On the occasion of our 20th company anniversary last year, we started a campaign whereby our customers who have generated more than CHF 20’000 (or the equivalent in EUR or USD) donate 20 trees to the one-tree-one-life campaign of the Borneo Orangutan Survival BOS Switzerland Foundation.
Matrix Fine Chemicals is proud to announce that thanks to your active support, we will be able to plant a total of 196 trees in Borneo. Matrix supported the campaign with an additional amount. This planting campaign not only benefits the orangutans on Borneo, but also the local population and ultimately, we can make a contribution to the reforestation of the rainforest.
The rainforests in Indonesia provide us with the oxygen we need to breathe and to live. The rainforests regulate our world climate, but every year on Borneo alone 1.3 million hectares of rainforest are destroyed. This is one of the highest rates of deforestation in the world. Day by day, the livelihoods of orangutans and other threatened species are also dwindling. In the past 20 years orangutans have lost 55 percent of their natural habitat. Their population has therefore shrunk by more than 80 percent in the last 20 to 30 years. Even our children and grandchildren could no longer see orangutans in the wild! We are convinced that this commitment is also in your interests.
