With the commitment to give back to community and work towards programs and initiatives that help protect our land, eighteen volunteers from Asco Motors Nabua spent Friday afternoon planting mangroves at Bulei Road, Laucala Beach Estate in Suva.
The cold weather did not dampen their spirits as the team was all geared up to contribute towards the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility Program – Driving towards a Common Purpose.
As part of the CSR Plan, a number of projects have been identified and planting mangroves was the first for this financial year. The Committee decided to join hands with the Department of Forests to help protect our marine life and our shores from the effects of climate change. Mangroves is said to be natures answer to global warming hence the team did not hesitate in volunteering to plant ten thousand seedlings. The team was also assisted by four Officials from the Department of Forests.
