Panasonic Viet Nam donated 110,000 trees to Son Duong District, Tuyen Quang Province on November 18, in collaboration with the Centre of Natural Resources and Environment Communication and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment.

The donation is part of the company’s annual tree planting programme "Panasonic for a green Viet Nam" in 2021. This is the first year that the programme donated forest protective trees, with the participation of the local authority, business and local people, in which Panasonic provides trees for the local people to take charge of nurturing under the management of the local authorities. After eight consecutive years, Panasonic has donated over 250,000 trees to ten provinces and cities across the country, marking the 50th anniversary of its official presence in Viet Nam.

"Panasonic's annual tree planting programme is one of our activities to contribute to creating a green Viet Nam. I believe this is also consistent with the orientation of the Vietnamese Government. In the next 50 years, with a new business orientation of becoming a comprehensive health solution company, we are committed to making stronger contributions to the health of the Vietnamese people as well as the sustainable development of the country," said General Director of Panasonic Vietnam, Marukawa Yoichi.

Starting the annual tree planting programme in 2013, Panasonic focuses its activities on joining hands with the Government and local authorities to protect and develop tree areas as an effective way to realise the target of reducing CO2 emissions set by Panasonic.

This year, the programme supports Tuyen Quang for the first time, a province with a large forest area and suitable conditions for forestation. In addition, local authorities and people have been very active in sustainable forest protection and development in parallel with economic development. Being among the top three localities in the country in terms of forest coverage rate (after Bac Kan and Quang Binh), Tuyen Quang has played a very important role, as a part of the 'green lungs' of not only the north but also the whole country of Viet Nam. Implementing forestation in Tuyen Quang will be an effective contribution to reducing CO2 emission, increasing the oxygen reservoir of Viet Nam.

Panasonic donated 110,000 hybrid acacia and eucalyptus trees to develop Son Duong District's protective forest area, in an effort to protect one of the largest green areas in the north of the country and at the same time support livelihoods for local people. The company also donated 28 garbage containers to new rural communes to support local waste treatment and spread the message of environmental protection in the local community. — VNS
