Framingham SOURCE – Ameresco Extends Partnership with Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust to Plant 1,000 Trees

FRAMINGHAM & LEEDS, ENGLAND – Ameresco, Inc., , a cleantech integrator specializing in energy efficiency and renewable energy, today announced it has extended its partnership with Yorkshire Dales Millennium Trust (YDMT), an independent charity dedicated to supporting the people, landscape and wildlife of this special area. The partnership extension will enable the planting of 1,000 trees and restore species-rich wildlife habitats in the region over the next two years.

Through this extended partnership, Ameresco will plant an additional 500 trees in the region.  Last year, Ameresco supported the planting of 500 trees through a combination of financial aid and employee volunteer efforts to maintain woodlands in the Yorkshire Dales region. Over the next two years, employee volunteers from Ameresco will continue to work alongside the YDMT team to maintain and plant trees across the woodlands. This effort is designed to reduce 80 metric tons of carbon dioxide throughout the next 50 years, which is vital to the wildlife and biodiversity in the region.

Ameresco will also contribute to the meadow restoration work of YDMT, creating vital wildflower habitats for threatened pollinator species.
