Tree planting in Varybompi and Kozani, reforestation in North Evia and environmental training in 10 schools.
The environmental and educational activities of We4all are supported by PPC, by sponsoring actions of tree planting, reforestation and education of students on environmental issues, with the active participation of the company’s employees.
In the framework of the cooperation between we4all and PPC, specific actions have already been implemented throughout Greece.
In Varybombi, a tree planting was implemented in a part of a burnt area, in cooperation with the Municipality of Acharnon, while the tree planting that took place in the Petranon community of the Municipality of Kozani involved also pupils of the Primary School and Kindergarten of the local community. PPC employees also participated in the tree planting.
In northern Evia, as part of the reforestation and education programme in disaster-affected areas, PPC and we4all ensured the planting of 2,500 olive trees, which will effectively help farmers affected by the fires. This reforestation is a part of the overall strategic framework of support for the areas of northern Evia, affected by the devastating fires, implemented by PPC.
Investing in the dynamics and action of tomorrow’s active citizens, PPC also supports we4all’s “Green Future” educational programme for sustainability awareness, through which educational programmes have been implemented in primary schools. Children were introduced to terms such as environment, climate change, recycling and volunteering and learned that the concepts of responsible citizenship and respect for the environment are complementary.
The CEO and Co-Founder of we4all, Mr. Yannis Iliopoulos, mentioned: “Our partnership with PPC is one of the most important alliances of the year, having a holistic approach that not only promotes the environment and sustainability but also touches on social and educational issues, supporting affected areas and helping us to raise awareness of our planet among thousands of children.”
“In addition to implementing EU and national environmental legislation, PPC joins forces with institutions and organisations, such as we4all, whose work contributes to achieving the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Supporting such environmental alliances to halt the loss of biodiversity and involving our employees in activities such as tree planting, helps to tackle climate change and strengthen local communities that have suffered the consequences. For PPC, the strategy of creating shared benefits between Society, the Environment and the Company, which we are implementing, is an important priority,” said the Sustainable Development Director of PPC, Mr. Achilleas Ioakeimidis.
