CBOD members plant resilient trees to mark Green Ghana Day

CBOD members plant on Green Ghana Day

The Ghana Chamber of Bulk Oil Distributors (CBOD) is proud to contribute to the national effort of restoring Ghana’s forest cover. In commemoration of Green Ghana Day, 50 members and officials of the Chamber participated in a tree-planting exercise at the Chipa Forest Reserve near Agomeda.

The Chamber’s members planted a diverse range of trees, including acacia, cassia, and mahogany, all of which are well-suited for environmental restoration efforts. These resilient species not only contribute to increased forest cover but also promote biodiversity and soil health.

After planting the trees, the Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Patrick Ofori said: “We are dedicated to ensuring the long-term success of this initiative. We are committed to a “maintenance culture” for the planted trees. In collaboration with the Forestry Commission, the Chamber will revisit the planting site every quarter to monitor the progress of the trees and implement any necessary maintenance measures.

The Chamber believes that planting trees aligns perfectly with Ghana’s national goals for environmental sustainability and public well-being. Healthy forests provide numerous benefits, including improved air and water quality, reduced soil erosion, and increased habitat for wildlife.

Through this initiative and others like it, CBOD strives to be a responsible corporate citizen, contributing to a greener and healthier Ghana for future generations.
