CILEUNGSI – On Thursday (22/9), PT Aspex Kumbong took part in the declaration signing ceremony for the “5,000 Tree Seed Planting” program, courtesy of Bogor Regency’s Environmental Service, the Eco-Friendly Village program team, and KP2C DAS Cileungsi (community aiming to educate and warn Cileungsi locals of flood). The ceremony was held in Klapanunggal, Bogor Regency, and attended by numerous companies.
Each participant was required to donate at least 50 seeds of 1-meter fruit trees and send representatives to the ceremony and planting event, which followed after it. In the end, around 6,200 seeds were collected, far exceeding the program’s target.
Present on D-Day were program organizers, members from the Bogor Regency’s People’s Representative Council, and employees sent by companies along the Cileungsi River watershed. This event is an effort from the administration to restore the natural environment, which has been damaged by climate change, and prevent more impacts. It forms a part of the World Ozone Day and Zero Emission Day event series.
“I hope this [seed planting] activity and the greening program as a whole continue to run,” said Environmental Service head Ade Yana Mulyana.
The event opened with the declaration signing session, where company representatives took turns adding their signatures. Written on the declaration were three vows. First: Actively participate in nature preservation efforts. Second: Obey environment-related rules. Third: Commit to doing non-polluting actions.
Ade hoped this activity could be a momentum for all elements of society to gain awareness of environmental preservation issues.
He appreciated all guests, including PT Aspex Kumbong (Korindo Group), for their participation. This planting event, Ade said, could be an example for the local community to protect watershed areas and pay more attention to the surrounding environment. (PR)
