Maxol recently joined forces with The Conservation Volunteers at a tree planting day at the Ulster Folk Museum.

Arranged in conjunction with PDI Technologies who Maxol partner with to run their carbon offset programme, the initiative forms part of Maxol’s commitment towards becoming a more environmentally sustainable company and aligns closely with their ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) strategy.

Maxol’s Carbon offset programme, supports multiple green initiatives locally and globally, including the planting of 10,000 trees across the island of Ireland.

The team of Maxol volunteers, including Maxol Board and family members, Noel and Barry McMullan, spent an afternoon planting saplings and more mature specimens on a new plot of ground at the Museum.

This is the second year Maxol has participated in the initiative. In 2022, a team led by Maxol CEO Brian Donaldson planted a new heritage seed orchard and folklore trail at the Ulster Folk Museum, which has become a key feature of the museum as well as a genetic seed bank to ensure the survival of endangered native tree species.

Kevin Paterson, Maxol’s Head of Retail NI, Maxol said: “As well as being a great day out for the team, volunteering days like this form an important part of our wider activities as a company to contribute towards a greener future.

“From global projects including hydro energy and agriculture & forestry protection, to the rollout of Maxol Recharge EV hubs and Maxol HvoPRO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) at select stations across the island of Ireland, as well as our 100% offset Premium Fuel offering, we’re committed to becoming a more sustainable business and investing in ways to reduce our carbon footprint.”

Dianne Keys, Operations Leader, The Conservation Volunteers added: “We’re delighted to welcome back Maxol for another tree planting day at the Ulster Folk Museum. Such initiatives are a key part of our mission to connect people and green spaces to deliver lasting outcomes for both.

“This tree planting represents a tangible contribution to global conservation efforts, creating habitats for wildlife and providing a green space for future generations to enjoy.”
