Trees for travel
For the organization, implementation and control of the planting of the Jatropha shrubs, Kia works together with the reputable organization Trees for Travel. Trees for Travel, a registered charity with CBF, started in 2001, first in the Netherlands with development projects that led to a lasting increase in income and the reduction of the greenhouse gas CO2. Both goals were achieved through sustainable forestry and energy projects in developing countries.
