C-Roc plants tree with Reforest’Action

C-Roc wants to plant trees thanks to you to generate a positive impact in favor of eco-responsibility.

Reforest’Action’s “Responsible Purchasing” program allows our customers to plant a tree to offset the CO2 emissions associated with the manufacturing of purchased products.

Our partner Reforest’Action offers several levels of commitment to best meet our expectations. We have chosen to donate a portion of the total amount of your purchases on our web store.

We can choose the planting area of our trees. This is the perfect opportunity to act locally for the environment.
