Keyloop partners with Trees for Life to help rewild the Scotland Highlands
Keyloop, the leading global provider of technology solutions to the automotive industry, has become a Silver Partner of Trees for Life, the award-winning conservation charity dedicated to rewilding the Caledonian Forest.
In partnering with Trees for Life, Keyloop aim to help the charity in its mission to save a habitat of global importance, the Caledonian Forest, home to rare wildlife and incredible biodiversity. To date, Trees for Life has planted nearly two million trees to encourage forest regeneration, but also works to reintroduce missing species, such as red squirrels, and educate communities about the importance of rewilding the Scottish Highlands.
The partnership comes after Keyloop bolstered its footprint in Scotland with the acquisition of SilverBullet in December. It is also investing in a new office in Glasgow where SilverBullet is based.
To kickstart the partnership, employees were given the option of donating their Christmas gift from Keyloop to the charity, which raised £900, with 42 employees donating to Trees for Life. Now, as a Silver Partner of Trees for Life, Keyloop has made a substantial donation of £1,200 to their project work in 2022. Furthermore, Keyloop has agreed to match the total from the Christmas donations that employees made in lieu of taking a Christmas gift, which has seen 300 trees being ‘planted’ in their virtual grove.
Commenting on the partnership, Tom Kilroy, CEO at Keyloop, said: “We are thrilled to join Trees for Life in its ambition to rewild the Scottish Highlands and inspire others to help protect this amazing habitat. Our employees have already shown a great desire to contribute to this charity through our Christmas donation scheme, and we can’t wait to get involved in more fundraising projects in 2022.”
Chris Aldridge, Head of Fundraising & Engagement at Trees for Life, comments: 'We are delighted to welcome Keyloop on board as a Silver Partner and look forward to working with them as they make their commitment to rewilding the Scottish Highlands”.
