Maverick AV Solutions and Great Binfields Primary School team up for tree planting

Maverick AV Solutions teamed up with Great Binfields Primary School to plant dozens of new trees in the school’s woodland area.

The initiative was part of a commitment made at Tech Data Live 2019; to plant a tree for every visitor who attended its stand and offset the carbon footprint of exhibiting at the event.

Site manager, Darren Quilter, along with 6 pupils selected a part of the school’s woodland area as the replanting site,

Darren explains:

“The children love the woodland and we feel privileged to have it on site. With changeable weather we’ve lost quite a few trees over the last few months, so it is important we plant more to maintain a constant regeneration within the woodland, even if we won’t ever be able to sit under them ourselves.”

80 saplings of four different varieties of trees were planted: Field Maples, Elder Trees, Hawthornes and Willows. These are broad leafed trees chosen because of their high intake of CO2 and to bring greater biodiversity to the woodland. This will help sustain the local wildlife habitat for hundreds of years and reduce the carbon footprint of Maverick at Tech Data Live.

Anna-Marie Constantinou, Business Unit Director at Maverick UK, said;

“At Maverick we work to improve workplace environments, showcasing how videoconferencing and AV is transforming the way people collaborate together. It was a pleasure to contribute to our local natural environment and to kick off a sustainability drive within the Maverick UK business.”

Maverick is aligned with Tech Data’s sustainability commitments which can be found at
