Solaria, a leading company in the development and generation of photovoltaic solar energy in southern Europe, and the Provincial Delegation of the Regional Ministry of Sustainable Development of Toledo have organised today a day of reforestation of almost 3,000 trees in the province of Toledo. The IES Azarquiel secondary school and the San Antón neighbourhood group collaborated in this action. The event was also attended by Tomás Villarrubia, Provincial Delegate for Sustainable Development of Toledo and José Gutiérrez Muñoz, Provincial Delegate for Education, Culture and Sports.
This reforestation has been carried out in different forest parks in the province with the aim of repairing the damage caused by the storm Filomena in 2021. It will also contribute to the recovery of vegetation and promote recreational-environmental interest in different forest parks in Toledo and Olías del Rey.
More than 100 young people from IES Azarquiel, members of the neighbourhood group of San Antón, representatives of the Department of Sustainable Development and Solaria employees have participated in the implementation of this reforestation project. A total of 2,963 specimens of the following species have been planted: pine, holm oak, rosemary, hackberry and ephedra. The selection of species has been made according to the existing vegetation in the area of action, and according to the climatological and geological characteristics of the environment that favour their integration and rooting.
This action is part of the environmental improvement and integration actions, understood as compensatory measures, derived from the construction of Solaria’s projects in Castilla la Mancha and, specifically, in the province of Toledo.
In the words of José Luis Muñoz, Solaria’s environmental manager: “This reforestation day demonstrates Solaria’s commitment to the environment and, specifically, to the preservation of biodiversity and ecosystems. In addition, with this type of action we want to promote the awareness and collaboration of our employees with the local population”.
