With more than 40 years in the industry (since 1982), we’re proud to announce a new partnership with Flash Forest, a pioneer in innovative reforestation technology. 

We’re no stranger to delivering top-quality, energy-efficient windows and doors that enhance the comfort and aesthetics of homes. With a team that’s passionate about sustainability, we are committed to serving customers with eco-friendly solutions that make a positive impact on both homes and the environment.

The new partnership with Flash Forest represents a significant step forward in our sustainability efforts. Flash Forest uses advanced technology, including drones, to plant trees efficiently and effectively. Their mission aligns perfectly with Nordik’s goals of environmental stewardship and sustainability.

About the Partnership

A man looks down at the tree he's planting in a serene forest.

Our collaboration with Flash Forest highlights our dedication to environmental stewardship and sets an example for how businesses all over the world can make a significant positive impact on the planet.

Flash Forest is a trailblazing company that leverages automation, AI, plant science, and advanced drone technology to rapidly plant trees to speed up reforestation. Their mission is crystal clear: to plant 1 billion trees to help heal our planet’s lungs, and not stop there. Their mission goes beyond just fighting climate change; it's about reviving ecosystems and protecting biodiversity through large-scale tree planting. Their holistic approach also prioritizes community engagement, involving the consultation of local Indigenous communities and creation of employment opportunities for their members.

We have teamed up with Flash Forest to plant 70,000 trees in 2024 to support post-wildfire  reforestation right here in our own backyard. By joining forces with Flash Forest, we are taking concrete action to reduce environmental impact and promote a greener future. This collaboration highlights our dedication to environmental stewardship and sets an example for how businesses all over the world can make a significant positive impact on the planet.

Impact of the Partnership

The partnership is set to make a positive environmental impact starting in 2024. Here’s an overview of the impressive numbers and projections:

  • Trees Planted by Nordik in 2024: 70,000

  • Hectares Reforested by Nordik in 2024: 43.75

  • CO2 Sequestered by Nordik’s Trees Over Their Lifetime: 28,000 tonnes

To put these figures into perspective:

  • The 70,000 trees planted by Nordik will cover an area equivalent to 98 football fields.

  • The CO2 sequestered by these trees over their lifetime is equivalent to the emissions from a substantial number of window installations (exact number to be determined).

  • The amount of CO2 absorbed by these trees over their lifetime is comparable to the annual carbon emissions of 1,971 Canadians, highlighting the significant contribution our partnership with Flash Forest makes to environmental sustainability.

Beyond the numbers, our partnership with fellow Canadian company Flash Forest will help restore ecosystems outside our window. Our project will be taking place in Assinica, Québec, an area where severe wildfires impacted the once-lush boreal ecosystems and also the adjacent Oujé-Bougoumou Cree Nation. Our partnership with Flash Forest symbolizes our collective commitment to sustainability and community impact, and stands as a reminder of corporations' vital role in the mitigation of climate change.

Environmental Benefits

The collaboration between Nordik Windows and Doors and Flash Forest brings significant environmental benefits through large-scale tree planting. As mentioned, by planting 70,000 trees, we will capture 28,000 tonnes of CO2 during their lifetimes, which helps to fight climate change by reducing greenhouse gases, like carbon dioxide (CO2), which trap heat in Earth's atmosphere and add to global warming.

This initiative also benefits local ecosystems in several ways. By providing homes for wildlife, the newly planted trees create habitats for various species, supporting biodiversity and promoting healthier ecosystems. Additionally, the trees contribute to improving soil health by preventing erosion and enhancing soil fertility through their root systems. This helps to maintain the stability of the land and promotes the growth of vegetation. 

The trees also play a crucial role in supporting water cycles by absorbing rainfall, reducing surface runoff, and replenishing groundwater sources. This not only helps to regulate local water flow but also ensures the availability of clean water for both wildlife and human communities. In essence, having these trees around helps maintain a balanced and robust environment, ensuring its sustainability for the future.

Our efforts also help regenerate forests, helping safeguard natural habitats. This is especially crucial because forests are home to around 80% of the world's terrestrial biodiversity. So, by restoring these vital ecosystems, we are not only combating deforestation but also preserving countless species of plants and animals.
