AZ Austria has reforested more than 4,000 trees, absorbing over 1,200 tons of CO2

AstraZeneca Austria is also contributing to the Group’s global ambition to become Carbon Negative through a project to offset emissions by protecting green areas and planting new trees in a specific area of Tanzania (offsetting emissions in a tropical area generates greater environmental benefits)

Since the project started in December 2018, more than 4,000 trees have been planted by AstraZeneca Austria, reforesting an area of 3.79 hectares and offsetting about 1,277 tons of CO2
