Chevron Bangladesh launched a tree plantation drive at Rajuk Gulshan Central Park on Monday making the World Environment Day.
Chevron Bangladesh President, Kevin Lyon, inaugurated the event, which was attended by senior officials of its Dhaka headquarters.
The event was organized by the Bangladesh chapter of Chevron's XYZ group – an employee network to connect, develop and inspire Chevron's workforce through innovative opportunities that are aligned with its business objectives to ensure the corporation's future success.
Other officials present included Chevron's Operations Director, Gordon Murray, and External Affairs Director, Naser Ahmed.
As part of Chevron Bangladesh's ongoing efforts in the area of environmental stewardship, the company has been involved in tree plantation drives since 2005. Over the past eight years, over 130,000 timber-yielding, fruit-bearing and medicinal saplings have been planted in different areas near its three gas plants in the North-East of the country, said a Chevron press release.
