Spanish NGO La Fundació Antigua Caixa Sabadell 1859 has formally reopened the Can Deu forest in Catalonia, Spain, as part of a massive regeneration project co-supported by the Quadpack Foundation. The project is the first act to be sponsored by the new foundation, which was formed on 8th April by international packaging manufacturer and provider Quadpack Group.

"We have always strived to give back to the communities in which we operate. The formation of the Quadpack Foundation will help us formalise our support in terms of resources, planning and execution. Our objectives include boosting the local economy, assisting in the education of young people and working together with other agencies to make it happen," explained Tim Eaves, Quadpack Group CEO and president of the foundation.

In addition to sponsoring projects such as Can Deu, Quadpack will also allow staff to dedicate time and labour to help causes within the Foundation’s remit, in all areas in which it operates worldwide.

The Can Deu reforestation project came about after a storm destroyed much of the area on 9 December 2014. The forest, declared a Protected Area by the Catalonian government, is a centre for environmental education used by local schools, as well as a leisure area visited by some 150,000 people a year.

The forest's owner and manager Fundació Antigua Caixa Sabadell, in conjunction with the forestry department and volunteer associations, and with support from the Quadpack Foundation and local insurance firm Blat, is organising a three-year regeneration programme. The first phase started in January and February 2016, when 1,400 volunteers helped in the replanting of 5,000 pine and oak seedlings in an area of 15 acres. The Quadpack Foundation has pledged €27,000 over three years.

"This is a proud moment for us. We could not have wished for a more deserving venture to start our operations. The Can Deu forest is an important part of the local community and houses the Masia Can Deu museum. Young people go there to learn about sustainability and the forest's proximity to our Manufacturing Division made it a natural cause for us to support," said Eaves.
