THORLUX Lighting has planted its 150,000th tree at its carbon offsetting project in Devauden.

THORLUX acquired the 215-acre site at Cwm Fagor in 2009 and since then the company has been planting native broadleaf species including oak, birch, ash, willow, hornbeam and cherry.  The  project is designed to neutralise the CO2 emissions from lighting installations all over the UK and was the first site in Wales to be accredited to the Woodland Carbon Code, an independent standard devised by a group led by the Forestry Commission to certify woodland creation projects that are designed to measure and account for the capture and storage of carbon.
