by a national taskforce of Australian scientists and farmers, who set the standards for sustainable farming on important concepts like planting pollinator food resources, providing nesting habitat, and incorporating an integrated pest management (IPM) strategy.
Dream and Leap is committed to being an environmentally conscious organisation. It is a registered contributor to the Million Tree Challenge having initially planted 10,000 trees as one part of its ongoing efforts to be more socially and environmentally responsible.
Benefits in contributing to this global challenge include:
Supporting animal habitat ecosystems
Restoring areas impacted by wildfires
Contributing to the long-term health of National Forests
Raising awareness about the importance of trees and reforestation
The Million Tree Challenge is a global partnership operated by One Tree Planted, an environmental charity focused on global reforestation that Dream and Leap supports annually.
Trees are remarkable plants. They are the most affordable and efficient carbon capturing machines on the planet. They offer biodiversity, water, social and economic impacts the world over.
Planting trees is one of the best ways to combat the damaging effects of climate change. Trees help clean the air we breathe, filter the water we drink, and provide habitat to over 80 percent of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity. They also provide tremendous social impacts by providing jobs to over 1.6 billion people, empowering women in underdeveloped nations, and repairing communities devastated by wildfires.
