In support of the Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) initiative and in memoriam to honour Her Majesty, market leading aluminium foil tray manufacturer, i2r Packaging Solutions, has recently planted a tree in the grounds of their corporate headquarters in Telford – Shropshire.
As a nationwide initiative created to mark the Platinum Jubilee, the QGC was due to conclude in December – the end of the Jubilee year. However, as the official tree planting season in the UK runs from October to March, the initiative has been extended to include the full tree planting season, beginning in October 2022 and concluding in March 2023.
The aim of the QGC was to create a living legacy with over a million trees planted in Her Majesty’s name across the nation during the first planting season, October 2021 to March 2022. The extension of the QGC initiative will build on this legacy and serve as a lasting tribute to Her Majesty’s extraordinary service to her country and her people.
The event, which was watched by many of the firm’s employees, was conducted by i2r’s managing director, James Knight, who said: “As a lasting legacy in honour of the Queen, it’s entirely fitting that i2r should add their contribution to the Queen’s Green Canopy initiative, particularly having won two Queen’s Awards for Enterprise in recent years. Our tribute also serves to recognise the Queen’s unstinting support to British business and her remarkable leadership throughout her reign.”
The company is Europe’s largest aluminium tray producer. Manufacturing over 1.4 billion products annually, i2r supplies many major food producers and retail brands, as well as to wholesaler and distributor markets worldwide, including Central & Northern Europe, Asia, North & South America and Australia.
i2r will add their tree to the QGC interactive map.
