In conjunction with the charity Protect Earth, Gibtelecom has now planted 12 species of native saplings kick-starting a three-year commitment to increase the natural biodiversity of the area

Gibtelecom, a global provider of data centre facilities, managed solutions, and cloud services have planted over 600 native British trees at Pantpurlais farm, Llandrindod Wells, Wales in the first of several planned environmental development projects.

Business Development Executive, Jason Bamford, represented Gibtelecom at the company’s plot, aptly named Mount Pleasant after Gibtelecom’s Gibraltar data centre premises. To reduce the impact of his own carbon footprint, Bamford made the 280km round trip from his base in Bristol by electric car.

Darren Hudson, Pantpurlais, said, “it’s good to see a company support biodiversity projects to help reduce their carbon footprint and even better that they provided ‘boots on the ground’ to support the effort.”

The Pantpurlais land, comprising of 9 hectares, has been split into sections specifically to create and restore a mosaic of national priority habitats including a traditional orchard, wet woodland, oak woodland, and an acre of wildflower meadow.

Not only will this assist in the development of re-forestation but will encourage and attract local wildlife including red-list species Lesser Spotted Woodpecker, Spotted Flycatcher, and Mistle Thrush.

With operations in Gibraltar, UK, Dublin, Isle of Man, and Malta, Gibtelecom is looking to engage in similar environmental engagement projects in each location, not only for the obvious benefit of offsetting their carbon footprint but to celebrate and re-develop the natural biodiversity of each area they work in.
