In our mission to provide clients with well-built housing and develop integrated communities, social responsibility is an essential component.
Developing big residential compounds next to the forest or even in the center of the city attracts the need to educate the residents to live in harmony with nature and in accordance to the laws of it, respecting and protecting the animals in the area and taking care of the forest and the environment.

IMPACT VOLUNTEERING TRENDS
We act in two directions, both physically, by planting trees, but also morally, by educating the public to follow the worthy models, with respect to significant aspects of existence: a healthy lifestyle, the need to preserve the physical condition, the benefits of parent-child activities, outdoor movement, the importance of the quality of the air we breathe and solutions to improve it.
The Forest protects us. We protect the Forest.
Our biggest project, Greenfield Residence, is embraced by Băneasa Forest. And if the forest protects us and takes care of us, in return, we have the moral duty to protect it and pass it on to future generations at least as we received it. Thus, we are actively involved in the maintenance and ecological actions that take place in the Băneasa Forest area.
The "monster" from Baneasa Forest
In October 2019, IMPACT launched a manifesto event: Clean and Run, the largest Running and Cleaning initiative in Baneasa Forest, which gives participants the opportunity to practice nature sports and, at the same time, be responsible for the environment through a civic action, collecting garbage from nature. Clean and Run means movement and care for the environment, empowerment and civic spirit. For more details, access the website:
We want plogging to become a popular concept in Romania, practiced as often as possible, for added health and a clean, normal nature.
IMPACT supports and encourages the initiative of the residents of Greenfield, who started in 2017 "Great Cleaning - Băneasa Forest - Greenfield", an event that takes place every year, with the urge "help us make the forest as it should be --> CLEAN! ".
In all these events participated approx. 500 people, who collected over 5,000 kg of garbage from Băneasa Forest.
Only 1ha of forest absorbs 30-60t of polluting particles yearly
In 2014 we made a promise, to plant a tree for each built apartment. So far, together with the volunteers, the residents in our neighborhoods and beyond, we have managed to plant 3,500 trees in Băneasa Forest and the surrounding area.
The plantings were guided by Romsilva specialists, who explained both the planting procedure and the beneficial impact of their action.
For us it is extremely important to educate children with love and respect for the environment, giving them models worth following.
PETITIONS: THE GREEN LIFE IS OUR STATEMENT
IMPACT often initiates researches to find out the impressions of the residents and their expectations regarding the lifestyle in Greenfield, we ask for feedback and we actively support them in their efforts to protect and conserve the environment.
In the April 2019 study about Greenfield, we evaluated the housing experience and we found out that people expect the green areas stay the same, without any tree cut.
In addition, we initiated discussions with the authorities to protect the green areas and we also started a petition that claims the Declaration as "Forest – Park" of the 5 ha forest area from Greenfield neighbourhood.
We care about the flora and fauna of Băneasa Forest, this is why we have taken action to help the birds, especially on cold period of time, but not only.
We engaged Greenfield community into building little tree houses for birds, carefully placed in the trees.
The activity made the children and the adults more responsible and caring with the birds.
We love nature and consider properly to teach Greenfield kids about the fauna from Băneasa Forest, since they live nearby.
Therefore, we started organizing free Birdwatching clubs, attended by both children and curious parents.
VALUES AND TRADITIONS
WITHOUT TRADITIONS WE HAVE NO FUTURE!
From the desire to carry on the Romanian customs, in a continuously changing society, IMPACT has regularly organized activities to preserve and promote the traditions, especially among the young ones.
IMPACT wants to actively contribute to forming a community with principles and values, starting with the smallest residents in the assemblies they develop.
Romanian Christmas carols are a special delight for this holiday, as Easter eggs painting remains one of the favorite activities of the little ones.
IMPACT believes in the power of example in the process of formation of the young generation, which is why it organized cultural and entertainment activities on Christmas and Easter.
