Care the Wild “Plant & Protect” Protect
GGC participated in reforestation under the Care the Wild project “Plant & Protect” project, a project that creates cooperation between the private and public sectors as a mechanism to raise funds for planting new trees, planting extra trees, and promoting tree care.
This project focuses on taking care of the trees that have been planted and helping them grow into real forests under the concept of “protection”.The fundraisers and donors can stay updated on the results of the forest planting through the Care the Wild application, learn about the growth of the trees, as well as community work. Participation in maximizing the results for community development and taking care of the plants to grow are important parts of the country’s forest expansion.
In this regard, the project creates knowledge and understanding about reforestation, the environment, and community development. In addition, the project directly responds to GGC’s goals in offsetting carbon emissions.
