Poland Echo goes planting flowers

Green projects
Echo Investment in association with the Łąka Foundation is to create city meadows in Warsaw, Łódź and Poznań.

The first meadows are to be created in Warsaw on ul. Towarowa, in Łódź next to the Zenit residential estate and in Poznań near a planned future project on ul. Opieńskiego. The first meadows will cover an area of about 4,000 sqm on land provided by the city authorities. Street. The first four meadows will be perennial and will cover a total of about 4,000 sqm.

Since we have a large number of projects, we have a significant impact on how the largest cities in Poland are developing and how they operate. That is why we have decided to start a social program to set up urban wildflower meadows that will have a positive effect on the urban environment and biodiversity and they will also reduce smog levels. The first meadows are to be created this year so that by the spring they can be enjoyed by city residents. We want to develop our programme over the coming years together with the Łąka Foundation so that we make a significant contribution to improving the climate in our cities.
Nicklas Lindberg, CEO of Echo Investment.

The Łąka Foundation aims to support biodiversity in cities by creating wildflower meadows. It was set up in 2014 and has already completed projects in Warsaw, Kraków, Wrocław, and Białystok.
