Husqvarna Canada Teams Up with Pro Soccer Teams to Score Goals for Trees

 
Every Toronto FC, Vancouver Whitecaps and Montreal Impact goal isn’t just good for the teams, they’re also good for the environment. Husqvarna Canada Inc., the official and exclusive lawn partner of each team, is working with One Tree Planted to fulfill  its Goals for Trees program that will see 100 trees planted for every goal scored this year by the three Canadian teams.
 
Goals for Trees is part of Husqvarna’s sponsorship programs with the Canadian soccer teams. Along with the tree-planting commitment the programs include half-time events with Husqvarna leaf blowers, branded field crew members and giveaways of custom-painted Automowers, decked out in each team’s colours and logos.
 
At just over half-way through the season, goals scored to date will account for more than 8,500 trees to be planted, which will have the potential to absorb more than 176,000kg of carbon dioxide per year.
 
“Husqvarna is very proud to sponsor not one team, but three with the Toronto FC, Vancouver Whitecaps and Montreal Impact,” said Michelle Sordi, director of marketing, Husqvarna North America. “With the Goals for Trees program we are able to bring together our support of the beautiful game with our belief in conducting business with a respect for nature.  Husqvarna is committed to taking social and environmental responsibility for our business.”
 
This commitment is evident through Husqvarna’s involvement with the United Nations Global Compact and FTSE4Good initiatives. Both of which help push innovation forward within the professional-grade battery-powered tool industry that include chainsaws, leaf blowers and lawn and hedge trimmers that offer traditional performance, but with a power source that provides a cleaner and quieter experience. Globally, Husqvarna Group is the market leader in outdoor power products and is also the market leader in development and sales of robotic mowers.
