The wood of memories
On the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the company, COIL decided to join the project “The wood of memories”, a memory for life in the Groane Park (*).
The project has two main aims: the first purpose is to improve the state of the environment increasing the wooded area along the exhisting rivers, in order to rebuild natural habitats and ecosystems of the park. The second purpose is to protect the environment and improve the quality of human life by soaking up pollution and dust from the air, the plants will absorb over 210 thousand Kg of Co2 per year.
Cherry trees, symbol of rebirth and auspiciousness, Tilia trees, symbol of longevity and Quercus petraea, symbol of power and strength, are the COIL plants that will grow in the Groane Park. A small gesture towards protecting the environment in which the company has been rooted for 60 years.
(*) Groane is a regional park in Lombardy established in 1976. It covers an area of 8,249 hectares in the north-west part of the metropilitan area of Milan. The name derives from the local historical name of the moors, called groane. The park has a rich fauna and flora, with elements of geological interest and contains numerous historically valuable sites and industrial archeology.
