Corporate Social Responsibility

We have been on a real path towards environmental sustainability and respect for human rights since 2018.

We know the difficulties of importing from the Far East. However, we have managed to select a pool of suppliers who respect the environment and workers’ rights without having to give up efficiency, speed and affordable costs.

Our commitment is reflected in the proposals we make to our customers, which focus on respect for the environment and responsible production.

We have obtained ISO14001, Ecovadis and SA8000 certifications on business ethics and environmental responsibility, as well as being proud Sedex members and  of the UN Global Compact, complying with all ten (10) points they advocate.

Furthermore in 2020 we launched nudo-naturemade. Body care accessories made of 100% natural materials, vegan and free of any kind of plastic material. 

Reforest the planet with Forest Nation

Solution Group srl is proud to announce that starting January 2021 we have secured a partnership with Forest Nation, an English company committed to reforesting certain areas of our planet.

We have decided to sponsor a project in Tanzania which helps the local population manage the forests we finance by creating jobs for the local population as well as having a clear reporting on the CO2 absorbed and the O2 emitted in the atmosphere.

For every €5000 spent with us we commit in planting 100 trees completely free of charge for our customer. The initiative can be advertised in your promotional campaigns and you will receive a certificate for every purchase mentioning a detailed reporting on the benefits you are creating by buying with us.

Your Impact

In the Eastern and Western Usambara Mountain Ranges where we plant, heavy deforestation has ruined the livelihoods of many locals. We aim to reverse that and improve life for the surrounding communities in a number of ways.
  • By providing seedlings to families to plant on their farms. Once they mature, they produce a regular harvest, yielding food and potential income.
  • By cultivating 100 mature fruit-bearing trees, $700 of income will result for Tanzanian growers and yield 10 tons of oxygen per year.
  • By closing the inequality gap by offering employment to 200 women year-round and up to 800 women seasonally.
  • By growing fruit trees in school backyards through our Green Schools Program, where we empower students who visit the nurseries regularly to learn about horticulture and botany. They help plant the trees that beautify their school and the food grown provides an additional source of nutrition.
  • By sequestering approximately 2.50 tons of CO2 per year.(per 100 mature fruit-bearing trees), you erase the CO2 footprint for 2 passengers taking a roundtrip flight from New York to Los Angeles.
  • By planting 10,000 trees you reforest 10 hectares of land.
  • By planting trees along riverbanks, which ensures a fresh water supply.
  • By planting varieties that yield fruit, medicine and oil.
  • By providing additional timber for the local wood industry to source.
  • By building community amongst village volunteers who foster brotherhood as they support tree planting activities and learn more about the environment.
  • By enhancing natural resources that help farmers produce better crops.
  • By inspiring tourism with greener landscapes.

History

The United Republic of Tanzania became independent in 1964 when Zanzibar and Tanganyika merged. Often referred to as “The Cradle of Civilization,” northern Tanzania is where the oldest human skull was found.
The citizens hold general elections every five years to name their leaders, even with 90% of Tanzanians living in rural areas. Over 120 tribal groups are represented across the country.

Geography

Tanzania is the largest of all countries in East Africa and is bordered by the Indian Ocean. Once entirely bush and savanna, the landscape is now semidesert. The country is home to over 400 million wild animals, which include zebras, giraffes, lions, wildebeests, crocodiles and giant turtles. In addition, Tanzania boasts the largest population of elephants that remain.
