In 2008, CLP initiated a plan to plant 1 million trees over five years around the region. This commitment is underpinned by a series of care and wellness programmes to ensure that the trees not only grow in good health but also benefit the ecological, social and economic landscapes in their living environments.
It also supports our Climate Vision 2050 and provides opportunities to engage the community with a range of hands-on experiences. We planted 250,000 trees in Hong Kong, Guangdong and Sichuan, China; Gujarat, India; and Khanom, Thailand in the first year and their survival rate stands at 85 to 95%.
