Babcock and partners at Shallgreen

Members of the MoD Phoenix Transport Contract lead by Babcock, the contract managers, have collectively contributed to the creation of a new woodland at Shallgreen, Angus, in recognition of an element of the carbon footprint arising from the vehicles used under the contract. The woodland at Shallgreen has been planted for multiple purposes: carbon capture, habitat enhancement and sustainable extraction of timber.
