Coillte establishes a new not for profit entity, Coillte Nature

1 August 2019

Coillte, manufacturer of Medite Smartply, has established a new not for profit entity, Coillte Nature, which will focus on the environment and recreational forests.

Coillte Nature will target the delivery of new woodlands facilitating species diversity, biodiversity and carbon sequestration as part of the Government’s National Forestry Programme.

Coillte has always approached its 30 year role as manager of Ireland’s forestry assets in an environmentally sustainable manner. Protecting the environment will continue to be an intrinsic part of Coillte’s sustainable forest management, as part of its normal commercial forest operations.

With the establishment of Coillte Nature, the company is seeking to advance its sustainability agenda by undertaking large discrete projects with a separate non-commercial focus. Coillte Nature will collaborate with other organisations through joint ventures, etc., in implementing forestry and recreation projects.
