This year, WWF-Vietnam launches the Caring Trees Program, calling for corporate supports to plant trees in critical areas in the country. The program offers businesses with various values, from brand opportunities to customers and staff engagement, besides tremendous benefits for the well-being of both environment and local people and a sustainable future for the community at large.

Caring Trees Program

Companies can choose to participate with different planting packages, varying in the number of trees planted. All participating companies will get updated on the trees growing progress, receive ‘Caring’ Certificate and be acknowledged as ‘Caring’ corporates by WWF on many communications channels to external stakeholders. The different planting packages come with various extra values, including opportunities for branding, and engagement with staff and customers.

Joining force with WWF in this program, companies can help local people in critical areas adapt to extreme impacts of climate change towards a sustainable future of the country. For example, Thua Thien Hue Province where every year, local community suffer from storm and flood with sea water intrusion into land, causing erosion, bringing down houses, damaging crops and aquaculture ponds and in worst cases, taking lives. Mangrove afforestation in such area will not only contribute to control climate change, but also to improve the livelihoods of local families, providing them a safer and better living environment.

“Since mangrove trees were planted around my aquaculture ponds over the past two years under (WWF) project, I saved hundreds of millions of dong each year” said Dang Duy Manh, a local farmer living in the Huong Phong Commune, Thua Thien Hue. (source: Vietnam News)
