A month-long tree plantation campaign was concluded on Tuesday by planting trees at the newly constructed BGMEA headquarters at Uttara in Dhaka.
BGMEA has begun the campaign in the month of August to pay tribute to the memory of the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman and to those who were martyred on August 15, 1975.
Later, the BGMEA president planted trees in different garment factories in Chattogram, Gazipur and Narayanganj with the aim to inspire people from all walks of life to fill Bangladesh with greenery.
BGMEA has taken the initiative of making the BGMEA headquarters located at Uttara in Dhaka as a green building and hopes to achieve LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from US Green Building Council (USGBC). The new BGMEA building will be equipped with energy saving lights, rainwater harvesting, solar PV, energy efficient water-based chiller system, and sewage treatment plant (STP).
