EY Belgium creates a forest of 2ha in Oostende
In January, EY has pledged to plant over 83.000 trees with Life Terra in 25 different countries.
Belgium contributed 5.000 trees, of which more than 700 have been planted in Oostende last Saturday by EY employees and their families. The conditions were not easy: because it had rained recently, the terrain was so wet that even knee-high boots could not prevent wet feet! But despite this, we saw a lot of hard work and dedication and all trees have been planted.
So thanks to EY Belgium, there will grow a new forest of 2ha which will eventually be part of the larger ambition of the municipality of Oostende to create a forest of 150ha. Congratulations!
