Our planet’s natural landscapes are rich, vibrant and full of biodiversity. To help take care of them for future generations, we’re working with committed groups to protect woodlands, peatlands and wildlife in Scotland and around the world.
In Chile, we’re proud to partner with Tu Mejor Huella. They’re a group of committed environmentalists who are passionate about protecting and restoring 5,000 square meters of Torres del Paine National Park, one of Patagonia’s most iconic landscapes.
Our work with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (Scotland) at peatlands in Cairngorms National Park will allow the peat to regenerate and support rare plants and wildlife.
Trees. Lots of them. A million, in fact. That’s how many we’re going to plant across the four corners of Scotland before 2025.
Reforestation has already started near two of our Scottish Highland distilleries. 389,000 trees have been planted already. They’ll eventually absorb about 70,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide. In real terms, that’s the equivalent of 10,500 flights around the world or driving nearly half a million times from London to Edinburgh!
The woodland projects at Ballygowan (near Oban Distillery) and Allt Ruadh (near Glen Ord Distillery) in the Scottish Highlands, will restore vital habitats for wildlife including grouse, crossbills, and red squirrels, while helping to fight the effects of climate change.
Johnnie Walker is playing an important part in restoring nature, reversing the climate and biodiversity crises, and ultimately creating a landscape in better health for future generations.
