SCG Chemicals (SCGC) and its subsidiary Long Son Petrochemicals (LSP), in collaboration with the People’s Committee of Vung Tau City planted 400 trees in the area of Nui Lon (Vung Tau City), equivalent to 3.26 hectares of forest.

This activity not only supports Vung Tau to gear itself toward a green city model, responds to the call for one billion trees to be planted nationwide from 2021 to 2025 by the Prime Minister, but also demonstrates the ESG strategy (Environmental, Social, and Governance) that the company is pursuing, in which Net Zero is one of the major commitments.

The plantation of 400 trees includes 100 poinciana trees, 300 yellow-flamboyant trees.

Mr. Dhep Vongvanich, Advisor to the President & CEO of SCG, said: “In the Kick-off Conference to develop the Vietnam National Action Plan toward Circular Economy late June 2022, SCG and its subsidiaries had shown our strong commitment to work hand-in-hand with the government and the private sector of Vietnam to tackle the emerging issues of waste management, climate change and so on, toward the Net Zero Goal in 2050. For SCGC and LSP, we have actually started our actions a long time ago, as a joint effort with the local community of Ba Ria - Vung Tau. From the waste management project at schools and commune in Long Son, to a wider scale project on provincial level, and now we are delighted to work together with Vung Tau city on this plantation project. These actions clearly manifest the corporate’s continuous commitment to a sustainable future of the locality and Vietnam.”
